What are Partnerships?
- Partnerships are an exciting opportunity for an entity with many horses to enroll and rotate them through regular treatment scheduling, allowing you to determine which animal(s) receives work according to need on that particular day.
- While many Therapists chose to focus on the needs of sport and performance horses (which I do enjoy as well), my true passion is supporting the work-a-day horse, lesson program horse, horse charged with extraordinary responsibilities in a therapeutic program, senior horse, and horse in rehab moving on to their next career. Often times these animals have unique needs that go beyond typical maintenance care; I excel in working with owners, trainers, veterinarians, and farriers to create treatment plans that extend the comfort in life of such equines.
- As an example, I work with Equility Therapeutic Horsemanship one day per week, seeing two horses at each visit. The horses I see are determined by the Program Director; depending on the individual horses’ workloads, I may see the same horses several weeks in a row, or rotate through the herd over those weeks.
- Partnership is a great option for rehab and/or retirement facilities, lesson barns, training barns, etc.; each Partnership Program is custom designed to best suit the needs of the horses at the facility enrolled. Significant savings is built in, as payment is made monthly. You can choose to have your program listed on my website, and additional social media promotion is possible. Contact me to discuss the ways a Partnership option can work for you.
Equality Therapeutic Horsemanship
I am proud to be working in Partnership with Equility Therapeutic Horsemanship in Shelbyville, Kentucky. This full service equestrian center connects people of all abilities with horses but specializes in therapeutic riding for people with exceptional needs. Their herd consists of equines in all shapes, sizes, and age ranges; requirements of the horses’ job mean that regular sessions of massage, Magna Wave PEMF therapy, and LZR Ultrabright therapy are integral to their comfort and well-being. Some horses arrive to Equility in need of physical rehabilitation from prior disuse, misuse, or injury; I appreciate being part of the team to bring them back to good shape.
Tuscany Hollow Stables
Tuscany Hollow Stables, on the Alta Vista farm grounds in Goshen, Kentucky, is the home of Eventing rider and trainer Amanda Conti. Our Partnership utilizing massage, Magna Wave PEMF, and LZR Ultrabright therapies helps maintain the health of Mandy’s horses in her lesson program, as well as keep her top event mount, Greigermeister, in competition shape throughout the year. Greig is “affectionately” known around the barn as Ogre…but his demeanor belies that moniker on massage and Magna Wave day! His weekly treatments keep him happy during training, and doubling up on therapy the week before a show helps keep him sound and gives him the performance edge during the competitive season. There are a couple of semi-retired campaigners providing a safe and steady mount for up-down lessons in the program at Tuscany Hollow too, which allows me to support senior concerns like navicular and arthritis, keeping older horses comfortable who enjoy doing more than languishing in the field.
Ariatti Equestrian Services
Renowned trainer and coach, Angela Ariatti, of Ariatti Equestrian Services, began with a demo Magna Wave PEMF treatment for one of her older lesson horses and she has now had me apply the therapy for pulling abscesses, supporting healing for sesamoid fracture and suspensory tendon strain, plus a myriad of musculoskeletal and physiotherapy applications for several horses she has in training as well as many horses of riders she is coaching. This is a results-driven horsewoman who does not waste time nor money on fads and gimmicks; I am proud to be providing treatment for horses in her care!
Michelle C. booked her first appointment in order to combat pain and inflammation after dental surgery. Two weeks later she returned to get on the weekly schedule because she “hasn’t felt so energized and pain-free“ since before her battle with fibromyalgia began several years ago. She said the energy lasted for days and was “such a relief from the fatigue“ to which she’s become accustomed.
Jan H. arrived to massage and Magna Wave PEMF treatment after rounds of chiropractic and physical therapy had provided only minimal relief for pain and extremely limited range of motion she suffered in her shoulder and elbow. What she saw as a last resort turned out to provide a full recovery! Now, occasional maintenance sessions are also a chance to fine tune minor aches in other parts of her body and/or provide support for fatigue after business travel.
Mark W. from Louisville, KY, retired from the U.S. Postal Service after years of work in a repetitive-motion job. He also has a full hip replacement. I’ve worked with him for six years to help him regain mobility and reach his athletic goals, with tremendous success. Using traditional Swedish massage techniques as well as tigger-point therapy, side-lying massage, and muscle energy technique, Mark has been able to achieve gains in running, swimming, biking, and weight training. He has also been able to join friends in a weekly competitive basketball game. With the addition of Magna Wave PEMF therapy, he trimmed ninety seconds from his personal best time for his four-mile run, and is “achieving more than [I] ever thought would be possible again after surgery“. His use of prescription NSAIDs is “significantly less“ since adding Magna Wave PEMF therapy to weekly sessions, as well.
Jenni H. from LaGrange, KY, has two sport horses in treatment with me. Both are over 15 years of age and compete regionally in the jumpers over 2’9″. While neither horse has specific issues, per se, when Jenni’s trainer saw them go after their second therapy session, he said, “Keep doing whatever you’re doing with them; they’re moving through these turns like butter!” At their first show after adding Magna Wave PEMF therapy to the weekly maintenance treatment regimen, Jenni said she had “the most lovely, energized but concentrated rounds we’ve ever had.” They placed in the ribbons and arrived home happy and sound.
