Why work with the equine spine? The spine is the framework upon which all limbs, ligaments, muscle and fascia hang. We connect spine-to-spine with the horse when we ride. Bone is the most dense and oldest of body tissue. Bring relief to the spine and the rest of the body will change.

This class is for the owner & horse professional who seeks some tools for maintaining their own horses’ health and/or sustainable ways to assist in the healing of horses. Equine Body Balance balances the horse’s systems and allows for better overall functionality.

Equine Body Balance™ is non-force, based on the finding that the body will shift toward greater health and functionality if “met” where it is. This bodywork modality is deeply effective in engaging the body’s innate self-corrective response. It is Informed by Equine Ortho-Bionomy™ and Equine Positional Release.™
