Teri Capaldi has been involved with horses for over 30 years. Her specialty is breeding and showing cutting horses. She is a native Californian and works in both the Los Angeles and Paso Robles areas.

The following cases reflect Teri’s results using the Electro Equiscope.

1) Van Snow, D.V.M., of Santa Ynez, California, diagnosed Spooky’s Smarty Pants, a cutting horse futurity prospect, as having pulled the suspensories in both a front and rear leg just weeks before the futurity. The mare was treated using the Electro Equiscope at the suspensories, as well as at points for overall well-being. The mare won Open Reserve Champion at the Fort Worth NCHA Cutting Futurity out of over 600 horses, earning a check for over $140,000.

2) A three-year-old gelding owned by Jack Elliott of the Atwood Ranch in northern California came up sore in the hind-end at the Mid-State Futurity in Paso Robles, California. The gelding was treated with the Electro Equiscope and made it to the final round. There, they tied for 1st place and won the cut-off, winning the Non-Pro division.

Avis Bell has also been involved with horses for over 30 years. Avis’s specialty is in barrel racing and Western performance. Avis competed on a colt at the NBHA Minnesota state finals in barrel racing and after being seeded 18th took third place in the fourth division championship. She also participated in the World NBHA championships in Augusta, Georgia.

Avis currently owns Animal Alternatives in Minnesota and has had horses flown in from all over the country to receive Electro Equiscope treatments.

The following cases reflect Avis’s results using the Acuscope and Myopulse.

1) Vince, a barrel racing and roping horse, slipped on the ice and broke a bone in the ileum, or pelvic area. Veterinarian Tom Prieve, D.V.M., suggested the horse be put down due to this extreme injury. After six treatments, Dr. Prieve was amazed with the results and stated, “Whatever Avis is doing, have her keep doing it.” Two and a half months later, Vince, feeling the effects of Electro Equiscope therapy, broke free and ran bucking and kicking down the alleyway, to the surprise of his owners.

2) Bugsey, a 22-year-old barrel racing horse that had performed all over the continental United States and consistently placed at the top, was injured in competition. The diagnosis: “He would remain crippled for the rest of his life.” Due to his age, arthritis, and this new injury, the veterinarian’s comment was, “He really has no purpose left.” He suggested retirement in pasture. Bugsey had six treatments on his right shoulder using the Electro Equiscope and has been sound ever since. Avis competed on Bugsey throughout 2002. Avis said, “Whenever old Bugsey keeps the barrels up, we are always in the money, even at the ripe old age of 23.”
