We all know about the connection shared between horse and rider. Wouldn't it be wonderful to optimize your horse's performance and your riding experience? Whether it's for pleasure or competition, the quality of your experience depends on how you both feel. Being the intuitive animals that they are, horse's respond to any discomfort you might have and communicate that via their behavior.
What separates me from my peers is not only my first hand experience of recovering from a traumatic injury, but my advanced certification in Medical Massage for my human practice. I have been dedicated to helping people manage their physical challenges, which more often than not include pain and range of motion issues. These skills are easily transferable when I deal with my equine clients also. Due to the similar anatomy my advanced human massage training easily gives me the edge over other equine therapists.
When it comes to The Masterson Method®, I completed the weekend course Oct 17th-18th 2009 and I was hooked. I actually completed the whole process May 20, 2011 for the MMCP.
What most people don’t know is that I had no horse experience prior to starting my MMCP journey and since then I have worked in multiple A Level/FEI Horse Shows including but not limited to the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida for four seasons with Bill Stanton.
After that I focused on building my business at my home base in Fletcher, North Carolina. At one point aside from traveling up and down the East Coast I worked with horses throughout my entire state.
Currently I am retired BUT still working with previous clients and at an Eventing barn located in Huntersville, NC. I have a hard time keeping my hands off horses and in fact I have worked on over 10,000 horses to date and hope to work on 10,000 more!
As a Medical Massage Therapist for people and a Masterson Method® Practitioner, allow me to customize a plan to enhance the synergy between you and your equine partner.
