Students get so much from this 3 day course, that offers plenty of hands-on practical experience, specimens, multimedia illustrations & video clips. While it is billed as an Introduction Equine Massage & Bodywork course you will find that it offers more information than many basic massage workshops currently available. Correct body mechanics & safe bodywork techniques are also strongly emphasised throughout this course - a skill that cannot be learnt online.

Course Outline

​All of the following topics are included in this class:

  • Locating the surface anatomy

  • Muscles addressed during the session

  • Common areas of stress 

  • Encouraging communication and interaction in sessions

  • Differentiating between normal and pain responses

  • Massage and body work techniques

  • Stretching

  • Correct and effective body mechanics

  • Improving your eye for gait & conformation assessment

Why this course is perfect for so many individuals: 

  • Horse owners & riders will benefit not only by learning the techniques, but how to utilise bodywork as a regular assessment of their horse's condition.

  • Anyone considering working professionally in the field of equine body work will get an in-depth overview as to what is really involved in working in this field. Although the course is not required to participate in our Equinology Equine Body Worker Certification courses, it will prove a beneficial head start to if you continue onto the certification course.

  • Instructors & trainers will find that these techniques will help horses in their care, especially as these horses advance in their training.

  • Saddle fitters, trimmers & farriers will be able to release some of the restrictions that alter the horse's posture, prior to fitting a different saddle, trimming or shoeing. 


 Students must be comfortable handling horses and picking up the limbs.
