TheraPlate & All About Equine Work Together To Improve Equine Lives
Since its inception, TheraPlate has been committed to helping our equine friends live their best lives. Now the lucky horses at All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. are getting to live their best lives courtesy of the caretakers and time on the TheraPlate.
All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit that was founded in 2009 by a group of people that were sick of seeing countless horses being neglected, abandoned, or sent to auction/slaughter. Working hard they turned a family-owned ranchette into a working sanctuary and rehab center for horses, and since its start, they have had over two hundred horses come through their doors to live healthy, happy, and productive lives.
Being a non-profit specialty, therapy items are not always easy to get, but thanks to a $4,000 grant from the EQUUS Foundation and a separate corporate donation of $2,250 they where able to secure the funds and provide their equine residents the undeniable benefits of a TheraPlate. The EQUUS Foundation is the only national charity in the United States that is one hundred percent dedicated to ensuring the welfare of horses in the states, by sharing the horses ability to empower, teach/heal and by providing financial support, recognition, resources, guidance, and services, to equine organizations in the states.
The horses and staff at All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. are thrilled with the results they have seen in three horses so far thanks to regular use of the TheraPlate. “TheraPlate has a great application available for download and use with cell phones, making it easy to follow during a session. We are also learning more about the many conditions that can benefit from the TheraPlate, and we are expanding its use as horses with these conditions come in”, said Elaine a representative from All About Equine. Cahill is a twenty-year-old quarter horse that was suffering from an abscess and after getting used to the therapy plate he seemed to thoroughly enjoy his time on it; and since then he has been adopted to a loving home! Kasey is another senior resident at the center. At twenty two years young, this gentle giant Clydesdale has had chronic hoof and abscess problems since he came to them two years ago; but since he has been getting on the TheraPlate he can move with ease around his paddock and perks up after his sessions on the plate. From the biggest residents to the smallest, TheraPlate can help out any horse; just like Robbie the resident pinto miniature horse that has Cushing’s disease. After being introduced to the TheraPlate recently he now helps himself to the platform! “All in all, our horses appear to enjoy their time on the equipment, and it seems to have a beneficial effect to those horses that have been treated.” Said Elaine.
TheraPlate is the Official Therapy Plate of the US Equestrian, providing equine athletes increased circulation and pain reduction, enhanced muscle tone and overall improvement in the quality of their warm-ups and cool-downs during training.
