Take Charge of Your Horse’s Health!
We all want our horses to live a happy, healthy life…
How many times have you wondered if your horse’s reaction is behavioral, or if they are experiencing discomfort, or even in pain and you need to call a veterinarian?
Or have you wondered how to keep your horse feeling good when his workload is increasing?
When your horse ends up with an issue, often you will remember when his performance slowly declined or his behavior changed if you think back hard enough. Muscle injuries can sneak up on your horse little by little until you have a larger problem.
It can leave you frustrated.
However, what if YOU could address these smaller issues BEFORE they become larger problems?
What if you could have the power to take charge of your own horse’s health?
IT IS POSSIBLE!
Our EQ75 Equine Massage & Bodywork for Owners & Trainers course
will teach you massage, bodywork and stretching techniques that will help you learn what is normal for your horse. You will be empowered to understand when your horse is trying to tell you that something is not quite right.
YOU become your horse’s advocate!

Whether you are a rider, trainer, farrier, bodyworker, saddle fitter, or simply a person who wants to do more for their horse, our classes give you the knowledge and tools to help your horse be the best they can be.
WHO you are learning from MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Our instructors are top veterinarians and specialists in the industry.

Horses are master communicators, and if you understand their anatomy and know how to decipher their body language, you can help manage their discomfort by recognizing and addressing it.
HORSES TALK THROUGH THEIR BODIES. YOU CAN LEARN TO LISTEN!
Armed with the knowledge of basic equine anatomy and bodywork techniques, you WILL quickly pinpoint areas of stress and help your horse live a better life – one free of discomfort and injury!
Here is how the EquiLearn Institute helps you and your horse:
Obtain a higher level of understanding and take charge of your own horse’s health.
Cultivate a team collaboration so that you and your farrier, veterinarian, and trainer all speak the same language.
Learn common areas of stress to help you differentiate between normal and pain responses.
Acquire basic equine bodywork skills so you can build a better bond with your horse through physical touch.
Improve your eye for gait and conformation assessment.
Taught in person, EQ75 is for horse owners and trainers to develop the stretching techniques and basic massage to do on their own horses. We place extraordinary demands on our horse’s bodies, and they get sore just like we do after a workout! By learning to identify these sore muscles and relieve discomfort, you give something back to your horse and help them feel more comfortable and connected to you.

Hear What Other Equestrians Have To Say About Our Courses:
In 3 days you touched on everything from horse anatomy and physiology, to conformation, lameness, safety guidelines, and contraindications. We learned and practiced identifying basic muscle groups and bodywork technique, and corresponding strokes and releases. The lectures were spot on; lots of rich info but never too much to assimilate, and the perfect amount of practice time to commit it to memory. The lectures were infused with pertinent true stories from your wealth of experience in the horse world, and combined with the treasure trove of photos and videos that illustrated your points beautifully. Your genuine interest and empathy in our personal stories, combined with your offerings of veterinary references and links to more information for deeper study, made the course priceless. You gave me and my classmates a wonderful set of tools to use to get to know our horses better, and a lovely way for me to thank my pony for all the joy that she gives to me. I (we!) will be eternally grateful for this gift.
The course managed to take the complicated nature of anatomy and simplify it in a way that was understandable. The color-coded muscles, each with a description of location and function, were especially helpful for my learning, and the extra recommended articles at the end of each chapter were great resources for more information. I’m a student planning to pursue a career in the equine medical field, and I think this course was the best possible introduction I could have gotten to equine anatomy and physiology.
I have used MFR to 'get thru' to the horses who were not accepting bodywork. One particular horse who was previously guarded and acted like they would take a swing at me first before I could touch them, now looks forward to seeing me! I incorporate Myofascial release with my Equinology bodywork and vice versa, which makes it such a great tool to utilize.
Deb, Dr. Nicole, and Ruth (that teaches MFR, another great class) are incredible instructors and I’m excited to continue my learning from them. No plans to stop until I reach master bodyworker status!

A solution to save you time, money and frustration by being able to convey the messages your horse provides, possibly preventing further damage?
