Horse Massage for Horse Owners PDF
My enthusiasm for massage developed over many years. I was lucky enough to be brought up with horses, and have ridden since I was 3 years old. My ponies carried me safely from lead-rein through Pony Club and on to horses, including competing in affiliated showjumping and eventing.
Deciding initially that university wasn’t for me, I followed my love of horses through a variety of jobs, working with a range of breeds from Shetland to Shire, and in diverse areas such as driving and point-to-pointing as well as dressage, show jumping, eventing, hacking and teaching. At one time I had my point-to-point jockey licence, but unfortunately the horse ‘did a leg’ the week before I was due to ride in my first race, and by the next season racing wasn’t an option.
The majority of my time in my late teens and early twenties was spent with a horse dealer. We visited horse fairs including Appleby, Stowe, and Ballinasloe, and were regulars at Southall and Reading Markets. I met horses from all walks of life, including a spell of selling to the knackerman, and importing top-quality showjumpers from abroad. It was a steep learning curve, one that not many people have the opportunity to experience, and one for which I am forever grateful – I truly believe that I would not be where I am now without the knowledge that I gained during that time.
