The information and skills learned in the workshop will be invaluable to the health and well being and success of my race horses.
I just returned from a Masterson Method Weekend Seminar taught by Coralie Hughes. This seminar not only exceeded my expectations, but also significantly increased my working knowledge of the Masterson Method. Prior to attending the seminar, I watched Jim’s DVD and was having success with my horses. Jim’ DVD is great; however, it cannot give you what the seminar provides. Hands on instruction and critique! Coralie did a great job teaching the method! She emphasized that we were facilitators and the horse does the work, be soft, pressure and release! Since returning home with my new found knowledge, my results have been truly amazing! My horses are so much more relaxed and soft when I’m riding them. If you have only watched the DVD and/or read the book, I highly recommend that you attend the Weekend Seminar – you will not regret it and your horse will definitely benefit. Thanks Jim for sharing the Masterson Method and Coralie for your excellent instruction and guidance!
It’s a very informative workshop which will give you the tools and skills to improve the performance and well being of your own horse or horses you work with. Very easy to apply
This workshop very effectively introduces the Masterson Method and gives you a practical hands on learning opportunity. I truly feel I can begin using the method to help my horses right away.
I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend a Jim Masterson 2 Day Seminar in Rhode Island. To put it plainly, it was AWESOME!!!!! As a Certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist working full time in the New England area, I was looking to enhance the skill set that I currently have by adding Jim’s technique’s to my own. After absorbing Jim’s “Equine Massage for Performance Horses” DVD prior to the seminar, I had several specific questions I needed answered regarding a few of the techniques. Jim answered these questions and so much more over the intensive two days of lecture and hands-on work. His delivery was fun, nicely paced and professional from beginning to end. Also, we had the added benefit of a 2nd Co-Instructor in Jim’s protege Marie Riley to add to our educational experience. She was knowledgeable, highly skilled and a pleasure to work with. I received exactly what I was looking for from this seminar. When I returned to my regular client schedule on Monday the improvement in my level of service was immediately noticable to me and especially to my equine clients. With every session I have become that much more seasoned with my freshly enhanced skill set and my horses couldn’t be happier. Regardless if you are currently a working professional or a lay horse-person looking to increase your knowledge for your own horses, I highly recommend investing your time and energy in THE MASTERSON METHOD!!!!!
I love having more tools to use in my sessions. The techniques I learned here are an excellent base for any horse owner or body worker.
I found the clinic to be one of the best I’ve ever attended. The material was presented in a straightforward, clear manner, easy for a layperson to understand. I was totally fascinated. It has turned me from a skeptical Brit into a real believer in the “alternative.” It was wonderful to watch an expert get results but to find that I too could get results was even more exciting.
Just wanted to thank each one of you for a great weekend. What a wonderful experience!! I am still processing all of the information. Every one of you made us all feel very welcome, comfortable with our abilities and not afraid to make mistakes. What a refreshing attitude that there is a gentler way to help a horse heal than the traditional method of massage. This is exactly what I had been hoping to find. I learned a great deal and am looking forward to the next course. And what better place to learn the Masterson Method than right in the middle of horse country! The staff at Windy Meadows was more than accommodating, not only with the use of their barn and providing housing, but also allowing us all to practice on their magnificent horses! Great teachers, great program, great fellowship, great horses….. doesn’t get any better than that!
Having the Masterson Method in my tool chest of ‘must have knowledge’ I now consider a MUST! This clinic made me aware of how our beautiful, eager to please horses can often suffer in silence, as is their nature. I now can recognize and eliminate, or prevent these aches and pains from becoming chronic in most cases with this new bodywork method. If I can’t, I know where to go to address the problem. It is, BY FAR, the best thing I have have done for not only my horse and others, but for my peace of mind. Too often, I have felt like I was ‘feeling around in the dark’ looking for solutions when my horse was ‘off’. Those days are over!
I attended one of Jim’s weekend seminars, and I have to say that I found it be fantastic. While I own, ride and breed (and will train) horses, I was not coming from an existing equine therapeutic background or didn’t have a degree in equine science. Jim’s way of teaching and instruction was very easy to understand and follow. Everything was explained in simple terms that anybody no matter what level of experience, can understand. Jim developed his technique from observations and his experience of working with horses. I think his principle is what works is real and as a result the education provided combines facets of different equine theraputic disciplines. The results of the course on the horses worked on was simply amazing. The improvement of flexibility and mobility in the horses was profound. I would advise anybody horse owner or trainer attend one of Jim’s courses.
