WE KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE YOUR HORSE(S)
And if you're anything like us, you want to provide them the best life possible but you need help to take your skills to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works and what doesn't.
Now offering various learning options designed specifically for horses owners. Take an online course or attend a live clinic in manual or cranial therapy to increase your learning potential.
We can't wait to meet you!
WHY MANUAL THERAPY?
Hands-on therapy is an effective treatment modality aimed at improving flexibility, mobility, circulation, joint range of motion, neurological function, digestion, and even proprioception.
By learning a basic anatomical foundation alongside specific manual techniques, you will be able to help your horse recover from training more efficiently, rehabilitate through injury, and maintain mobility well into their later years.
Does this sound good to you?
"These courses are absolutely life changing not only for me but also my horse and our relationship."
To gain such important knowledge in regards to my horse's anatomy and how to offer therapeutic intervention is the ultimate gift I could give him. I highly recommend that all horse owners learn these monumental skills, knowledge, and modalities.

IF TRAVEL ISN'T AN OPTION, WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED
Learn from the comfort of your own home by taking our signature online course Introduction to Manual Therapy.
Here we explore theory and application of manual techniques for massage, myofascial release, joint mobility, and motor control. Also included is basic gait evaluation, assessment, and much more!
DIP YOUR TOES IN A MINI COURSE
The diaphragm is arguably the most important muscle in the horse's body yet often overlooked as primary. Dysfunction in the diaphragm is one of the leading causes of lower back pain and contributes to restriction in breathing and circulation especially in the ridden horse!
This online mini-course will guide you through basic anatomy and physiology of the diaphragm including an assessment protocol and simple techniques that anyone can learn.
CRANIAL THERAPY FOR HORSE OWNERS
Would you like to improve the energy levels, focus, coordination of your equine partner, and increase relaxation in and out of the saddle?
In this two-day clinic for horse owners, we explore the essentials of the craniosacral system, build a basic anatomical foundation of the connective tissue (fascia, dura), specific cranial bones, sacrum, TMJ, and other important structures. We share with you easy-to-learn techniques which facilitate lasting change for your horse. This course is open to all and includes a live webinar with your instructors Elisse Miki and Alexa Linton.
