This course teaches more than just the techniques for massaging the superficial muscles of the horse. It is designed to provide students with the knowledge to see the "whole horse"-movement and muscular development, injuries allied to the work performed, outside factors that affect comfort, as well as massage techniques and the actual massage.
Kathy Downs, 2006 USEF Endurance Team: "When I met Betty I had a 6 year old Arab gelding that was off the track and I had been trying to turn him into an endurance horse. After 2 frustrating years working with this horse the best he could do was an unhappy shuffle down the trail. Within 6 months Betty was able to release this horse's potential. He has just successfully completed the Biltmore 100 mile endurance in the top 10.
