Just started stage 2 of the equine touch course today in my local area of France. I really only aim to use it to treat my own horses with a “non invasive bodywork”, it is a great way to relax them and deal with minor problem areas. It helps me to develop a “feel” for hotspot areas if any and to relieve some of the tense muscles under the saddle area. It is also a great way of spending time improving our relationship and bonding and makes a change from the usual grooming ritual.
Sadly the founder of this form of therapy Jock Ruddock died recently of cancer, but his widow, a qualified vet and her dedicated team is continuing his work. I would recommend any horse owners to look at the website and consider this training for themselves.
