Learn how YOU can save $$THOUSANDS of dollars on training bills, farrier visits, saddle fit, and costly trips to the vet! No previous experience is necessary. Whether you are a bodywork beginner or professional you will come out of this class with a new “view” and know how to find and fix issues causing problems with your horse. This method is so unique because it offers effective solutions to equine health questions many horse experts can’t seem to solve.

A Whole New Way of Looking at Horses

The reason why your horse is having these seemingly unsolvable issues is that most people you go to for advice— including vets, trainers, and many equine professionals— are only treating the symptoms, NOT the root of the issues. And that’s the way it’s been for years and years. But if “the good ole’ ways” just aren’t working anymore, now is the time to start looking at things in a whole new way.

Most horses that have been labeled as “problem horses” are really just in some kind of pain. A lot of horses sustain injuries from as young as 6 months of age that they carry with them through their entire lives. When left untreated, these issues can lead to all kinds of health complications, shortening your horse’s unrideable years. Even more serious issues may even shorten their life span.

Learn how you can look at your horse from a better perspective, HOLISTICALLY! As well as what you can do to help your horse yourself right in your own barn that will turn them into the willing and agile equine partner of your dreams.

 Level 1: Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding

Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding is all “soft work” but it is very, very effective in correcting gait abnormalities, saddle fitting issues, and mysterious lameness. (What I mean by “soft work” is that you don’t need a lot of strength for these techniques, anyone can do this!) These soft, gentle moves manually release “stuck” areas to keep the skeleton in proper form and function  so that the horse can load the body, joints, and hooves correctly.

We’ll also cover deep muscle unwinding that will have the horse presenting a 2″ taller, 4″ longer and they look as if they have gained 20 pounds after only a 1-hour session.

As you know, horses are also sensitive and highly energetic, so this course goes over balancing chakras and aligning acupressure meridians, along with techniques in “listening” so that you can finally hear what it is your horse has been trying to tell you! (They don’t always communicate verbally.)

The key is to address the horse holistically, on all levels, not just the physical. Most equine professionals and other horse bodywork modalities do not address the whole horse, so you always end up working on the symptom and not the root cause which is why issues tend to come back time and time again.

  • How to evaluate your horse and identify problem areas
  • Equine bodywork techniques to support previous injuries

Level 2: Cranio Sacral Unwinding & Advanced Applied Kinesiology

Now that the horse’s body has been unwound and rebalanced from the Level 1 work, the next step is to bring it back to proper form, function, and vitality! Continue deepening your knowledge of holistic horsecare and bodywork in our Level 2 Clinic, “Equine Cranio Sacral Unwinding & Advanced Kinesiology.”

In this 3-day hands-on class, we will go deeper into the horse’s body to release cranial bones as well as inner core muscles and Fascia. Releasing these areas helps organs, tendons, ligaments, bones, joints, and more relax so that the body can function more smoothly.

Many horses with problems like Uveitis, Kissing Spine, Wobblers Syndrome, and String-Halt have had their lives saved or wholly altered from the techniques you will learn in this course. Return those labeled as “unfixable” to healthy, sound lives full of longevity.

Then what else is next? A lot! We use advanced Applied Kinesiology to ask where there is pain in the body and what physical or energetic blockages need to be released so the horse can heal. We will also look at energy meridians, how they affect your horse, and what you can do about it.

You will find that the area that is painful and lame is not always where it starts! Discover how to trace problems back through to the original, root cause.

  • Concepts and techniques in Cranio Sacral Therapy

Level 3: Equine Cranial Decompression

In Level 3 Equine Cranial Decompression we work on manually releasing the the cranial bones to relieve horses from past head traumas, most often from a pulled-back when tied incident. Compression of the cranial bones leads to horses that spook or are hard to bridle, recurring uveitis, headshaking, TMJ, heaviness or resistance on one rein, and even the ability to gain weight, assimilate nutrition, or digest properly.

