How Karen can help your horse...

Equine Therapies
Karen is a qualified Equine Bodyworker living in Portugal.  She has vast experience working with horses from a variety of disciplines, from school horses to international Grand Prix.
Having also spent 3 years studying at The Vluggen Institute for Equine Osteopathy in Germany, Karen's emphasis is on a 'whole' horse approach. This enables her to identify issues  often missed by other professionals.  Focus is on identifying the underlying 'cause' of an issue, which if left unaddressed, will eventually affect the rest of the body, which includes:  
  • Parietal (musculo-skeletal) 
  • Craniosacral (skull and sacrum connection)
  • Visceral (organ) 
Karen works closely with veterinarians, referred by them, and in referring clients to them for follow-up investigations such as x-rays.
However, many owners recognise when their horse isn't quite right, and it is at this stage when most clients contact her, before any veterinary treatment is necessary.   
Saddle Fitting

As an approved Saddle Company fitter, Karen has been trained in:


  • checking saddle fit

  • templating the horse for a made to fit saddle

  • adjusting the saddle on site, via a hydraulic machine

  • regulating and adjusting flocking on site
