Signs of the horse Releasing Tension and Restriction

  • Because Masterson Method is a unique interactive form of Equine Bodywork the horse actively participates in the session. As a Masterson Method Practitioner I work under the horses natural “brace” response which enables the horses to release tension and restriction in a relaxed state. During a session signs of the horse releasing include :- ¬†weight shifting, fidgeting, scratching, chewing ropes, quivering of lips/muzzle, licking and chewing, sneezing and snorting, yawning, deep breathing, eyes closed and head very low, the horse lies down. These are all signs that the horse is letting go of tension and actively participating in the session.
