The School of Equine Massage and Rehabilitation Therapies


Tyrrell Riding Academy



Event Description

This course has been designed for the serious horse lover who is dedicated in bettering the life of the horse through an educated and caring touch. In this very intensive six-week program that runs Monday-Friday, students will learn:

The complete massage of the horse, the equine health check, horse handling techniques to bring together the mind of the horse and the therapist so that both are equal partners in moving forward in the heath care ideal. Horses have opinions, and knowledge of what ails them; we encourage this discussion so that both horse and human can work together to find the correct approach toward optimum healing. The Vertebral Realignment Course (equine chiropractic), saddle fit, lymphatic drainage, advanced assessments along with all of the manual manipulation solutions, advanced business acumen, (a vital part of this course as students are coached so that they are ready to begin their careers immediately), magnetic massage, 50+ stretches that are safe for both practitioner and horse, and so very much more!

Certification: Certified Advanced Equine Massage and Vertebral Realignment Therapist

This course comes with two full-colour manuals written by the teacher of the program.
