Home study distance learning courses in equine healing massage therapy and equine sports massage

Equine Holistic Training and Therapy was formed in 2006 by the renowned and acclaimed equine therapist, Jilly Tanton and delivers to a worldwide audience. We are driven by our ethos of improving the combined health and relationships we have with our equine companions through a system of sympathetic holistic education and understanding.

Despite claims by other educational organisations, we can say hand on heart that we were the first training provider in the UK to offer a genuine "holistic" equine therapy study pathway, with a passionate focus on empowering all our students to consider the "whole" horse throughout their learning experience and onwards into their career. With this at the fore, our equine training school has gone from strength-to-strength. This is because of the progressive world we live in in which there is a continued growing urgency for a holistic approach to our lives and the relationships which we have with those around us and the environment we all share. Students and clients alike of Equine Holistic Training can expect to improve not only their knowledge of the incredible inner and outer worlds of the horse, but they will also be taken on a progressive journey of self-improvement and self-discovery within themselves. The effects of their new knowledge will be far reaching, making the world a better place one person and horse at a time.

This video demonstrates 2 of the traditional equine massage techniques: effleurage - warming up the muscles prior to the application of the wringing technique which stimulates the circulation. Observe how my mare responds with her ears, eyes softening and increasingly droopy lower lip !

The horse's brain accepts posture, balance, locomotion and muscular tension as normal, thus continuing to order its negative movement...

When ordered from the brain through the neural system, the integrated workings of the skeletal, ligament, tendon and muscular systems unite, to create the horse's movement. However, the brain does not recognise whether the executed movement is positive and correct, negative, ineffective or self damaging. So why does the horse's brain accept negative and damaging movement? because mother nature has not yet evolved to counteract the very unnatural act of riding the horse in the ways that we do.
Lateral movement, hind limb engagement, creating a light forehand, tracking up, extending the strides and jumping are all unnatural actions, although the horse has the ability to perform these actions so that in the wild he may escape from danger. However, Mother Nature did not incorporate the inclusion tack and rider into these adapted movements.

When treating the horse with both or either equine healing massage and equine sports massage therapy, its powerful effects do not remain confined within the horses muscular system. Its benefits are listed above left.

I am a Registered Equine Massage Therapist. I work within my duty of care at all times. My area of expertise is the horses muscular system and its corresponding physiological effects. I have been trained to evaluate, locate and treat muscles and muscular related conditions. I am not a veterinary surgeon and I will always recommend that a horse be referred back to its vet should I deem this necessary if its condition is outside any area of my professional field.
