This 2-day weekend was incredible! It brings the DVD & Book alive. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn to take the 2-Day seminar. I have learned so much and had so much fun.
If you want to learn how to connect on a deeper level with horses. If you want to learn how to help your horse relax and release tension, this seminar is a must.
If you ride, lease or own a horse, learning to help your horse feel using the Masterson Method will be the best education for you and your horse’s relationship.
A great opportunity to learn about horses and yourself. It’s amazing how soft you can be to get results.
This workshop is a powerful and effective catapult into the Masterson world of bodywork. it’s a two day affair, one that is life changing.
I highly recommend this clinic to anyone who owns or works with horses. You will bring your connection with your horse to a higher level.
I came back for the weekend soooooo happy
The office staff was SUPER in helping me set this weekend up. Thank you. Please convey to Jim that Samantha (Walker) is a very talented instructor with a wonderful teaching style, who also easily establishes a rapport with the students. They loved her.
What I found most helpful: I began this course before I attended a weekend seminar. I feel this course helped me tremendously to further understand the methods taught in the book and the dvds. The videos in the home study course were more detailed on how to do each technique. I especially liked the Follow-Up videos to review what I had done during the actual hands-on practice of techniques. Definitely worth the money. And I like that I can keep coming back and using the course whenever I need it.
What I Experienced: I have worked the Masterson method on three horses so far. One was short striding on the rear end. I had worked on him 2x and then did a whole body session a third time after attending a weekend seminar. He wasn’t being ridden during this period. A few days after the third session he was ridden and was sound and taken to a show a couple days later. The rider said she had the best rides on him she had ever had and he wasn’t spooky at the show as he sometimes could be. This horse released a lot of tension in his face (I only had to put my hand on the bridge of his nose and he’d yawn) and he released a lot in his lower left leg during the bladder meridian technique. I was descending down his leg by hairs because he was yawning and blowing constantly.
Overall, I’ve found the techniques to work like magic and to work exactly as described in the books and dvd’s.
What I found most helpful: The combination of book/manual and lesson videos. I also like the introduction, go practice, and follow up format, and that there is no set due date or time in which we must complete a lesson or the course. And finally, Jim is very clear and open.
What I Experienced: I primarily used my pony to practice on, but also my husband’s horse (both mares). It was interesting to feel how different they are, and how the pony has a lot to say, and big releases, whereas the horse is much more introverted. The pony is also very clear that I am not to go on if she hasn’t finished releasing. Recently, she has started going into “MM mode” and releasing when I pick out her feet. I am finding it a good idea to do scapula releases and hind end from below before the trimmer comes. What I had thought was a behavior issue (grabbing a foot back) was actually a restriction. All in all, I am finding this fascinating, and I am looking forward to attending a weekend workshop this June in VT.
