Seeking symmetry and suppleness

Equine Bodywork Initial consultation

Posture, conformation and movement analysis.

Discussion of goals and what you are looking to improve through massage.

Aim to see these aspects as well as lifestyle and workload to identify where problems may occur further down the line. Also to try and address minor issues early on before they can impact on training or competition

  • Reluctance to go forwards
  • Tense erratic behaviour or unusually spooky
  • Still sore after tack refitted
  • Tetchiness being brushed or tacked up

Prior to first seeing your horse, I will ask you to discuss with your vet whether they approve of your horse having an Equine Bodywork treatment. I am happy to speak to them myself if they would like to know more about it.
