The Masterson Method
Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork
The Masterson Method techniques are a game-changer for anyone who owns, competes or handles a horse:
Working with the horse and not on the horse allows the horse to release tension in essential core muscles, and in the muscles of key junctions of the body that affect movement and performance.
Improvement in Movement and Performance
Aggressive, “busy,” or nervous behaviour will often change when deep physical discomfort is relieved. This discomfort often resides in spinal and postural muscles of the horse. In some cases, the change can be drastic, especially when it has been building for years. Often, owners who have relied on the use of calming drugs or supplements, find them unnecessary when they help their horses release tension.
Training and Behaviour – a Happier and More Cooperative Horse
When horses understand that you are responding to what they are telling you, an instant level of trust develops that can transform the relationship with your horse. The reward of helping the horse release tension on this level can be significant.
It doesn’t matter what our discipline or relationship with our horse is; the horse is our partner and we should be constantly asking ourselves and our horses, what we can do to improve that relationship.
