Services & Rates

Massage can benefit horses of all ages and disciplines, from the retired trail horse to the upper level dressage athlete. A routine massage program can help alleviate muscle tension and soreness, prevent injury, and maintain overall health. 

A maintenance massage session is geared toward maintaining the comfort and health of a horse in regular work, a pleasure horse, or one who is retired/geriatric. Performance massage sessions are aimed at helping a horse who is transitioning between workloads or disciplines, increasing conditioning or campaigning through a show season. If your horse is recovering from an illness, injury or lameness, it is recommended that you discuss massage with your veterinarian prior to scheduling. Sessions may include a variety of modalities including trigger point therapy, stress point therapy, myofascial release (MFR), Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT), and acupressure.


The first session with your horse will last approximately 60-90 minutes and include an initial evaluation and assessment, where we will discuss your training goals, any concerns, health history, and evaluate movement. Follow up or regular sessions are approximately 45-60 minutes. 

A well fitting saddle is an important part of your horses's comfort and physical soundness. If you are unsure about the fit of your saddle, I am happy to help evaluate fit during a session. Also, if I come across any indication of poor fit, I will work with you to help you find a solution to keep your riding partner in well-fitting tack. 


Pre and post-event massage is also available for clients in a regular bodywork program.
