The author of this website has no intentions of replacing qualified veterinary care for the treatment of headshaking syndrome. It is recommended that all owners of horses with headshaking have a thorough work up and evaluation done by their veterinarian.

The purpose of this website is to provide current treatment information for headshaking syndrome, offer support for owners, provide a center which includes a boarding situation tailored specifically for headshaking horses and offer evidence-based treatments in collaboration with qualified veterinarians.


I would like to say at this time that I am always open to any treatment that shows promise and would like to hear open dialogue about headshaking syndrome. It is important to keep in mind that the goal is to cure headshaking by focusing on those treatments that show the best chance of success.

Speaking of success, this is another term that requires definition. How do we define success in headshaking? From an owners standpoint having their horse content in the pasture without any treatment other than a mask on might be success. Another owner might feel that being able to ride their horse is the goal. From a treatment standpoint, the horse should be free of any headshaking symptoms past the time when there might be a natural remission period (approx. 3 months). I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Please email me and I will post them for discussion.
