Learn Bodywork for Horses

I love offering workshops for horse people who want to learn some bodywork strokes to use with their horse(s) in a friendly environment of respect for both horse and human. Clinics incorporate anatomy, bodywork strokes, horse body language, and mindfulness with hands on practice. The Intro will give you a taste, and the follow on courses include more in depth material and more practice time. See the descriptions below.

Intro to Bodywork for Horses

Your horse wants you to take this workshop!

First, we’ll learn about the wonders of fascia (aka connective tissue), what happens to it, 4 ways to care for fascia, and the benefits of releasing restrictions in fascia for your horse’s movement, mood, and health. Then we’ll spend most of our time learning several basic, effective bodywork strokes to support your horse’s well being with time to practice on horses who already like being massaged. Be prepared for 5-hours of fun, hands on learning. Limited to 8 participants.

More Bodywork for Horses clinics

Besides the popular Intro to Bodywork for Horses, I offer clinics and practice sessions in:

Equine Structural Integration – learn to do a full session with (or without) your own horse.

Learning to Speak Horse – understanding equine body language enhances your training and connection with them.

Personal Energy & Your Horse – horses don’t care what you know, they care how it feels when you stand with them. Learn what questions to ask yourself before you step into a horse’s personal space. Your horse will thank you!
