Basics of Equine Massage Therapy Workshop

"The course was very informative, easy to follow, and the instructor was fabulous. The school is beautiful and makes for a very fun course."


This course utilizes both theory-based knowledge training and hands-on massage for your horse. Some prior knowledge of equine anatomy will assist learners to gain the maximum knowledge & benefit from this course, however it is not required. This course will give horse owners the ability to:

  • Better understand what the body language of your horse is telling you about their comfort level
  • Recognize muscle soreness or dysfunction
  • Provide comfort for sore/stiff muscles and related soft tissue stress
  • Improve the ability of your horse to return to work sooner after injury or exertion
  • Recognize when it is time to contact your equine health professional
