Relaxation for Your Horse

A two day Equine Massage course, designed for anyone interested in learning about relaxation massage techniques for their own horses, is being offered at the Regional Equine & Agricultural Centre of Huron (REACH) on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27, 2011 in Clinton, Ontario.


 
“The use of relaxation massage techniques will be of benefit to all horses, regardless of their job or age”, says Sharon McMaster, course instructor.
 
This two-day course is suitable for owners or caregivers of horses of any discipline, older horses in training and performance horses. This introductory course is a prerequisite for the advanced massage to be offered at REACH Huron in March. Hands-on experience using the REACH horses is provided in a safe, quiet, supervised environment. Classroom sessions will be in the Education Centre. This course is designed for anyone wishing to use massage techniques now or in the future on their own horses. More details about the course are available at http://www.reachhuron.ca/equine.cfm
 
“Registration for this course closes on Friday February 18 2011, and registration is limited to ensure lots of instructor supervised hands-on work,” says Melanie Prosser, Director of Program Services at REACH. “Those who can provide proper relaxation massage to their horses have yet another way to ensure their well-being.”
 
The facilities at REACH include a heated teaching barn, high-tech classrooms, dorm rooms and a community kitchen. For further information about the course or REACH, please visit www.ReachHuron.ca.
