Ali - Equiform - South West Slopes region (Jugiong) - 0409 228 991

Hi, My name is Ali.

I’ve been involved with horses all my life, growing up around the thoroughbred industry. I dabbled in a little of whatever interested me, then in my late 20’s discovered polocrosse and became hooked. Through polocrosse, I came across the work of Kim Horne, of Equiphoria Equine Massage.

Over the last 15 years, I have studied equine sports massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, but was never really satisfied with my results. When the opportunity rose to study with Kim, having used her services on our own horses, I grabbed it with both hands!

Moving forward into 2020, I believe that to perform at their best, our horses as athletes need to be in top shape. With their muscles working correctly, and their skeletal system aligned correctly, the sky is the limit!

Whether you aim to perform at the top of your chosen sport, or want to be safe and happy on the trails with your horse, Equiform can help you achieve those goals.

Form, shape, confirmation, structure - without this in the right place, we cannot achieve perfect function.

Sam - Monaco Equine - Braidwood Region - 0421 429 993

Hello, my name is Sam.

I have been involved with horses all my life and my passion for horses began long before I could talk about it - back when I could just sit up and my aunty used to hold me on the saddle in front of her as she rode me around the paddock.

I’ve always known I wanted to be involved with them. I wanted horses to be my career, not just a hobby.

While the specifics of that dream changed over time - I wanted to be everything from an equine vet to an Olympic event rider - the genuine love for horses never shifted. I am offering equine bodywork sessions focusing specifically on the musculo-skeletal system. The muscular system is what holds the skeleton together and both are invaluable to your horse both feeling and performing at their best. Horse’s are athletes and require regular “tune-ups” to keep them fit and healthy. Regular bodywork sessions are kind of like servicing your car.

No matter your discipline or experience, horse-owners all have one thing in common: we love our horses and we hate it when they are in pain or uncomfortable. You know immediately when there’s an issue - you know your horse better than anyone. Helping horses is my passion and I will work with you to relieve your horse’s discomfort.

So let’s get your horses feeling their best! If you’re interested in booking a session, give me a call on 0421 429 993 or email monacoequine@gmail.com

Ashley - AG Equine - ACT Region - 0425 885 974

Hey, I'm Ashley,

OK - A bit about myself and my services. I was close to born in a stable and have been around horses my whole life. For the last 20 years I have bred and competed horses. They are in my blood! My fun with horses is showing Quarterhorses and Paints competitively. There is so much time and effort and work getting them to competition that I need to have them being able to perform at their best and be as happy as they can possibly be. This interest started many years ago and followed through with racehorses too.

Everything I do is aimed at relieving any stress, trauma or pain your horse may be experiencing in their body. I do this by first using gentle massage to warm up and relax the horse’s muscles, followed by some deeper work to relieve any tension and knots. Afterwards, if necessary, I will perform some non-invasive skeletal alignments. I aim to work with the horse’s body, not against it, and everything I do is about encouraging the body to fix and align itself: I’m just there to give it a helping hand.

I feel blessed now as I have gained the skills to help these athletes who have been instrumental in shaping who I am today and who I’ve worked with all my life. I am now able to give back to them and help them to perform at their best and enjoy doing so.

Because I also breed horses I have an excellent understanding of correct conformation of a horse which helps me to gauge (most of the time) where some body issues will be.

I focus on massage therapy and releasing tight muscles to help keep them supple so they can perform correctly and freely. The muscles are what keep the skeleton aligned and support the entire structure of the horse. If it is needed I can also perform any necessary non-invasive alignments. Keeping a horses musculoskeletal system in the best possible condition helps to prevent injury and & keeps your horse from becoming rigid and working incorrectly. These animals are athletes and are best kept like everything else... The difference being from humans that they don’t complain as much and can’t tell you when they need their bodies tuned.

Regular bodywork on the main systems of the horse provides your horse the best chance of preventing dysfunction and injury.

If you are anything like me then knowing your horse is happy, makes you happy! Contact me if you want to know how I can help your horse be at it’s best and as happy as they can be! I would love to meet you and your horses and find out how I can fit help your team!

Claudia - Southern Highlands - 0422 139 357

My name is Claudia. I have been around horses since a young age and have been a part of the business side of the horse industry as a rider and a groom from the age of 16.

Now, I have a full time job as a working pupil and show groom for two professional show jumpers in the Southern Highlands. This job allows me to expand my opportunities within the horse world as well as increase my knowledge of how horses operate.

I decided to start training with Kim to open up a new career path for myself and be able to learn a way of helping horses perform at their best. I am currently practicing in the Moss Vale, NSW, region and basing myself at Rosthwaite Farm.

My initial aim when I began studying was to assist as many horses as possible to feel fit and healthy. Seeing the results in the horses is what makes me love the job even more. The more horses that walk away happy, the more I want to keep doing it.

At the end of the day a happy horse is the most important thing.

Ebony - Peak Equine Services - ACT Region - 0466 900 292

I have a passion for horses and have been around them my whole life. I have competed in a wide variety of disciplines including Pony club, eventing, show jumping, hacking, polocrosse and more recently barrel racing. Looking after my horses and keeping them in peak physical condition so they are comfortable and can perform at their best is always my priority.

Bodywork has a major role to play to ensure the horses muscles are working correctly and their skeleton is aligned. This allows the horse to perform at their best.

My most recent accomplishment was working in the USA for three months creating and implementing a vigorous riding program over a 10-week period. The success of this program was directly related to the health of each of the horses allowing them to perform at their peak.

I believe all disciplines can benefit from equine bodywork, from the jump ring to the polocrosse field or on your trails, I can help to ensure your horse is happy and healthy. Being involved in many disciplines, I have the knowledge of the different workloads they carry and how they need to perform in your chosen sport.

My sessions take approximately 45mins and include a full body massage to identify tight and sore spots and to release muscle tension. I then follow this up with any skeletal alignments to ensure your horse can move the way it should.

At Peak Equine Services my aim is to help keep your horses working at peak performance by keeping them at peak comfort and peak alignment!

Contact me today on 0466 900 292 to book a session or to discuss any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you.
