My passion  in my work is to create harmonious solutions for equestrian teams.  An eclectic mix of teachers has shaped my approach to horses,  combining elements of CranioSacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Re-Education, Yoga, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Shiatsu and T’ai Chi Ch’uan with principles of Natural Horsemanship and psychological well being.

From my own  experiences with Fibromyalgia, I have a unique understanding of the effects both “sharp and loud” or “dull and chronic” pain can exert, having rebuilt my own body from just about nothing.    I incorporate theories on alignment and straightness through years of Yoga practice into my Therapy and continue to explore the actions of muscles and mind on the health and performance ability of bodies.

I operate in Ireland on a pay-as-you-wish principle.



Equine Breathing      World wide

Click here for Equine Breathings website .

Equine Breathing is a new holistic method that enables horse owners to help their horse recover from chronic ailments (such as Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease, COPD where the horse has difficulty breathing) and behavioural problems (such as headshaking), and to increase fitness and performance. Anyone can do Equine Breathing using free instructions available on Clare’s website above.  It is soothing and relaxing and horses enjoy it.

If a horse has a chronic ailment or behavioural problem, then it will be over breathing (breathing too big a volume of air). Over breathing has a direct and damaging effect on the physiology and can therefore eventually manifest in symptoms.

Equine Breathing is not a veterinary technique or even a therapy, it is simply a training method that owners can use to bring their horse’s breathing back towards normal. As the horse’s breathing improves, the physiology recovers and symptoms reduce.

About Gina:  I am an Equine Touch – Tteam – Connected Riding and Groundwork practitioner – Energy balancing/healing of horses

My main aim is to help as many horses as possible – to make their bodies and minds calmer, more focused, pain free and able to work to their full potential. I recognize it’s also important to work with owners to advise and assist them in their journey with their horse and to give them as much information and advice as possible. To this end I am constantly studying other techniques and working towards being able to give a full service to my clients eg, nutrition, saddle fit, advice on hoof balance etc…

I work with all breeds of horses from racing thoroughbreds to showjumpers to pleasure horses to miniatures. Primarily, I do Equine Touch bodywork and blend in other techniques as I see necessary. I also breed my own Irish Sport horses and compete at showjumping and dressage myself.
