Hi, I’m Janet and I live in High River, AB which is home to the TV series Heartland! I received my human massage certification 25 years ago and used it on and off while working in the film industry. I did not grow up with horses but always found a way to be around them, like the one summer when I got my grooms card for the thoroughbred racing season in Calgary. Fast forward to 11 years ago when I saw Cowboy Mounted Shooting and decided what the heck, “Let’s buy a horse and some guns!”. One of my horses was a troubled soul and the “teacher horse”. He is the reason why I searched out ways to connect with him. The Masterson Method® allowed me to gain his trust and helped me soften as a rider.
I have been volunteering with Journeys Therapeutic Riding Society for 7 years and assisting at the Masterson clinics in Calgary and Kelowna for the past few years. I really enjoy sharing The Masterson Method with my clients and anyone who will listen, including the HORSE! I travel throughout southern and central Alberta. I hope to become an instructor as I believe everyone can learn to connect to their horse on a deeper level.
