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.

What You’ll Learn

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 so that you know how and when to help them
  • Equine bodywork techniques to support previous injuries and prevent future ones
  • Stretches to keep your horse limber and at their best performance levels
  • These stretches also act as a diagnostic tool to show you when issues arise
  • Techniques for skeletal and muscular release that will restore your horse's body alignment which affects hoof balance and saddle fit
  • How to actually "listen" to your horse so you know exactly what is going on and how they feel
  • How to balance and align their energetic centers which also affect their physical and emotional balance
  • Exercises to release trapped emotions so that your horse is not holding on to past trauma
  • Natural remedies for common horse health issues so that you can help your horse easily and affordably
  • Valuable preventative protocols to stop potential issues before they start

As soon as you make your purchase, you will have access to all of the course content so that you can start learning immediately! This includes videos that you can watch instantly and access at any time for the life of the program, as well as a downloadable, 120-page workbook to help you integrate and practice all of your newly gained knowledge.

After completing the course content, there is a test you can take to earn a certificate of completion! (But only if you want to.) This test consists of submitting 5 case studies using the Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding method to evaluate and care for a horse. Your case studies will be turned in one-by-one, one and reviewed directly by Holistic Horseworks founder April Love. Upon successful demonstration of the EMU method, you will be awarded a certificate of completion!

After earning your certificate of completion, you can also choose to advance on to becoming an officially certified Holistic Horseworks practitioner, or even a Holistic Horseworks instructor! (Additional costs not included in this program. Click here for more details. ) Start a new career in horse care, or expand your skillset in your current profession.

As a BONUS, you will also receive a free distance reading valued at $75! In a distance reading, you take pictures of the right and left sides of your horse, which April will then review and return with a full report on your horse’s health and alignment issues. This will be especially helpful as you study so you know what to work on.

You will also receive a free 30 minute, one-on-one consultation with Holistic Horseworks Founder April Love! No more wondering, “Well, what does that mean?” “Am I doing this right?” Find answers to your most pressing equine care questions and undivided, receive personal attention from an expert in the industry.
