Putting It All Together

Jim’s goal was to develop an equine massage school that would provide a systematic method that would make a difference in the horse, make a difference for the owner and trainer, and to make a difference in equine therapist’s business. It’s all about results. If you can get an improvement in performance, movement and comfort in the horse, they’ll call you back.

Horses that serve in equine-assisted learning or therapy programs can be challenged in different ways than performance horses, both physically and psychologically. This application of The Masterson Method is focused entirely on these horses and their needs.
