CATH ANTHONY MASTERSON METHOD CERTIFIED PRACTIONER - EQUINE BODY WORKER
The Masterson Method® - an Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork®
The Masterson Method® - Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork®, is a unique, interactive method of equine massage and bodywork 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. It is something you do with the horse, rather than to the horse. This participation and interaction is what makes the method fascinating for those who use it. In fact, if you do not allow the horse to participate, it does not work!

AS WITH ALL THERAPIES VETERINARY PERMISSION IS REQUIRED BEFORE A TREATMENT AND IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR VETERINARY CARE.
The bodywork which I do is to improve performance. I work to find areas of tension in the horse and help them release this in a relaxed state. Having released tension the focus then includes some work to improve the range of motion the horse has. Further information can be viewed on www.mastersonmethod.com
I can either come to you or your welcome to come here.
I usually work in a stable where possible so the horse has the freedom to move around but quite happy to work outside if this suits the horse better. After a treatment it is better if the horse can be turned out to move around or if this is not appropriate 15 mins walking is beneficial. Next day as a day off or if they need to be worked maybe just a gentle hack.
Reminder: In order to work on your horse you would need to seek Veterinary permission.
Having booked a session I will send you a form to complete before coming to work on a horse as this gives me the relevant contact details and some information/ history about the horse for my records.
Cath has been riding since she was 8 years old at the local riding school. Every spare minute was to try and get more pony time with non-horsey parents.
She has been around horses ever since and has now worked with them for 28 years. Having qualified as a riding instructor initially she went freelance teaching, looking after people’s horses and riding those which no one else wanted to get on! This grew into a family business consisting of a livery yard, small riding school and event Centre which is very much grassroots and a friendly place to be! Over the years she has also competed in several disciplines when producing her own horses to produce well rounded riding horses/ponies: SJ, Dressage, Hunter Trials, Horseball and Trec.
She has always had an interest in horse behaviour and “problem” horses and wanted to help them and their owners primarily looking at it from the horse’s point of view.
The Masterson Method has filled the “gap” enabling her to continue helping horses. Being non-invasive and following the responses of the horse was “perfect” - a technique which improves performance by working with the horse rather than doing it to the horse and looking at the whole horse.
