With a background in treating all different types of horses, from retired horses to international show-jumpers, relieving stiffness, discomfort & improving range of movement & way of going.
Charlotte has extensive experience working alongside an Equine Osteopath, and has completed a course with Equissage Europe in equine massage therapy & rehabilitation.
Charlotte is a very experienced rider & trainer. She has competed in show jumping & dressage & teaches a wide range of clients. From helping build confidence to riders competing at national level in all different disciplines.
Her experience with training horses helps her provide well thought out exercise programmes for her lessons but this also plays a big part in her skills as an ESMT. Charlotte puts together maintenance & exercise programmes for clients to improve their horses in-between appointments. Knowing what exercises are best to strengthen certain areas is valuable to clients whether they are requiring rehab programmes or to strengthen their horse & improve their way of going.
When to use Equine Massage Therapy for your horse:
Change in temperament, biting or excessive tail swishing
Change in way of going - High head carriage, disuniting, inconsistent rhythm, not tracking up.
Sensitivity when grooming or tacking up
As a maintenance treatment - helps prevent the risk of injury, enhances muscle tone & increases range of movement
Regular massage for horses in full & competition work is advisable. Horses in less work benefit from treatment every 6-12 months.
