HOLISTIC BODY WORK

Equine Alternative Therapy

 

Holistic equine training can help deepen the bond between horse and rider. 

Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding  is all soft work but very very effective in correcting gait abnormalities, saddle fitting issues, and mysterious lameness issues. As well as helping the horse to get more wind and thus more stamina as the body can take in more oxygen as well as having more drive and push from the hind end. Soft gentle moves to manually release and keep the skeleton in proper form and function is where we start thus helping the body to load the joints and hoof correctly. Also deep muscle unwinding from the inside out has the horse presenting a body 2″ taller, 4″ longer and they look as if they have gained 20 pounds after a 1 hour session. As well, as helping to balance Chakras and Acupressure Meridians. The key is to release the 1st rib which is out in most foals by age 7 months.  This creates the high/low syndrome in front hooves. Most professional modalities and holistic equine training courses do not address these issues so then you are always working on the ‘symptom’ and not the cause which is why the chiropractic issues come back.   The majority of training and behavioural issues are caused by pain issues in the horses body that are easily corrected. This results in a horse that is unwilling to switch leads, girthy or is a cold backed horse, unable to engage its hind end.

These sessions are perfect for any horse regardless of age, breed or discipline and will help to keep them healthy and sound.

I work closely with the owner and welcome them throughout a session.  When the session is finished we go through the findings together, deciding what the next course of action is.  Does your horse need further intensive treatments, maintenance or he is good to go.  I go through the recommended yoga stretches to be worked on by the owner/rider in between sessions.

We’re not trying to sell you on our sessions. Instead, here are some clients that will do the hard work for us!

I was desperately looking for rehabilitation for my horse who was very sick and was losing hope he would ever be well again! Our rides were getting increasingly more difficult and I thought I would have to stop riding until we had a Body Work session with Cindy. He is now back to his old self and we are enjoying our rides again.
I highly recommend Cindy and Body Works!
