About the Instructors
These courses were a collaboration between Dr. Angel and Jennifer Thackery. Please click this link to learn more about Dr. Angel. Jennifer Thackery has been active in the veterinary and equine nutrition arena for over 27 years. Working as a veterinary technician, teaching at the local business college in their veterinary assistant program and developing their accredited equine program and also teaching those classes along with small animal courses. She studied Naturopathy and Holistic Nutrition in graduate school long after her Bachelors Degree in Biology with an emphasis on carnivore nutrition. Jen went on to find a company that resonated with her belief system that all bodies, human and animal, can heal themselves when they are provided the proper support. She has aligned herself with that company, Dynamite Specialty Products, as an advocate for horses and horse rescues for 16 years. She also volunteered as the only local large animal humane agent for 9 years and she worked for the city as a small animal humane agent. She was the education chairman years ago for what was the largest umbrella equine group in the region, the Northland Horseman's Association, and she wrote equine health articles for their quarterly publications. Jen also developed an interest in barefoot trimming and has been successfully trimming her own horses for 4 years. She has completed the Angel's Animals Equine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy course and earned her Equine Craniosacral Certification and is currently working on the Animal Neuro-myofascial Release Technique Course. She has pursued these courses not as a business venture but rather to help her own horses and rescues. Jen resides in northern Minnesota with her husband on a beautiful 40 acre farm along with their 4 horses, Caz (a little Lustiano rescue), Serene (an Andalusian rescue mare), Siroco (an Andalusian gelding) and Gio (Georgian Grande). They also love and care for 2 rescued Greyhounds, Smoke and Tris, a formerly feral kitty named Snickers and 2 guinea pigs.
