This website deals with the following topics:
for both equine and human, a non-invasive, effective bodywork modality that can be useful in the treatment of trauma,
soft tissue injuries, chronic and acute injuries, emotional issues, and much more. It accesses the central nervous system
and supports the body's self-corrective response.
*Horses at Liberty Foundation Training, another arm of OrthoHorse, complements Equine Ortho-Bionomy as it is a study of the way
horses communicate with one another and teaches us how we can communicate with them in a way they understand. I also work
with people on the way their energy impacts whether they are effective in their work with horses. This way of working with
horses allows for relationships between people and equines to flourish and leads to better communication and performance.
As a trainer and lifelong student of horsemanship and bodywork, I bring this work, to you, based on basic dynamics that horses engage in naturally that are vital to their survival and successful
energetic human interaction. The initial work is done without any tack or fences, ultimately creating a more willing partnership.
Body Language, combines these two studies into one:
Giving a voice to the unspoken language of horses, through body language,
bodywork & liberty training
Ortho-Bionomy was founded by Dr. Arthur Pauls, a Canadian osteopath, who outlined
the principles by which the work is practiced today that guide both the physical work and the energetic work. The
word Ortho-Bionomy comes from the Greek - "ortho" meaning correct, "bio" meaning life, and "nomy" meaning study.
I named this website "Orthohorse" which literally translates to "correct horse." The "correct"
in Ortho-Bionomy refers to the body's ability to self-correct, which is inherent in all living things. The horse work
is an adaptation of Ortho-Bionomy, which was originally designed for people. I also work on people.
Ortho-Bionomy is a comprehensive bodywork study that addresses all body systems and relies
on the body's innate ability to self-correct. This is what distinguishes it from other forms of bodywork. Ideally, the
self-corrective mechanism becomes nourished through the work and can operate on its own, without continual sessions. This
will depend, of course, on the health of the organism and its ability to process. The work can have deep and lasting
effects as the body grows more empowered and self-healing.
I invite you to also go to the Horses at Liberty Foundation Training page which will be added to
on a regular basis. If we learn and practice these equine dynamics at liberty from our hearts, we become better leaders able
to create a magnetic bond with our horses.
Check it out! Equine Ortho-Bionomy + Holistic Liberty Training combine the body's
self-corrective language with the language of the herd. They are a
winning combination for keeping your equine athlete healthy and in
"magnetic connection" with you. Contact me today to schedule an
assessment that will cover these two approaches in one -
