Equine Bodywork

The first step is “melding “. This is where we connect with the horse on a deeper level; a physical, emotional, and energetic level. When you are able connect with the horse at this level, you are able to move tissue at a deeper level with precision, allowing a deeper connection with the horse for better training, better relationship, and better riding. For it is inside the core of the horse, the very central aspect of the horse that moves the horse’s body, that makes the decisions to react, to blend, to let us in. 


Cranial/Sacral and Osteopathy are a noninvasive, highly effective approach that addresses the core causes of lameness, metabolic and emotional dysfunction. We also use Applied Kinesiology, Acupressure TCM, and Medical Intuition to resolve acute and chronic issues at their deepest level; thereby restoring normal function. Being able to unravel these physical and energetic restrictions, the secondary or compensatory holding patterns can easily be rebalanced.


Helping one healing is more than just “fixing what’s broke.” It’s intended to enhance the vitality of the whole horse to achieve greater impulsion, speed, suppleness, and a more eager companion. This is where we begin to see things happen; when the extraordinary results occur. It is also where the balance between yin and yang, left and right brain, science and intuition, logic and the heart, can dance.


The equine body is highly sophisticated, composed of many systems working as one. These systems include the circulatory, respiratory, neurology, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic, muscular-skeletal, and meridian interacting. If one system is in dysfunction it will affect the whole horse and create diseases.

Anyone with a profession a particular modality (e.g. chiropractic-spinal, acupuncture-meridian, massage-muscular/fascia) can and do affect a positive changes in the horse. These modalities, however, do not attend to the underlying cause of the dysfunction. Thus, the condition returns or develops into a more debilitating state. This is why is crucial to find and address the root cause.

This is where we are different. We first begin by addressing the horses’ nutritional needs by finding any underlying weaknesses in the body that need to be supported. Then we can begin our hands on work.
