Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding is a horse bodywork method like no other. It is our premier and most popular offering at Holistic Horseworks, and for good reason.

The tools, techniques, and perspectives used in this practice are not only totally unique but extremely effective in solving a wide variety of equine issues from mysterious lameness to poor behavior, problematic saddle fit, kissing spine, uveitis— the list goes on.

Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding will (and in many ways already has) revolutionize the horse care industry.

We Made it Official!

Did you know that most courses that offer a certificate are not actually “Certifying” you?

For someone to be able to officially certify you they have to be the originator of the methodology. Here at Holistic Horseworks, we have gone through the rigorous procedure to put all of our videos and workbooks up to rigorous scrutiny in order to receive the IICT approval to brand a new modality called Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding!


We can now officially offer all past students that have taken our program a chance to be recognized and certified in EMU with individual IICT approval of their own.

What Our Program Teaches You

Level-Up Your Practice

Whether you already are— or are looking to become— a horse care practitioner, learning and getting certified in this methodology will add a whole new level of credibility to your practice.

Most other equine bodywork courses can only offer you a certificate of completion, but Holistic Horseworks can offer you an official certification. The only way a certification can be issued is by the originator of a modality or program. April Love, founder of Holistic Horseworks, lends her credentials and expertise to make this possible!

Imagine how great it will feel to tell your friends, family, professional colleagues, and potential clients that you are professionally qualified to offer high-quality, professional care to horses.

And then you get to hand them a business card with professional seals and accreditation on it! Plus, by the end of the program, you’ll be insured to boot, keeping you, your clients, and their horses safe. (That’s where the IICT part comes in. We want all of our practitioners to be insured!)
