Despite the incredible benefits that Equine Bodywork may bring to the table, there are actually times when it could do more harm than good. It’s important to know when to hold off on an Equine Bodywork session.
Contraindications of Equine Bodywork:
If your horse is experiencing any of the listed contraindications, it’s important to consult with your veterinarian.
Once bodywork is cleared by your vet, you may continue your sessions. Your horse’s health is our #1 priority.
Originally from a small town in Western Massachusetts where there are likely more cows than people, I earned my degree in Equine Studies at Centenary University and worked as a groom and managed barns up to the FEI level, dabbling in the hunter/jumper, dressage, western, and combined driving disciplines. At the end of the 2021 WEF season, I settled down in Nazareth, PA and started Gray Scale Equine, offering Equine Bodywork & Services. My mission has always been to become an advocate for each horse I have the privilege of working on and strive to help them reach their full potential with every interaction.
