Emma is a fully qualified and insured Equine Sports Massage Therapist based in Cambridgeshire. She also covers parts of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire.
Equine sports massage therapy (ESMT) utilises various clinical assessments followed by specific massage techniques, mobilisation and stretching. These techniques are non-invasive and, when correctly administered, will relieve muscle-related problems before they have chance to result in injury.
All horses/ponies can benefit from equine sports massage whether they are a top competition horse or a retired companion. Any activity has the potential to cause muscle soreness and stiffness. Using equine sports massage therapy as part of your horse’s maintenance regime will help prevent injury and increase performance.
As well as being an equine sports massage therapist, Emma is also a fully qualified and insured horse riding instructor. She has a keen interest in how the horse moves and how the rider affects the overall mechanics, causing imbalance and conformational issues so often seen during teaching sessions.
Emma has lots of experience with young, nervous and difficult horses. Her approach to work is quiet, calming, confident and patient.
Signs your horse may need a massage:
- Does your horse nip, kick or put its ears back when you approach with the saddle?
- Does your horse refuse to stand still when being tacked or mounted?
- Does your horse stumble, exhibit stiffness or lack bend?
- Does your horse have short, choppy, uneven strides or change lead in canter?
- Does your horse rush or stop at fences that would have normally happily been jumped easily?
- Does your horse buck or rear uncharacteristically?
- Do you have to constantly push your horse to walk out more?
- Do you have difficulty in getting your horse to engage and work in an outline?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, your horse may benefit from a massage.
