About Me

Me on Hershey

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Casie Bazay. I’m an NBCAAM certified equine acupressure practitioner and a freelance writer.  You can find many of my articles in The Horse.

I’ve had a passion for horses since a young age, and I can’t imagine my life without them.  My horses have taught me so much, and I find great joy not only in riding, but also in caring for them.  I currently own four quarter horses–Hershey, Bob, Kady, and Lee Lee.

I was a competitive barrel racer for many years, and only after a strange injury (which stumped a number of vets) occurred with my favorite barrel horse, Hershey, did I become interested in natural horse health.  I was fortunate enough to recieve a grant from my Indian tribe–The Chickasaw Nation–so that I could attend Tallgrass Animal Acupressure School, based in Colorado. I graduated in 2009 and then became nationally certified in 2010.  Learning about Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupressure sparked an intense interest in me to learn more about complementary medicine and other forms of ‘natural’ equine health options.

Along with studying acupressure, I’ve also studied equine nutrition and am a graduate of Dr. Kellon’s NRC Plus and Nutrition as Therapy courses.  Equine nutrition is one of my very favorite subjects to write about.

My most recent natural horse health interest has been learning the natural trim.  I am self-taught natural trimmer, although my husband is a trained farrier and has helped me quite a bit along the way.  I use Pete Ramey’s natural trimming methods, and now maintain my four horses’ hooves on a regular basis.  It’s hard work, but I take great pride in being able to provide my horses’ hoofcare.

Of course, I do have a life outside of horses.  I’m a mom of two beautiful children, and they are my pride and joy!  I’m an avid reader, I dabble in young adult fiction writing, and I enjoy experimenting with plant-based recipes, among other things.

I hope you enjoy The Naturally Healthy Horse!

Ta-ta,

Casie

  1. Hi Cassie,
    I so appreciate all the information you share with The Health Horse. Thank you so much for all that you do. I have learned a lot from you that has been beneficial for my horse. I have a question for which I have not been able to find an answer for online and that is, “Is Cilantro safe to feed to horses ?” My horse loves Parsley and Cilantro as fresh treats from my organic garden. I know Parsley is safe but what about Cilantro ?
    I look forward to your reply.

    Thank you in advance.
    Patricia

    1. Hi Patricia–glad you’re finding the blog helpful. :-) Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer for your question, but now you’ve got me interested in knowing the answer too. An equine herbalist would probably be the best person to ask. Good luck!
