The Masterson Method is no ordinary form of bodywork for horses.
It works on a deeper level than massaging the muscles alone. This method of touching, observing for a response, and waiting for the horse’s release, helps the horse let go of physical tension. That tension may be from pain, past injuries, stress, or a number of other causes.
HorseClass recently partnered with Jim Masterson in a special clinic at the Farm Campus and in creating a new video series.
In this 8 min video, come behind the scenes as Jim talks about:
- How the Masterson Method works by staying “under” the horse’s bracing response
- Why trying to “fix” a problem is rarely successful and what to do instead
- How to use your intuition in body work with your horse
- What this skill of observing your horse does for your relationship with them
