How long is a session?
Depending on your horse’s ability to relax, an initial session is up to 75 minutes with a follow-up session around 45 minutes.
What can I expect in a session?
Toni will give a full assessment of your horse’s body and then will use a combination of therapies best suited to your horse’s needs. If it is appropriate, Toni will refer to a vet or other complimentary therapy.
When can I ride my horse after a massage?
That depends entirely on the horse and his response to the session, but most horses could be ridden the same day. For the initial session it is best that it is no closer than 4 days before a competition, to allow the horse time to adjust to his new way of moving.
When will I see an improvement?
You will see improvement immediately. The horse will still be processing and releasing for a period of 48 hours following a session so the full benefit is usually noticed around four days following treatment. For this reason, if your horse is being treated for the first time, allow at least 4 days prior to competition. However, if it is a follow-up session, your horse can be seen right up until the day of competition.
At your appointed time
Please have your horse caught, unrugged and free of any surface dirt, mud and sweat. It is preferable to have worked your horse before the session, allowing adequate time to cool down, rather than after.
Please do not apply hoof oil or dressing to your horse before the appointed time.
It is best if you have an undercover area but if you don’t then a shady tree is sufficient for the warmer months.
In the event of heavy rain, please contact me on the morning of the appointment to discuss treatment alternatives.
If you need to cancel, please allow 12 hours notice. Cancellations on the appointment day will incur a 50% fee and within the hour will incur a 75% fee. If I arrive with no cancellation notice, 100% fee applies. Please avoid this by giving as much notice as possible.
