“I’ve just finished reading your book and first I want to thank you for writing it. I loved it!!! I’ve had Reiki healing for many years, reading your book added so much to me. It was finding the missing piece. I feel more complete, strong and self assured in my bodywork. Also my horses who are used to my hands on have had many and long still points and strong releases. It will be an adventure to follow them in future changes.”  Kia, Sweden

“This is a book that goes beyond the anatomical importance of the connective tissue system in horses….it addresses the holistic need of the horse to be understood and respected. It gives the behavior and performance of horses and how relief for the facial system provides horses with much more than alleviation of pain. This book should be in the library of all horse owners.”
Madalyn Ward, DVM

“I purchased your book and am starting to use it on my gelding.   My gelding gave me such a look of amazement  after I did some releases on him. The book is so wonderful. This work is fascinating. I tried it on myself first and felt the power which gave me confidence to try it on my horse. Thanks for the great book and sharing your knowledge.”  Elizabeth G

“My farrier could not believe the difference in Weismann and Aurora. W had the same hoof on the left as on the right. Just a smaller size but they are getting close to matching. The knee points are only off a little bit now and he just couldn’t imagine that W (well, and A ) could look so different from seven weeks ago. He is now a huge believer in this work. Had me come over that night and look at a couple of his horses and give my opinion on them. He does have your book (I gave them to everyone up here) and he’s been doing some of the work on a few of his horses but now he is getting pretty serious about it after seeing the transformation on “W. Have been riding him twice a week now and that is going well. The walk continues to improve. .. When I watch him in the mirrors, it doesn’t look like he is off at all. Only doing 3-4 laps each time he gets ridden. Last time before I rode him, he showed me only his trot, which is highly unusual. He hasn’t shown me trot in months. Such a rock star. ” Lauri

How Did I Develop This Work?


 An avid rider with a BA in Journalism, my visual skills were honed as an artist while I worked in print media. I was enthralled by horses as a child and bought my first horse at 20. A riding injury in my 20’s (racing in the mud!)  created a keen interest in  solutions for my chronic stuckness and pain. My career was in newpapers & print media, and horses were my fun. Since I’d always been fit, I knew nothing about fascia or connective tissue. I tried many therapies searching for relief from pain & stuck areas. Adhesions turned my body into a group of wood-like hard areas that created constant tension & stress. It was hard to have sustained energy and the compressed nerves brought pain. I prayed for relief to this elusive fitness problem I couldn’t identify.  

Through a horse show, I met Heller worker Steve Evans. His fascia sessions with me so profoundly restored my lost fitness that when he suggested I certify in Equine Natural Movement with Joseph Freeman–this was Heller fascia work for horses, I decided to try it. This “hobby” turned into a vocation although I was over 50.  

My injuries were valuable–I understood the horses.  Since most horses have real problems, I developed a visual method to quickly find the core imbalance or injury.  This visual approach brought effective results promptly; we saw the horse change and followed the horse’s body. We didn’t get lost in guessing or diagnosing how the fascia worked, we followed the changes. The horse instructed us by his response. It never fails that the horse knows what’s next for him. My client horses usually had a single injury event with years of compensations. Since the horse is a master compensator, it’s very easy to get lost in the maze of those compensations. 

By using this visual method, you can find the real trouble and save yourself from losing a good horse or paying for vetting that won’t solve the true injury. 

Is Your Horse 100%?  published in April, 2017 by Trafalgar Square Books and its talented  editors Caroline Robbins, Martha Cook and designer Rebecca Didier. The book is written and designed for easy use and success with helping horses. Above photo shows my  conformation mentor Jeff Edwards of the Wild Horse Research Farm in Porterville, CA. This was a  Barb filly from the famed Brislawn Ranch in Wyoming. 

Below, I’m riding my  Andalusian/Quarter mare, who came to me with many compensations from a T-post accident at age 3. This mare’s injuries taught me elbow, pelvic floor and tail releases.
