When Blue Belle developed laminitis and was diagnosed with Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Catherine contacted The Laminitis Site for help. Following information about diet and exercise from TLS, Blue Belle made a full recovery and has been free of laminitis for 2 years.
Blue Belle and her 7 year old rider Amy are carrying out a sponsored ride of 5 miles on Monday 25 May 2015 to raise funds for The Laminitis Site. The Laminitis Site provides information about laminitis and supports owners of laminitic horses and ponies, funds research and carries out the rehabilitation of horses and ponies with laminitis.
Please support Amy and Blue Belle to raise awareness that horses and ponies can and should recover from laminitis, and to raise funds to help The Laminitis Site continue to help hundreds of horses and ponies around the world to recover from, and never get, laminitis.
Amy and Blue Belle can be sponsored through CrowdFunding site YouCaring - please click here.
