"Whole Horse Evaluation" . . . because I care

. . . what does that mean?

 

Whether you are an Owner, a Trainer, an Equine Professional...we can all find ways to help our horses' lives improve, no matter how small or minor it may seem.  Would you agree?

 

This is an optional Specialty Service and is complimentary with a paid Equine Massage Session (opt IN by request)

More than "just an Equine Massage Therapist", I strive to go above and beyond your expectations by incorporating ALL aspects of your horse's life into my equation as it pertains to healthy muscle, great overall body function, desired behavior, optimum performance and the horse's overall mental and physical well-being. . .  I truly care about your horse in every way.

 

With your horse's best interest in mind, my observations are based off of my 40+ years of acquired experience and knowledge in the equine industry.  More specifically, being brought up around show barns and having been trained/coached and worked under some of the best Trainers in the Industry, allowing me to appreciate and  incorporate the finest of details into my horse care management techniques.  It is within recognizing and practicing such details where I find horses to be at their very best!

Evaluation + Massage + Optional Service = FREE with the purchase of 1 Equine Massage Session at normal price ($80)

HOW the Evaluation works (approximately a 3 hour initial session):

1)

2)

​~ Phone Consultation ~ a few days prior to the scheduled appointment, I'll ask a series of questions about your horse and take notes.  This can take up to 20 minutes on the phone.

~ Meeting you and your horse ~ when I arrive at your barn, you can show me around...everything from your horse's stall and turnout area, round pen or ground work area, the arena, feed room, tack room, grooming supplies, etc., all the while talking with you to learn and understand more about your horse first-hand.

3)

~ Equine Body Assessment ~ I thoroughly look your horse over and make notes on his/her weight, confirmation, balance and quality of muscle, coat condition, disposition, etc.  This is especially useful information for tracking purposes as we work together towards your horse's progress.

4)

~ Tack fitting assessment ~ (saddle & bit/bridle), I share with you helpful tack placement tips during the tack fitting assessment. 

** Tack issues have been the #1 issue I notice in my client's horses causing many problems in the horse's body, including poorly designed saddles, improper placement of the saddle and bits that are not a good fit, have sharp edges and are broken.

5)

~ Full body hands-on massage.  During this phase, you are more than welcome to stay during the massage so that I can share my observations with you while in the moment, or you can return at the end of the massage for me to share with you my findings during the massage and invite you to be a part of the final stretching exercises.

6)

Full, comprehensive report ~ This report will be tailored to your horse for you to keep for your own records, emailed to you in the form of a PDF.  All of my observations will be clearly defined along with my best tips, suggestions and recommendations.

Optional Service:

Additionally, you may request the following FREE as part of the initial Evaluation (pick any or all):

A Handling Lesson (helps your horse learn better manners, respect and handle various situations)

A Ground Work Lesson (handling, lungeing or both)

A Grooming Lesson

A Riding Lesson

A Bathing Lesson

A Clipping Lesson

A Trailer Loading Practice Session

. . . OR, if you have anything else you would like help with concerning your horse, just let me know

The additional service can be performed the day of the Evaluation, or at another time.

** A Whole Horse Therapy session can achieve IMMEDIATE & AMAZING RESULTS~! **

Below is a perfect example of what immediate results can look like . . .

 

In this example, a client dedicated to helping her horse that she had rescued, tried suggestions that I had included in my report since she opted IN for me to include as much information and advice I could offer. 

When following up with her after 2 1/2 weeks, I was incredibly proud and happy of the improvements this sweet horse had already made!

Are you willing to OPT IN?

 

Opting IN means to me that you are willing to be open minded to outside observation, allowing me to fully observe everything regarding your horse's life.  This will allow me to ultimately offer my best advice on products & information and send you links to resources in support of my observations.

It's incredibly important to me that you know and understand my purpose is to advocate for the horse first, and it doesn't matter who you are regarding your name, status or title in the Equestrian World . . . What matters is that we both think collaboratively on behalf of your horse. NOTE:  Understandably, if you feel you might take my observations personally then this service may not be the right choice for you.

 

The initial Evaluation is a one-time service.  After the initial session, you may request a follow up or continue with any of my other services such as Riding Lessons, Coaching at Shows, Horse Training, Schooling Rides, Behavioral Reformation and more.
