Equine Massage CPD for Horse Owners

Equine Massage Course for Horse Owners, with Equine Massage Training UK

Cost £120 for the day

This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn some vital massage skills to help you and your equine partner.

Equine Massage Training UK has been dedicated to educating students to the highest standards in Equine Massage for many years and this course for horse owners is no exception. Massage is an ancient art that is well known to help alleviate muscle soreness. Alongside this it increases circulation, aids muscles healing, increases lymphatic drainage and enhances the overall quality and stride length of your horses’ gait. Massage is equally important for the psychological health of the horse. We will cover topics of contraindications of massage and learning how to read your horse when massaging

Our Teacher Rosie Pearson, trained with EMT herself and is now part of our team. She runs her own successful massage practice, Equine Symmetry Southwest, based in North Cornwall where she treats some of top horses around the area helping to keep her clients and equine partners in tip top shape. Rosie is looking forward to passing some of her knowledge on to owners looking to increase their knowledge within this field.
