Horses have been in my life since 1984 in a variety of ways throughout the years - I have boarded horses at stables and have cared for them at home. I competed in the hunter and jumper A circuit (Western Canada) at 1.10m. I have trained my own horses - one off the track and one hombred Connemara. In the 1980/90s we had a Connemara breeding program. I have introduced many children to horse care and horseback riding. And now I am an adult amateur rider and equine massage therapist.
Horses give us so much and it is wonderful to give back to them in this way. They benefit greatly from the moments of relaxation and tension relief that they get from massage as displayed by their lowered head and gentle sighs. The increased performance and quicker recovery times after injury are just some of the benefits of equine massage and is a great way to take care of our equine partners.
