***Equine therapy is not meant to replace proper veterinary care. If your horse is ill, injured, or has an undiagnosed lameness, please call your veterinarian. If you have an emergency, CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN!
If your horse is currently under veterinary care, clearance for equine therapy must be provided by the attending veterinarian. Please do not waste my time or your money booking with me if your horse requires veterinary care.***
Equine therapy is another tool available for horse owners to keep their horses happy, comfortable and performing at their best. As an equine therapist, I look forward to being a part of the team supporting and providing the best possible care for your horse.
Each equine therapy session is tailored to meet the needs of the individual horse. I have pursued education in a variety of modalities, and so am able to draw from a variety of tools to find what works best for each issue. Your horse’s session may include massage, myofascial release, structural balancing, Photonic Red Light Therapy, applied kinesiology, aromatherapy, emotional healing using Bach Flower Remedies, energy work, and so on. Any one of these modalities is not considered better or more effective than the other. If an issue is thought of as a lock, any one or a combination of these modalities may be the key to opening that lock. A typical appointment lasts between one and two hours, depending on the individual and the issues present. Initial appointments may take longer, due to time taken doing assessments and figuring out what the horse responds to best.
Appointment time can be flexible.
My husband and I also have a mixed farm, so I am only available for a very limited number of appointments during the harvest season. Please contact me for availability.
If it is cold outside, somewhere warm to work is required. This is for your horse’s best interest as equine therapy, particularly massage, is not as effective when the muscles are cold. I also need to be able to feel the tissue, this is hard to do if I can't feel my hands.
