Welcome to Balanced Horse
Thanks for dropping by!
Here, you can find details of my gentle but deeply effective bodywork for horses, saddle fitting services, patches for acupuncture points and equine care workshops. I enjoy a strong and still growing reputation here on the Northern Rivers region of NSW and receive recommendations from vets, veterinary chiropractors and trainers. Do take a look at my video – at 3½ minutes it’s not too long and is full of interesting case studies, showing some of the more dramatic ‘before and afters’.
One of the biggest causes of problems for horses is saddle fit. Good saddle fit is vital if your horse is to remain healthy and to happily do what you ask. It’s a huge subject area and one that I’ve been learning about intensively for a couple of years now. I offer saddle fitting services, as this is so intrinsic to good back health in horses.
To help resolve physical issues, I use patches for acupuncture points. These support the bodywork and provide rapid, drug-free pain relief for horses – and riders. See the Patches page for information on how these work, links to published research and details of how to buy.
Where do I work? The areas I cover include Lismore, Ballina, Byron, Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah, Tweed Valley, Kyogle and Casino. I also do regular trips south to Grafton and Coffs Harbour.
Another Bodywork Basics workshop will be held in Ballina in February 2012. This day is ideal for the absolute beginner and the horse owner without much time. See the Workshops page for more details.
Other plans for 2013 – three events with Australia’s leading equine anatomist and bodyworker Sharon May-Davis! More details on the Workshops page, or email me to go on the early bookers list.
