What to Expect

An Equine Massage Therapist usually comes to your barn, although some people will bring their horse to the therapist. I prefer going to the client's barn because it keeps stress to a minimum for the horse.

For a first time visit the therapist will perform a pre-massage evaluation. This helps the therapist determine where major sore areas exist so she can work accordingly.

The massage is usually performed in an open area to reduce chances of an accident. The horse is held by the therapist's helper or by the owner while the massage is done. The massage itself can last 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Pre and post even Sports Massage can be done in a shorter period of time.

If your horse has suffered an injury, please consult your veterinarian for an evaluation before any massage is performed. I like to work in conjunction with veterinarians to obtain the best results for your horse.
