Any Equissage grads practicing in the state of Wisconsin for canine massage, and in NY (upstate), also for canine massage? TIA!
Hi! Just wanted to let you know my certification test has been delivered to your PO box. Very excited to hear how I did! Please let me know if you have any issues viewing the videos. Thanks again for such a wonderful learning opportunity !

Kristina
Thank you, Mary and Equissage, for a great week with Brave Name, Nicolas, Violet and all the other wonderful equine instructors! This was so good for me. AND i loved meeting my new cadre of fellow equine massage therapists Savannah Greene, Rebecca Hargreaves, Jill Baddorf and Julie Heinzman. 🧡
Dear Mary,

First of all I hope that you are all safe and both 4 and 2 legged family are doing okay

I just want to thank you. I have a little mini mare who suddenly could not walk, just shuffle. Everything else was okay but she looked like a little old lady. I reverted back to the training I got from Equissage and worked on her. It took about 12 days of massaging her every other day and last night she started walking a lot better. She stumbles once in a while but she is out in the field with the rest of the crew and hopefully is now on the mend. Will continue to use your treatments until she is 100%. Again, thank you so much

I don't know if I told you but I had to have Spirit put to sleep last year as his arthritis was so bad he couldn't get up and his hips sounded like crumbled tissue paper when he eventually got up. I had promised him that when he was ready I would help him cross the bridge. The vet came out and put him to sleep and then he went to Precious Pets where he was cremated and now he is in the barn with Patches and PeeWee.

Again, thank you for the training it is invaluable. Be safe and please take care. jackie carroll Picked on Pony Farm, 10641 E 640 Rd, Hennessey OK 73742

I know I didn't take the final exam but I still use your knowledge on my horses and donkeys
Cous, Sailor wrote an awesome book! TY!
Yay!!!!!!
I'm in AZ. I haven't seen anything in my area, so I thought about the online course. Looking at getting into something new. This working 2 jobs is getting really old.
Yay!!!!
Hope your Halloween was happy!!!!!!!
So grateful to give Junior his first Equissage, not sure who looks happier and hopefully the first of many to come . He is perfect .
Just thought I would share some of my wonderful experiences since having attended & successfully graduated Equissage in March 2000, The massage has become such a huge part of my life since then. Always watching 4 leggeds gait & assessing movement has always been a passion for me. I have shown horses in numerous disciplines since 1979 and raced & trained Standardbreds. Since 1992 I have shown, bred and trained Yorkshire Terriers also. I am very active in showing, breeding & judging dogs here in Canada. As an ESMT/CSMT I have been fortunate to have applied the Equissage methods to countless canines in the conformation and performance rings in North America and abroad. The transformation of many of these dogs and horses over the 19 years has been incredible to say the least. There is nothing more fulfilling and rewarding than helping any animal restore their full range of motion, mobility and eliminate pain associated with muscle strain and abnormalities. I can so highly recommend to anyone wanting to make a difference for animals to most definitely contact Equissage. Get ready for the most exciting time of your life, you will never regret it! and may this become your lifes passion as well 💖💖
Any equine massage therapists practicing in Texas? I have some questions.

Today's #studentspotlight is on Jan Kaiser ✨
"I have always felt a connection with horses when I’m around them. I couldn’t think of a better way to develop a deeper understanding of them and develop a more trusting relationship then to help relieve their aches and pains using touch and massage. When I heard about Equissage, I had to attend the training. It was amazing!"

This weeks student spotlight is on Sierra M.! 🙌🌟

"I love all the Equissage horses! But I really love (and miss) Dancer. He was such a good boy and he had such an old soul like Mary said. He was the perfect mixture of standing still and having awesome reactions for when I would treat a tight muscle . I love to see that to know they like what I’m doing !"

We agree, Dancer is pretty awesome😉

This week's #studentspotlight is on Laney Watson. 🌟
"I have always been a huge advocate for doing whatever I can to help my horses feel and work the best that they can. So when a former Equissage graduate worked on my extremely sore horse at a barrel race, and there was immediate improvement, I knew this was something I wanted to do with my life. To help horses AND their owners... because don't we all feel better when our horses are 100%?! She told me about this amazing program and I enrolled the next week. One of the best decisions I've made! "

This week's #studentspotlight is on graduate Jennifer Douglas. Jennifer studied at Equissage in 2001, shortly after 9/11.

"I had horses at the time and I just loved them so much I wanted to learn how to make their lives easier. Your home and school brought such a calming atmosphere after such tragic events."

We are so thankful you shared you story with us, Jennifer!

A few days ago we had a special visitor here at Equissage. Her name is Patricia and she used to do Dressage and Three Day Eventing when she lived in California. She moved to Virginia four years ago and hasn’t competed since.

Patricia is 96 years young and hopes to ride Opi when we have some cooler weather!
