Taz is owned by the lovely Cathy Smith. After being used as a demo horse at an Intelligent Horsemanship clinic, a lot of issues were revealed and Cathy learnt ET in order to help Taz become much more comfortable in his body.
This is a report from Equine Touch student Lauren Moss. As part of Equine Touch training, all students complete over 120 hours of hands on time on horses perfecting their technique through a series of case studies. This particular horse, Rosie, benefited greatly from Equine Touch and we also include comments from her owner, Karen.
Lemur was a very nervous, anxious mare when I met her and the owner said she had always been very nervy around people, quite highly strung and not the relaxed type. She had a lot of physical issues and this is a fascinating case study about how Equine Touch helps both the body and the mind.
When Banal was about 6 he developed behaviour problems, he became sticky, unwilling to go forward, or up and down hills and then he began to rear. His muscles and soft tissue became compromised and with that he was unwilling to track up…. but Equine Touch offered a lifeline and he is now pain free and loves to hack out and explore!
When Cracker was at a point when euthanasia was being considered, her wonderful owner went off to learn Equine Touch: “I have now completed my level 2 training and am so pleased to be able to support Cracker who lets me know quite clearly what she will and will not accept. She loves her back being treated and given that I am just over 5 feet tall and she is at least 16.3 she will tilt her back towards me to help me help her!.”
