BRCTH, 644 Lime Marl Lane, Millwood, VA 22646
Blue Ridge Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship (BRCTH) is hosting a workshop on the basics of the Masterson Method®, an integrated, multi-modality method of equine massage. It is a unique, interactive method in which you learn to recognize and use the responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. In contrast to most traditional modalities, it enables the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension.
The workshop is open to EAAT (equine-assisted activities and therapies) personnel, such as instructors, horse managers and volunteers who handle and care for therapy horses, as well as horse owners interested in learning how to improve the well-being and performance of their own horses. Attendees will first be introduced to the method during a morning lecture and demonstration and will then have the opportunity to practice simple, basic techniques on BRCTH horses and ponies in the afternoon. Further training opportunities will be discussed, including training to become a Masterson Method Equine Specialist for EAAT personnel who want to learn additional techniques as well as how to teach the basics to program participants in the therapeutic environment.
Participant fee - $75, includes lunch and snacks
