Helping Horses Feel Their Best is My Passion

I’ve spent my entire life around horses…
Now, I’m able to help them live their best lives.

Hey there, I’m Brooke Drassal.

I hopped on my first horse at age 2, a very naughty shetland pony with a will and a mind all her own. From that moment on, I was hooked.

Over the last decade, I’ve been living and breathing equine rehabilitation and injury prevention. Between conducting original research with Dr. Sheila Schils on the efficacy of FES to receiving multiple degrees and certifications as an equine practitioner, my goal has always been to help my clients have happier, healthier, and more comfortable horses.

Take a step-by-step approach

No more throwing solutions against the wall and seeing what sticks. I spend time fully evaluating your horse, consulting with your veterinarian, and developing a therapy plan based on tested and proven techniques.

Listen to both clients and horses

Helping your horse mentally and physically feel top notch is just as important as his ability to perform. That’s why I’ll always be honest about what I can do to help you achieve your goals while making sure we’re staying true to your horse’s best interest.

Customize Every Therapy Plan

No two horses are alike and neither should their therapy plans. Whether your horse needs FES, massage, or a combination of therapies, I’ll come up with a tailored plan to fit his needs, your expectations and budget.

Quite honestly I’m in heaven when I can work with any horse, any discipline.
