Hosting a Beyond Horse Massage Weekend

Just Got Easier!

The Masterson Method Seminar-Workshops are tailored to the needs of horse owners, trainers, equine bodyworkers and therapists who would like to learn the basics of The Masterson Method® Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork.

In these hands-on seminar-workshops you will learn to visually recognize the horse’s responses to your touch, and to find and release accumulated stress in key junctions of the body that most affect performance.

Basic Requirements:

  • 12 – 14 non-therapy horses.  Horses must be in good condition, have good stable manners, and be available with a nylon or leather halter and lead. 1/2 of the horses will be used on Sunday as fresh horses for students to work on.  Pregnant mares, stallions, therapy horses, and horses under the supervision of a veterinarian are not a good match for this workshop.
  • 6 – 7 stall spaces, individual pole paddocks or a large covered arena.
  • Demonstration Area.  Can be a covered arena, or a stall – no smaller than 12×12 preferably enclosed on two or three sides such as a wash stall, large aisle or grooming stall.
  • Lunch Area. A room or an area in the barn big enough for people to sit and eat lunch.
  • 12 – 14 chairs:  One chair per person (or hay bales to sit on for students during the demonstrations)
  • Be willing to pick up our instructor at the airport and deliver them back to the airport after the seminar.
  • Help spread the word to potential attendees – we confirm a seminar after the minimum number of students have registered.  It typically takes around 4 months to fill.
