Why Bodywork?



Equine bodywork - an intrinsic aspect of best horse care practices - saves time & money.  Regular training, conformational challenges, tack, and habitual or compensatory postures contribute to wear and tear on equine athletes & pleasure horses.

A tight muscle cannot get stronger.  Relaxation and suppleness are the keys to enhanced performance.

"Regardless of the type of activity...the physics of motion are the same... the problems that develop from over-stress will be the same.  Tightened or shortened muscles increase the amount of stress."   *J. Meagher
