Available qualified chiropractors within Australia are slowly growing in numbers, suiting the demand for this type of practice. There are those that cater to animals in general and those that specifically focus on horses.
The best I have seen so far may be qualified in this field but they also have a background of veterinary practice focusing on horses, acupuncture or perhaps osteopathy, causing them to be someone who is qualified to look at the horse from all angles, giving a holistic approach to alleviate a problem.
For someone interested in specialising in chiropractic work that is focused on horses, there is a long path ahead of you to be qualified in this area.
Chiropractic courses generally focus on work on people and these studies can be around five or six years in length. Once completing this or having become a certified veterinarian, there are animal specific chiropractic courses that are open to you, based on your acquired knowledge or qualification which is listed as a prerequisite to partake in the animal related chiropractic course.
