Another service that Dr. Simonson provides centers around the athlete. Due to her extensive experience vetting endurance competitions, and her time working with race horses on and off the race track, Dr. Simonson is uniquely qualified and passionate about enhancing the performance of your equine athlete. Whether you are preparing your horse for an event or season of competitions, she can provide treatments and assistance on the farm, at the show venue, training center or race track. She regularly visits the Tampa and Calder racetracks and Palm Meadows training center in Florida and can make similar arrangements to work with your horse in Texas and Kentucky.
She is also well versed with the FEI/Racetrack Drug Rules and can assist you in staying within the allowable guidelines. Because the rules limiting medications is becoming ever more stringent, the need for the use of non-drug therapies is becoming all that more important. That being said, it is our belief that the holistic approach to healing is actually more curative, safer and therefore more effective in the long run. Please refer to the medicine bag for a description of how these alternative therapies can be applied
