The course will cover basic Equine Anatomy and Physiology, Massage and Stretching Techniques specific to your horse’s needs plus much, much more.

Alternative venues can be considered by prior arrangement & one-2-one training is available based on a day rate, contact ETUK for further details.

Excellent course, excellent venue, a most enjoyable experience.
A really useful and interesting day – gave me the confidence to practise skills learnt on my own horse.
Enjoyable and very informative, had a great day, many thanks!
I had a lot of fun and more importantly, I am now able to massage my own horse.
I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and feel confident in massaging my own ponies. Looking forward to seeing the results!
Gilliyan was fantastic and put across a complex subject in a clear and informative way, that even I could understand!
I’m sure my horses will enjoy what I’ve learnt. What a great day!
