what to expect
A typical bodywork session lasts roughly 75 minutes and covers the horse from head to tail. Our first session will begin with getting to know your horse's history, current and past issues, current workload, any recent changes good or bad in your horse's life (such as workload, tack, schedule, feed, behavior, demeanor, etc.) and your goals.
An initial physical evaluation of your horse begins the bodywork session, which helps to highlight where the "current", more surface issues are. The actual bodywork itself addresses both these issues and delves into "older", much deeper issues.
Sessions can be characterized as quiet, gentle, yet incredibly effective. Horses really enjoy the bodywork and typically become very relaxed, some might even say blissful!
The work is done in the comfort of your horse's stall, but can also be done in an arena or even in the pasture if your horse is accustomed to 24/7 turnout. Wherever your horse is most comfortable is where we will work.
