I have been around horses all my life. I ride horses to work and check our cattle; to compete in barrel racing; and to compete in team roping. When one of my horses became lame and didn’t recover to normal, I started studying videos on YouTube, DVDs and books to try to help my horse. I kept returning to April’s Holistic Horseworks materials. After a couple of years, I had the opportunity to be able to attend her Level 1, 2, and 3 clinics. I feel so blessed to now be able to help horses feel better so that they can perform better.

I have had a lifetime working with horses, with ten years of endurance riding, studying movement and biomechanics, nutrition, and lamenesses. I started April’s Holistic Horseworks bodywork to help my horse move and feel better. The transformation I have seen in these horses is nothing short of amazing! I love the whole-horse approach April teaches, and am excited to continue growing in my equine bodywork capabilities!

I found this course to be very interesting and look forward to incorporating it into my Massage program! I look forward to achieving level 2 and 3 along with the cranial work..however, I have found the home study correspondence to be insufficient for the depth of the information. I’m a visual learner so I would need to attend classes for future certifications.

Teri Szombathy
Completed Levels 1 & 2

Phone: (208) 309-086

I live in Sun Valley, Idaho and currently work as an Equine Vet Tech. I took April’s Level I Class, “Equine Unwinding” for a couple of reasons.  First, I had a horse that was physically sore all over and we could not diagnose the exact problem. His ribs hurt. 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. Secondly, 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 did before, thanks to April. I am looking forward to finishing my next level.

I have been active in the horse community and riding horses for nearly 30 years. Early on in life, I realized that I am passionate about horses and love helping them perform to the best of their abilities. I enjoy balancing the equine body, mind, and soul while hitting all levels of “Release, re-balance, and restore”. I began working on horses in 2004 and have witnessed significant differences with all of the horses I come in contact with. I love to learn and will always further my education to ensure my horses, my clients, and my students will always have up-to-date information. Our world is ever-changing and with it, our views and techniques need to evolve to stay current and proper. I look forward to working with all of my past and future clients as well as bringing this program to students in the Pacific Northwest! Based in Oregon, will travel.

Email: HorseLedHealing@hotmail.com

Follow me on Facebook and Instagram @horse_led_healing Website coming soon! I’ve grown up around horses my whole life and showed Children’s Jumpers on the A circuit and held many championships. As a young adult I assisted in my mother’s lesson program, gave beginner lessons, and ran camps and I began doing bodywork professionally on horses in 2014 using red/infrared LED lights. I love the results I’ve gotten using the light treatment on over 500+ treatments performed. The only downside is that I kept finding similar patterns and knew I needed to dig deeper and find an even more holistic program that I could implement into my program… that’s when I discovered April Love in 2015! I’m so grateful for her contribution to this industry and for sharing her wisdom through her clinics and beyond. If you’re in Central Texas, feel free to contact me and let’s see what I can do to help you and your horse on their healing journey! Happy Healing!

Gérard Mélanie
Bodywork Équin

Completed Level 1, 2 & 3
Area: Paris

Email: contact@bodywork-equin.com

Passionate about dressage, I naturally had to question myself and seek answers on the locomotion of the horse. From this quest for just locomotion, I became interested in fields as vast as equine podiatry, nutrition, naturotherapy and of course bodywork. Areas that are totally complementary to each other and for which we can’t hope for results without considering a global management of the horse. The idea is to help the horse to give us the maximum of his potential with the least amount of restraint, to have a joyful and expressive partner. What is called a « brilliant” horse!

Lisette van Dijk
Natuurlijke Wending
Certified Instructor, Level 1 & 2
Completed Levels 1, 2, 3

Phone: +31650487657
Email: natuurlijkewending@gmail.com

My name is Lisette and I love working with animals. I am a holistic therapist for animals and I help animals with manual therapies, aromatherapy, herbs, flower essences and much more. I’m also a centered riding teacher and horse trainer. The bodywork of Holistic Horseworks is very useful and every horse I train gets a treatment first. For me the bodywork for horses is a prerequisite to start good training and teaching. It removes a lot of training, motion, health and behavioural problems. It makes horse training and teaching much easier, healthier and more fun for horse and rider. Areas: I work in Europe, mainly in The Netherlands and Spain.

Joey Philips
Completed Levels 1, 2, 3 

Phone: +31-(0)651338783

I started my practice in the fall of 2010. The first two years I mainly worked with craniosacral therapy (CS). CS has amazing result, nonetheless I started looking for more ways to complement the treatment. I have learnt different methods of treating the horse. Using bodywork, kinesiology and nutrition I am able to provide owners a holistic approach in treating their horses.
Bodywork helps to balance out the body in a quick and soft way and then CS adds by working through deep tissue and balancing the craniosacral rhythm. CS therapy is possibly the best way to treat headshaking in horses. I have great success in treating headshakers, headshaking is not death sentence anymore and can be cured.

Shelley Meeuwsen
De Paardentherapeut
Completed Level 1

Phone: +31640062617, Completed Level 1
Email: contact@depaardentherapeut.nl

Horses are being viewed as a totality of various physical, emotional and mental layers when treated holistically. Therefore, I look at possible issues with a broad view and address any problems at the origin instead of (temporarily) solving the symptoms. For this reason I combine different types of therapies and also assess the horses management, nutrition, training, harness, teeth and hooves.

email: trixriedo@bluewin.ch

There are so many ways of being with horses. I love them each as beautiful individuals with their own opinion on 4 feet. They feel a fly landing on their coat. This is why I prefer a very light physical contact with horses. My passion is playing at liberty, horse-agility, trail rides and most important: having a good time together and keep them sound. A good relationship is everything.

Keeping my horses myself for more than 20 years let me learn a lot about health and horsemanship. I also took many courses in my life. but April’s clinics were the key. They showed me the way of helping horses in a holistic way that brought together different healing methods and an overall understanding of health and healing. This education is very powerful and becomes a very precious and helping/healing instrument in our daily life.

I love being independent and being able to treat and heal my horses and family myself.

As an experienced therapist and Equine CranioSacral Practitioner, my dedicated and passionate aim is to help improve the lives of each and every Horse, Pony, and Person I am privileged to work with, and help them individually to be the very best they can. Whilst currently working with a wide range of horses and ponies locally and also in many other UK Counties, my work over the last ten years has also taken me to Northern Ireland, France, Belgium, California, Canada, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Australia … So far!

For several years now I have worked together with April Love of Holistic Horseworks LLC, and am a Practitioner in her Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding work, also a presenter for all three of her workshops, either group based, or the recently introduced ‘one to one’ alternative which is already proving very popular.

I am an endurance rider and have been riding and working around horses since the age of 6. During my childhood, most of my time was spent training young horses that my parents purchased from drought stricken farms in South Africa.

I am a licensed holistic horse works, mayo fascia release and craniosacral therapy practitioner.

Courses with April, over a period of 3 years, equipped me to become an equine practitioner.  Following that, I attended the Craniosacral Academy of Australia to become a humane practitioner.

To further understand the impact of saddle fit and hoof care on the Equine body I attended TAFE completing Hoof care, basic trimming, first aid for horses and Saddle fit courses.

In 2016 l traveled to Galt California to retake and help teach Level 1 & 2 and also take my Level 3. Over the years since that first Clinic l have been working on horses in our area and also in Sweden, and on our own horses, of course! Working with horses is so rewarding; to see them getting relaxed, out of pain, and being able to move the way they were born to do. l can’t think of a better thing to do! I have been teaching one on one or in groups, either one is very workable. I am willing to travel to your barn. It can be to any province in Canada or could be to Sweden!
