Equine Body Balance™ Working with the Equine Limbs (2-Day Class)

We will address the equine limbs and common areas of restriction through looking at range of movement, hooves as an organ, limb structure, types of joints and joint articulation, ligaments and tendons, musculature, relationship of the limbs to the spine, efficient vs. inefficient movement. ~ Susan Smith, Founder & Instructor  (Susan Smith teaches Equine Body Balance ™ courses, Liberty Foundation™ courses, and is an Associate Instructor and Advanced Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, Practitioner Equine Positional Release (EPR) and Reflex Balancing. She brings her knowledge of these modalities to Equine Body Balance as a unique offering.)

 Hosted by OHC Student Joanna DeRungs at her Natural Whisperings farm in Canby, Oregon. No Haul-ins. No Audits. No pets please. Class Limited to 12 participants.

Susan Smith’s classes are designed for horse owners and professionals, bodyworkers and equine enthusiasts who would like to learn how to do some effective bodywork on their horse. The courses will include building blocks of equine health and energetic relationship with the horse. The work relies on the horse’s innate ability to self-correct and can have profoundly sustainable results. Emphasis in class will be on developing feel and timing in contact. Neither class requires a pre-requisite.

Hands-on non-force work will include:

·        Assessment and palpation

·        Principles & safety

·        Developing feel

·        Techniques

·        Rechecking of points
