As a professional working and teaching equine podiatry, I travel all over Spain, France and South America mainly trying to change old and obsolete customs; ways of doing which go against the horse and his wellbeing as a specie. My philosophy is not fundamentalism, nor the radicalization of any technique. I enjoy creating spaces to comfortably integrate new ideas and promoting them through the people. This holistic festival is a meeting point between professionals and equine fans, in which different activities are carried out, with the common denominator of enhancing the holistic care (“Global Care”) of both the horse and the people.
I firmly believe that there’s another way of communicating with horses and concerning their healthcare, I stand up for those “soft”, natural, coherent and non-invasive cares without ever despising the allopathic veterinary nursing when it’s necessary. These beliefs motivates and pushes me to organize this event every year contacting professionals worldwide who offer these alternatives.
