Would you like to enable your horse to perform and feel better, to overcome old limitations and restrictions and reach its full potential?

In this book, Jim Masterson, Equine Massage Therapist for the 2006 and 2008 and 2010 USET Endurance Teams, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World Cup, Pan American and World Games competitions, teaches a unique method of equine bodywork, in which the practitioner recognizes and follows the responses of the horse to touch to release tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance.

This practical book:

  • has step-by-step instructions, photographs and illustrations
  • is ideally suited to accompany you to the barn, where you will practice the Masterson Method techniques on horses.
  • includes chapters with Tips & Techniques, anatomical explanations and examples from Jim's practice help deepen your understanding.
  • has a quick reference section will point you to exercises that are specifically suited to your particular discipline, may it be dressage, endurance, eventing or barrel racing, or others in the vast realm of horse sports.

 

By using these techniques, and knowing the responses to look for, you are able to:

  • achieve a release of accumulated stress in deep-seated key junctions of the horse's body that affects mobility, comfort, attitude, training and performance
  • restore muscular and structural balance, and natural alignment
  • enable your horse to perform optimally and respond to your training without stiffness and pain
  • achieve new levels of communication and trust with your horse that spill over into other areas of interaction.

Take a look at Jim Masterson talking about the Masterson Method which is described in detail in Beyond Horse Massage.

Author Notes: Equine Massage Therapist for the 2006 and 2008 and 2010 USET Endurance Teams, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World Cup, Pan American and World Games competitions, first became interested in equine massage in 1997. Jim recognized that the horse exhibits certain neurological responses to touch as it releases tension in the body. Using those responses to guide his work, he developed a system in which the horse participates in the process by showing the practitioner where tension has accumulated, precisely how much pressure is needed to release it, and when it has been released. The result is an effective method of bodywork that anyone can learn to use, to improve performance while at the same time opening new levels of communication and trust with the horse. Jim has been a presenter at Equitana Asia Pacific (Australia, 2008) and Equine Affaire (US, 2009) equine conventions and was invited to demonstrate his techniques at the Syracuse Invitational Horse Show (2009). Jim currently works on 500 to 600 horses a year on the U.S. Hunter-Jumper Show circuit, including top equine competitors in events such as the USEF and Maclay Medal series, and FEI Grand Prix, Nations Cup, Pan American and World Cup jumping events. He helped members of the USET Singles Driving Team prior to the 2010 Championships in Italy and members of the USET Jumping team. Jim teaches Masterson Method seminars and advanced courses to horse owners, trainers and therapists worldwide.
