    The BEST chiro in the state is 3 hours away from me. He's also a vet. My horse doesn't have serious enough problems for me to justify going that far for a chiro adjustment. But, if I would even have a big issue, I know exactly where I would go if my current chiro cannot help me.

    Plus, it works in my favor that my chiro and my vet are great friends so they both know what the other will do, when it comes to treatment protocols.

    I think it is up to each individual horse owner to decide if they need a vet chiro .... or just a chiro.

    Thanks Beau.
    I think I will just focus on equine chiropractic/ massage courses and not become a vet then.
    Thanks everyone!

    In any state you have to be a licensed vet or a human chiropractor to practice on horses. I wanted to do it till I found that out.
