Here is some lateral rocking which he wanted to show you from several angles. (Please note, I do not regularly swish horses’ tails to get their attention. ☺️I know him very well and … Continue reading William
This girl is such a sweetheart and has beautiful manners. She was wary of bodywork at first but you can tell from this video that changed quickly. Today was the second time I worked on her. She is a big fan of telling me when she is ready to get back to the bodywork after … Continue reading Mira

It was a cold day at the barn! Tigger had some nice releases. He tends to hold his tension in his very strong front end so lateral cervical flexion is difficult for him. He enjoyed light work on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
In this session I continue using the Bladder Meridian Technique on William. Now that he is accustomed to the technique I find he lets go of tension sooner than he did when he was still figuring out what I was doing. I usually do the entire scan twice because I find the horses I am … Continue reading William – January 9
