Gentle Hands Horse Massage

equine sports massage therapy

I massage the equine athlete who needs relief from pain, and work with

the open-minded owners who wants his or her horse to perform to its fullest potential and WIN!!!

Did you know that 60% of your horses total body weight is skeletal muscle?

Skeletal muscle is the system responsible for motion.

Thru the non-invasive technique of sports massage therapy, the performance of the equine athlete can be improved by relieving tension and muscle spasms, and increasing circulation and range of motion.

Is your horse having any of these problems?

  • Refusing or resisting leads
  • Head and neck discomfort
  • Shortened strides
  • Head tossing
  • “Off” for no apparent reason
  • Girthing problems
  • Sore back
  • Shoulder & hip lameness
  • Coordination problems
  • Improper tracking

If so, then your horse will benefit from the non-invasive technique of sports massage therapy.

What are the benefits of equine massage, you ask.

  • Improves circulation
  • Relieves tension
  • Relaxes muscle spasms
  • Hastens the elimination of wastes and toxic debris
  • Promotes healing by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles
  • Enhances muscle tone
  • Increases range of motion
  • Generally improves the disposition of the horse

Give your equine athlete the “competitive edge.”

Happy Riding Training Intensive

carolyn-morris-happy-ridingTraining horses and people to collaborate in a respectfully pleasant partnership by bridging the communication gap to prosper in a fully enjoyable relationship, in the barn, round pen, arena, and trail.

Does your horse respond to your cues without the slightest hesitation?

Effectively communicating to a horse in a constructive manner is the foundation for a relationship of synergy.

By consistent and deliberate training of the fundamentals your horse will respect you.

Respect is the key element to establish right from the beginning.  A respectful horse is a happy horse.

Do you respond to your horses cues? Yes horses give us cues, little behavior cues that tell us what they are thinking.  If we do not notice these cues and correct the horse, then it will appear that the horse exploded in volatile behavior for no apparent reason.  But in reality the horse was telling us all along what it was about to do.

Teaching the horse fundamental horsemanship and being consistent will avoid many issues in the barn, the round pen, arena, and the trail.


Happy Riding,
Carolyn Morris — ESMT
