Equine Performance Bodywork
Time for Your Pet
Carol is a certified Masterson Method Practitioner (MMCP). Since starting the program, it has enabled her to approach horse training and instruction from a whole new perspective. It has improved her eye on the ground, as well as her feel in the saddle for issues and limitations that need to be addressed with bodywork. Horses are such stoic creatures and do not complain when they are hurting, and many times we do not fully understand why we are having training issues.
The Masterson Method® is an integrated, multi-modality method of equine massage. It is a unique, interactive method of equine massage in which you learn to recognize and use the responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. In contrast to most traditional modalities, it enables the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension. It is something you do with the horse, rather than to the horse. This participation and interaction are what makes the method fascinating for those who use it. In fact, if you do not allow the horse to participate, it does not work!
