What if he’s sore and I don’t know it? What if he’s not fit enough to do this activity with me? Maybe he’s not getting the right nutrients in his feed?
And with so many people with opinions, which often differ from each other, how are we supposed to know what the best thing is?
That’s why I became a horse massage therapist. Because I wanted to know, and I wanted to help others who feel the same way.
I am not a bullshit artist. I won’t tell you your horse is fine, simply because I don’t know what’s wrong. If I think there is something off and I can’t figure it out, I will tell you to get a vet, or an osteopath, or a physio or chiro. Or, I will tell you to leave it with me and I’ll see what I can find out from my equine massage community.
I am not a bullshit artist.
I also won’t tell you to book your horse in every two weeks from now until eternity either. I can tell you now, most horses don’t need a massage every 2 weeks. Depending on the level of work the horse is in, I suggest every 6-8 weeks, or every 10-12 weeks.
As the business grows, so does my knowledge.
Last year (2023) I completed a certificate in Tissue Mobilisation Techniques and this year I have begun studying an International Diploma of Equine Osteopathy. I believe there is always going to me more to learn, and my goal is to learn as much of it as possible, so that I can share it with you.
So, if you are like me and want to make sure you are doing everything in your power to keep your horse happy and healthy, send me a message to book in today.
