EQUITANA USA: Full Bodywork Session with Jim Masterson

Organizer: Nicole Forbes Nicole.forbes@rxglobal.com

The Masterson Method's Jim Masterson will lead full bodywork sessions at EQUITANA USA 2021 to take place October 1-3, 2021 at the Kentucky Horse Park.

EQUITANA USA is pleased to partner with STRIDER, the leading equestrian bookings platform, to enable applications and payment for this premier opportunity. To apply to participate in this unmounted bodywork session with your horse, visit: https://bit.ly/applyequitana

This unmounted bodywork session will demonstrate how to recognize and use the visual responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated stress in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. Jim Masterson has successfully taught these techniques to hundreds of owners, therapists, and trainers worldwide, enabling them to open new levels of communication and relationship with their horses.

Discussion of the principles of The Masterson Method®:
• The horse’s survival-bracing response.
• How to use different levels of touch, and the horse’s responses to by-pass the bracing response.
• Use of movement and positioning to allow a muscle or junction to release tension.
• Key junctions of the body that most affect performance.
• How the subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle process of release works.

Each session will feature one horse and handler. To apply to participate with your horse, visit: https://bit.ly/applyequitana

ABOUT JIM MASTERSON & THE MASTERSON METHOD:
Jim Masterson teaches a unique method of equine body work in which the horse participates in the process by showing the practitioner where tension has accumulated and when it has been released.

The result is an effective method anyone can learn which will improve performance as well as open new levels of communication and trust with the horse. Jim has been the Equine Bodywork Therapist for the 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 USEF Endurance Teams, and has worked on thousands of horses competing on the AA Hunter-Jumper level in the United States, and in FEI Nations Cup and Pan American equestrian competitions. He now teaches his methods to horse owners and therapists around the world. He is the author of several books, stars in his own educational DVDs, and certifies hundreds of students in The Masterson Method® per year.
