I guess everybody is unique. I love, and benefit from, chiropractic and massage work done on my own body. My husband thinks both are just O.K.
I have seen horses that have had both of these responses; some seeming indifferent and others who had dramatic improvement in performance.
So here are my questions: Have you ever taken a massage therapy course for horses? If you use an equine massage therapist: do you know where they were certified?
I realize that a two day weekend course won’t be as intensive as a two year course but I am thinking of looking for a short course to take. Newt and I had a talk the other day (actually I was doing some YouTube massage techniques on him) and he agreed I should take a course. He liked what I did but wanted more.

I just finished reading your inquiry about equine massage course recommendations and the 47 comments from last year in 2015. I am wondering if you ever pursued this further and if so, what school you decided on or would consider. It has been a challenge sifting through the various curriculums offered and am trying to make a final decision.
Thank you in advance for your response! -Dale G.
