Betty M. Hill          USA

Location:  Texas (San Antonio area)


Phone:  (830) 885-7080

Modalities:      I have attained Level III Reiki Master/Teacher  and I am in the process of learning Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure

About Betty:  Reiki has become an all-consuming practice in my life and it has been spiritually redefining for me.  I quickly realized that the more I learn, the less I know.  My energy toward others has noticeably “shifted” and I have found a great peace and acceptance of my life’s path.  While I love to give Reiki treatments to humans and have been amazed with the results, the energy work that I have done with animals has been even more amazing.  Their acceptance and reactions are so incredibly pure …

My intentions are to learn as much as possible and heighten my energy awareness so that I may be of greater service to others.

Donna M Clark MMCP   USA

Location: Southern Oregon


Phone: 541-846-0376

Click here for her website  

About Donna:   I am  Masterson Method Certified Pratitioner:  This work is unique in that it provides precise osteopathic joint release in the key junctions of the horse’s body that most affect performance. Utilizing the horse’s immediate response to this work provides the intel for how the work proceeds and the ensuing benefits.  As our horses are expected to fulfill their athletic potential, the Masterson Method TM, enables top performance in all disciplines and at all levels of riding.

Donna added… I connect at the heart with horses.  With my hands and breath, I listen.  I touch the horse all over and he/she tells me where they are restricted and feeling tension.  I facilitate the horse’s release of that tension.  Usually, by the time a horse shows up lame, they have been hurting for awhile (unless it is an acute injury).  As you know, horses are very protective so there is a big element of trust.  I work very slowly and lightly, utilizing the Bladder Meridian as a guide for my hands and In Balance Horse Aromatherapy to attain the release of endorphins before proceeding.


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.

Click here for a short introductory video about Equine Breathing    The website is full of info including case studies, how it works, how to help your horse, how to help yourself etc. Clare of Equine Breathing is always happy to hear from you and answer questions by email.

Ingrid Iversen    USA

Location: I work in the 4-corners area of Colorado (SW corner)–Durango, Mancos, Cortez, CO., Farmington N.M., and one woman brings rescue horses for me to work on from Utah

Phone:   970-382-2252


What Ingrid does:  I was  a Feldenkrais Practitioner with 2-leggeds for 24 years.  For the past 6 months I have been working to translate this gentle, intelligent work to horses in my own way. Although I have a long way to go to become as experienced and effective as I desire, I am already helping many horses to relax deeply, improve movement in their necks, backs shoulders, pelvis’, hips and legs, and reducing or eliminating pain which comes from poorly organized movement. Through the years I have worked with a number of riders, and I find now that I am often asked to work on owners as well as horses. This is ideal! (I am just beginning a year-long training in energy-healing methods from many world-wide traditions, and plan to adapt those to my work with horses also.)

I am most interested in improving the well-being of horses and in improving my ability to communicate with/know them lovingly. I love teaching people how to help heal both themselves and their animals.

About Kelly:  I am extremely passionate about helping horses! I grew up in a holistic home and have continued on with my own family and animals. I began my journey with healing horses by studying to help my own horses. I was blown away with the results, and as people started asking me to work on their horses, my passion became a business that I truly love!  I am constantly studying with an open mind and learning new things. Every horse is unique in personality and needs and I treat them accordingly.  I have a trainer who I work with and we have developed a whole new system of training a horse, mind, body and spirit. I really love to work on hard cases where the horse has been given up on. They are truly needy and respond in an incredible way and give so much of themselves.  I am humbled and continually amazed at how energy work can truly make a huge difference in a horse’s life.

Kate Scarlott   USA

Location State of Vermont


Phone:  (802) 472-3378

Qualifications:  Reiki Master Practitioner

About Kate: I offer reiki for all animals for wellbeing, injury, illness, and animals in transition, with house and barn calls I have a broad knowledge and passion for alternative therapies, including homeopathy, and especially reiki. I am studying aromatherapy in the hopes of also incorporating flower essences and essential oils. I also have 20+ years training and working draft horses. Over the last year, I have been studying and evolving my way of being with horses, using the methods of Carolyn Resnick, Jenny Pearce and Klaus Hempfling, among others. I’m learning the tools for a much deeper connection with my horses based on respect, trust, and willingness which reach far beyond other “natural horsemanship” methods. This is an exciting and challenging journey, and my dream is to offer reiki and tools for a more profound and meaningful relationship for animals and humans.


Maureen Harmonay   Animal Translations   USA

Location:  Massachusetts (but I work worldwide)


Phone:  (978) 502-5800

Click here for Maureen’s website

Qualifications:  I am a graduate of Carol Gurney’s HeartTalk program for professional animal communicators, a Reiki II practitioner, and I also use surrogate EFT to help release a horse’s past trauma and fear.

About Maureen:  I am an animal communicator who uses compassion and telepathy to connect with horses and other animals.  I do some local barn visits, but more than 90% of my work is done remotely, working with clients worldwide.  I consult via phone, email, and Skype.

One of my specialties is the ability to feel areas of discomfort in a horse’s body.  This has proved to be helpful in many cases in which a horse’s veterinarian has been unable to precisely pinpoint the source of his pain.  I never diagnose or prescribe, but I can often be helpful in providing a roadmap for the horse’s hands-on practitioner.

I also work with riders to help them understand the reasons behind puzzling behavioral or training difficulties, and can teach them how to incorporate telepathy into their daily work with their horse, for their mutual benefit.  I have helped many less-than-confident riders to enhance their relationships with their horses


Michelle Twohig   DayWithMyHorse Photography, USA

Location:  Pacific Northwest (but can travel in certain circumstances)


Phone:  425-747-4115

Click here for Michelle’s website

What Michelle does:   I capture the human/equine bond in artful ways and find the art in horses simply being horses

Qualifications: 30 years as a graphic/web designer and photo editor, and 3 years as an equine lifestyle photographer (Professional member of Equine Photographers Network)

About Michelle:  My vision is to make the world a healthier place for horses by increasing the perception of their inherent value and benefits to human potential.  I envision a medical field prescribing time with horses rather than drugs, and an evolved horse “industry” based on a deep respect for the nature, needs and language of horses. What makes me different from many equine photographers is that I capture the beauty in many more things about a horse than what performance and sales agendas have defined as “perfect”. The beauty I see is when the horse is allowed to be a horse, and the perfection I see is in the bonds they’re willing to form. . I see my skillset and interests as being a good fit with any therapist who could benefit by an artful, compelling visual documentation of their services—whether as an additional offering for their client or for self-promotional purposes.   (Jenny: It’s Michelle’s mission that has me including her in this list, even though it is a bit of a stretch.  Please do not think that this is carte blanche for equine photographers, this is a list of alternative therapists.)

About Sarah:   Animals have always been the love of my life, and in the past 12 years I have been privileged to have horses in my life.  They have been and continue to be the best teachers I have!  After a rather circuitous route, I finally followed my heart’s desire and became a veterinary naturopath and homeopath.  It is my conviction that treatment of any kind can only be effective if it is based upon the laws of nature, and to that end I employ only integrative holistic modalities, as well as teaching others how to do so with their animals.  I also have extensive experience in the holistic treatment of equine founder situations, including access to a wonderful barefoot trimmer who is experienced in hoof pathologies.  If you are not in my area, she and I can work together on a consulting basis to help your horse recover from founder, navicular and any related issue.  I am passionate about educating toward the elimination of equine metabolic syndrome as well as continuing research into the etiologies and completely holistic treatment of these related conditions.   (Disclaimer:  I am not a licensed veterinarian and as such do not diagnose or treat disease as conventionally defined.)