How do the cranial bones affect all of these areas? First and foremost we have to consider that the brain, hormonal, and glandular centers are all housed in the horse’s skull, and if the skull has been compressed, that can lead to unnecessary pressure and lack of blood flow to these areas that regulate metabolism, hormones, thought, emotions, and more.

Some cranial bones also hold the eyes in place, and if these bones are crushed or shifted, it could be affecting your horse’s vision leading to spooking, or inhibiting proper circulation leading to uveitis.

And when a horse experiences cranial compression, it often affects one side more significantly than the other, usually the side they pulled back on the hardest when they were tied. This compression cascades from the poll, through the bones around the eyes, and into the TMJ and jawline. This misalignment may be what’s making your horse heavier or resistant on one rein. It can also make it difficult for them to chew side-to-side as they are meant to, and instead, they chew up and down which creates hooks and waves in the teeth and often requires costly dental floating as a temporary fix. It also means they won’t process their food and thus their nutrition properly and can even cause digestion problems.

Since it requires very specific techniques with a delicate touch, Level 3 is only taught in person and is not available as a home study course.

What You’ll Learn

  • Signs your horse may be experiencing cranial compression
  • How to evaluate your horse’s head and identify problem areas
  • Cranial decompression techniques to support previous head injuries
  • Practices and knowledge to prevent future head injuries
  • Protocols for supporting better nutrition
  • Techniques in energetic and emotional healing

Meet the Instructor

Lynn Reed

Lynn is a practitioner of complementary and alternative therapies. She pours her heart, mind and soul into the constant learning of alternative treatments to better help our equine friends maintain their health and vitality so that we may spend more years riding and loving our equine partners.

In 2011, her equine partner, Bo, of 17 years began having health issues at the age of 21. The thought of retiring Bo was heart breaking and she started seeking out ways to help him. In the summer of 2011 she discovered April Love of Holistic Horse Works who’s ad stated “Add 10 years to your horse’s life.” Immediately she signed up for her and Bo to go to a clinic with this woman that was going to help her keep her horse healthy! This 3-day clinic spring boarded her into a relentless pursuit of natural healing! She is now an endorsed practitioner with Holistic Horse works in Level One, Two, and Three. In 2017, Lynn completed her training to teach Level one and Two.

Since 2011, Lynn has studied Kinesiology, Myofacial Skeletal Releases, Equine Yoga, Equine Massage, Meridian Clearings, Emotion Clearings, and Essential Oils Therapy.

In 2014, Lynn received her CESMT (Certified Equine Sport Massage Therapy) certification fromMidwest Natural Healing for Animals. These along with her continued study of Natural Horsemanship through Pat Parelli’s program, which began in 2002, enable her to help determine the root of the issues that bother our horses.

With her background in Natural Horsemanship training and personality analysis and now her focus on holistic health management, Lynn can assess you as a rider and if your horse has a training issue, a body issue or that’s just their personality.

    What Students Are Saying

    “I enrolled in April’s Level 1 ‘Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding’ Home Study this fall and have never been happier with the quality of education. The amount of information and guidance that is included in the handbook and the video is incredible. I feel like I have finally stumbled upon the wisdom and empowerment I have always been looking for as a horse owner and equestrian. I am even more grateful that April has put together this education so that it be accessed at home.”
    Natalie

    “I currently work as an equine vet tech. I took April’s level one class, unwinding the horse for a couple of reasons. One I had a horse that was physically sore all over and we could not diagnose the exact problem. He hurt in the ribs. His hocks were sore, he was very tight in the hamstrings and when I rode him he would not collect and pushed on the bit. Two I kept seeing the same horses coming into the clinic with physical problems but with no true diagnosis. I look at horses differently now and am able to evaluate them differently than I had before thanks to April. I am looking forward to finishing my next 2 levels.”
    Terri S.

    “I’m very impressed with the workbook, it is organized, detailed, thoughtful, and full of information you wouldnt find anywhere else… and of course easy to understand. The best part is April’s response to your questions is very very quick, usually within an hour and definitively the same day. This woman really cares about her students… I feel she’s healing me as well as my horses.”
