Meet My Assistants
For those of you who have been around horses for any
length of time, you probably already know what I mean
when I say that my horses are my teachers. I learn
information and techniques from school, books,
seminars, etc. But, it is when I go out to the barn that I
really start learning.
Horses are so willing to communicate with us, provided
they think we are listening. If we aren't, look out, all kinds
of bad things can happen. I will talk more about that in
the lesson on Equine Behavior and the Mind / Body
For now, I would like to introduce you to my boys. They
are going to be my trusty assistants to help you learn all
about equine massage and other alternative equine
My Faithful Companion
If you have been looking around this site very much, you may
have already met Que (pronounced Q - like the letter in the
alphabet). Why not just call him Q? Because he is a big,
beautiful Thoroughbred trained in dressage - and he just
seemed to need a fancier name.
I know this story is a little long, but I hope you find it a useful
addition to this web site. It is the story of how my horse
taught me so much about how horses teach us - if we are
willing to listen.

My Newest Assistant-
Here is the newest addition to my family. Since I haven't had him very
long, he has all kinds of wonderful problems and issues that I can use to
show you how to apply equine massage and alternative equine therapies.
He will show you how a horse may behave and react when therapy is
I hope you will take some time to find out more about Traveller and to see
the picture of how he looked when I first bought him. He has come a long
way since I have owned him and is getting better every day. You can also
see a picture of my rescue doggies on this page. (they are very cute)

I hope you enjoy getting to meet "my assistants". All
of them have taught me so much. I hope that they can
teach you also. Every animal has it's own story and it's
own issues. Your own horses will teach you even more
than this website will be able to teach you. I am just
going to give you the information and instruction you
need. They will be your real teachers.
I hope you enjoy your horses as much as I enjoy mine.
