Balance 4 Horse and Rider

Horses perform best when their physical and emotional attitude is in balance.  You ride best when your physical and emotional attitude is in balance.

To achieve this balance for the horse and rider,I uses a combination of Emmett technique, and good horsemanship.



What is the Emmett Technique?

The Emmett Technique is a gentle, effective and safe muscle release therapy. It helps to address pain and discomfort, improves performance and promotes a positive emotional/behavioural state in horse and rider.

I use the Emmett Technique, a unique Australian body therapy created by Ross Emmett.  It may produce instantaneous results, improve recovery and assist you in achieving peak performance for both horse and rider.

How does Emmett work?

It involves the application of light finger pressure to specific points referred to as “Emmett Points” which stimulate the body’s ability to change muscle tension and flexibility. As well as the ability to directly influence muscle action, these points may have a memory and emotional attachment.

This stimulation is registered by the nervous system and the brain responds by sending new instructions back through the body.

It can be effectively used to speed up recovery after injury or as a maintenance program to maximize performance for all disciplines.


What is good horsemanship?

A horse will recognize if you are a confident, consistent and kind leader.

If they find this, they will give you trust and respect.

Horses have a highly developed communication system practiced through body language. My training methods use the horses natural instincts with an emphasis on timing, feel and consistency to achieve positive results for both horse and handler.
