I have always have a love for horses ever since I was a small child and experienced my first pony ride aboard Topaz when I was 9 years old a beautiful little baymare with a heart of gold, and spent many a day over the years enjoying the disciplines of dressage, showjumping, cross country and point to point on both my own and other peoples horses. I have also always owned dogs, particularly gun dog breeds. I firstly became a human physio and have worked at the top level within professional sports for many years, and decided to gravitate back towards my first love of the animals a few years ago and completed the equine bodyworkers course, and am looking to continue this line of work into the future.

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.

Location: I live and work in the Midlands of England. I am based on the Nottingham/ Derbyshire border  but travel out to Lincolnshire and Leicestershire regularly.

Facebook: Bowen for Humans and Horses and group ‘ Holistically Happy Healthy Horses’.

About Julie:   I treat people with Bowen therapy and horses with its equivalent;  Equine Muscle Release Therapy (EMRT). I am also qualified in EMMETT for horses, Reike and Quantum Touch energy healing modalities and EFT ( Emotional Freedom Technique).

I regularly take training in Classical Groundwork skills with Thirza Hendriks from the Netherlands, so I can help riders rehabilitate their horses too. I am also an Alignment riding Therapist (ART) which helps riders become straighter and more in balance with their horses, via  awareness and structural integrative exercises, both dismounted and mounted. I run regular workshops in ART.

I am passionate about animal welfare and helping horses and their riders have a deeper understanding of each other. I also want to give the horse a voice and spread awareness of new research, especially of the anomalies found by Sharon May Davis in her dissections ( which I have attended), which affects the way we need to work our horses for long term soundness, and in some cases renders the horse unable to work as we would wish, leading to abuse.

I am passionate about horse and human biomechanics and therapies and am constantly learning.

I am also completing a Mindfulness practitioner course, which helps me connect more deeply with my own horses.

I am also author of the upcoming book ‘What Horses Really Want’.

About Lea and Smart Bowen: We run a training college that is nationally accredited in Bowen Therapy, providing human, equine and small animal programs.   Brian Smart my husband and I own and operate the college and engage instructors in various locations to facilitate the training along with ourselves.   I started life as a horse owner, and learned over time that I neither owned the horse nor did they own me, it was a relationship of mutual acceptance and companionship.     However, as I had provided my companion with a lifestyle extraordinary to that which they had naturally evolved in, it was up to me to make sure that in every quarter that I gave them the best of what they required to function and live optimally.    My journey began as an Animal Technician, which later evolved into a Senior Veterinary Nurse, and to this I added Veterinary Homeopathy, Bowen Therapy, Red Light Therapy, Tissue Salts and so much more.  I am currently completing an Adv. Dip in Naturopathy/Herbal Medicine, and studying at the same time Equine Herbal Medicine….the journey never really ends!      With formal backgrounds in science I pertain to look outwardly at nature for the answers to health where possible and practical.

We are passionate about : Equine welfare and health.   For me the health of the horse begins in the home, meaning that the people who chose to have horse/s as their animal companions become responsible for the health and welfare of that horse or horses on every level.    Being able to provide mental, emotional and physical wellbeing to their animal companions is paramount in the relationship between animal and man, especially when they take them from their natural environment and place them in domesticity.   We teach people how to maintain their own horses by using Bowen Therapy, but as a qualified therapist, my role is about educating people how to provide this on many levels.

About Verm-X:   is a 100% natural formulation for the control of intestinal hygiene. Verm-X is fed over a period of time (see individual pack for details) and works to create an environment in the gut and digestive system that is able to eradicate and expel any intestinal challenges offering natural and daily protection. Unlike conventional pharmaceutical products, that act with more of a purging effect, Verm-X works more gently as with the regular feeding of Verm-X the environment Verm-X builds will stay maintained throughout the year giving your animals constant protection. You cannot stop your animals from picking up intestinal challenges; the key is stopping them from settling and doing their damage.
