Equine bodywork is suitable for all horses but particularly those showing any of the following conditions:
Problems with the horse's gait, not tracking up, stiffness to one side
Cold backed, resisting work, reluctance to canter on one rein
Headshy or head shaking
Tendon injury or ligament damage
Muscle atrophy (wastage) or uneven muscling
Reduced level of performance or inability to bend
Tail swishing or holding it to one side
An equine bodywork session normally takes about 1 hour 20 minutes. A standard saddle fit assessment normally forms part of an equine bodywork session.
There is usually an immediate, notable improvement in the horse's condition after a single session, such as an increased range of motion, improved conformation or a shine to their coat due to increased bloodflow.
This will depend upon the horse's condition, but the best results are normally achieved after 2 or 3 sessions, 3 weeks apart.
A horse can be treated the week of a competition providing it is already on a maintenance schedule. Pre and Post Competition sessions can also be arranged at the competition venue.
Consultations are a fixed rate and last up to 1.5 hours

“I really felt a difference in the canter, felt like he was able to "sit" a lot more, so I had a feeling of him lowering his hips under him which I dont normally get. ...for the first time I felt him use his hindquarters..”
"Today I walked my horse in hand as recommended, but he started to trot and I tried to calm and then to step back. But then he trotted again and then I was fascinated with him ... his feet lifted and advanced like I had never seen. I was delighted ... thank you Karen"
“My horses are much more responsive to the aids after Karen has worked on them, and much more willing to do what I ask of them.”
“You're giving him his life back, Karen! Unbelievable good job!!!”
