Holistic Equine Agistment and Rehabilitation - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Kellosheil Park, near Bathurst NSW, provides an opportunity to agist your horse, while accessing our Herbal tinctures (if needed) for illness or injury Recovery. The Equine rehabilitation team is headed by Cath McDowell.

Holistic Equine Agistment and Rehabilitation

We provide separate 4 acre paddocks which your horse will share with one or two others. We personally feed, rug all the "patients" and where appropriate mix the herbal treatments into their morning and evening feeds. This daily handling and observation helps us assess progress in each individual animal.

Agistment Costs $220 per week. If a herbal program is recommended, in most cases the cost is LESS THAN $40 per week. (Of course we will always obtain your consent before commencing/ changing any Herbal program.
