I am a firm believer in equine massage for maintaining and improving my horse's overall soundness, both physically and mentally. Janine worked with my horse for several years, mostly to deal with her stiff stifles, but also because Teddy deserved it as she was an athlete and I felt she earned it due to all her hard work to please me, which she always excelled at. The horse I had before Teddy had, sadly, gone lame, and I always felt like if I had met Janine when I had that horse, she would have found problems, pointed them out to me, and treated them before they became permanent. The time to find and treat an issue is before it becomes chronic and massage therapy is a great way to accomplish that. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure ~ Benjamin Franklin.
