What is Your Horse’s “Best Self”?

Optimizing wellness and performance

 

Since 2007, I have been serving horses and their owners in resolving and preventing performance issues. You may have noticed your horse short-stepping, not taking a lead, bucking, having a change in attitude or behavior, grinding teeth, refusing jumps, etc.

Once health issues are ruled out by a veterinarian, you may find yourself puzzled about the cause of the performance issue. The causes are often—but not always—surprisingly simple to solve. A detailed plan to address the issue will help you help your horse.

To support your horse by getting to the root of the problem, we will look at the primary causes of performance and behavior challenges.

Bodywork


Equine bodywork (beyond ‘horse massage’) can be a very effective tool to address tension and restriction that causes discomfort and performance issues. My method of choice is the Masterson Method®, combined with other bodywork techniques and guided exercises.

This approach—the Path to Performance™—is suitable for any horse in any discipline. Learn exercises to relax, supple, and strengthen your horse on the ground and on the longe line.
