Connie : Demonstration Horse
We are delighted and proud to introduce Connie. A great passion of the HorseVetDentist, is to give all horse owners a better understanding of the importance of dentistry for horses and why it is essential to have regular checks carried out.
We can only appreciate the need for dentistry by actually looking inside a horse's mouth and seeing what it is all about. That's where Connie comes in! Connie has joined the team as a demonstration horse. A Quarter horse rising four years of age, Connie has the perfect mouth to demonstrate the many changes that occur in early life.
Connie was trained by John Woods. A highly respected and renowned trainer from Tooradin, Victoria (click on the link to John's Facebook page).
As a result, Connie is the perfect demonstration horse and she accompanies the HorseVetDentist to many events.
Connie has become a very popular member of the team and gets lots of compliments at the events she attends. Look out for her in the future!!
