Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork: Advanced 5-Day Course

The Advanced 5-Day is set up a little differently then the Beyond Horse Massage Seminar-Workshop. On the Advanced 5-Day course we will be carpooling each day to a different performance-based barn. Rarely, do we go back to the same barn twice. You will be receiving a list of barns closer to the start of the course.


Your registration for the Advanced 5-Day is NOT complete until you have taken the Anatomy and Horsemanship quizzes.  You may take the quizzes repeatedly until you get the minimum 90% score. These quizzes are to help us gauge your proficiency and reassure us that you will be safe in the stalls. Click on the link below to begin.  Look for the Horsemanship Quiz link and the Basic Anatomy Quiz link on the right-hand side of the page. Login is not required to access these quizzes but you do need to type in your name on the individual quizzes and the location of your course so that we will receive your scores.



We try and stay at the same hotel for carpooling purposes. As soon as the course is confirmed you will receive an email from our office that will include the host hotel information for you to make your reservations there. If there is a chain of hotels you prefer, or if you live close to the barn locations, you are welcome to meet us at the barns each day.  You will receive more details on the course via emails from our office when it gets a little closer to the date. Please make sure that you can receive emails from

We have a local host for the course, and that person will handle any specific logistical questions pertaining to your stay. We will be sending all this information once the course registration is closed.


Please do NOT book your flight until you receive confirmation from our office that we have reached our minimum number of participants and we can go forward with the course. If you book your flight BEFORE receiving confirmation that the course will take place, we will not be held responsible for any fees incurred on cancelling your flight.
