One question you may be asking yourself might be: “Will I be able to expertly massage my horses?” I will tell you like I have told all the others who have asked that question, “YES!”
One comment I often receive is, “how complete, informative and easy to follow your program is, you have covered all the bases!” I believe you will be saying the same thing. This comprehensive program includes videos for those who learn through visuals like myself. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words as the saying goes.
The hallmark of my school is how quickly I return calls and emails when my students contact me; this simply means your questions get answered and you are not left hanging. If you are truly interested in helping your horses,then don't waste any more time! I am excited to present my unique study program to you and your loved ones.
Horses were meant to be ridden on the ground and not into the ground. I'll see you in the winners circle and at not the vet clinic.
Happy Trails Padnas!

TABLE OF CONTENTS
1 - EQUINE & HUMAN NUTRITION
This is valuable information! In this chapter, we cover 134 health problems horses face. We address what causes them, how to address them, and how to prevent them. We also cover human nutrition from Vitamin A to Vitamin U as well as natural minerals, what they do and what foods they can be found in.

No foot, no horse! This chapter has diagrams, articles and a better alternative to medal shoes. Based on the interest I receive from my students on this subject, I feel you will get a lot out of this section of the program. Please go to swedishhoofschool.com for interesting videos showing impact and how it impacts the Coffin Bone.
4 - EQUINE PERFORMANCE
You will become acquainted with fitness and training techniques, common problem areas of stress and injury from training and performance. You will also find an excellent article on tailoring your horses from a study done at Davis University in California.
5 - ANATOMY
Over the years, I have started to put less emphasis on memorization of the anatomy and more on the treatment itself. Still, it is good to have a working knowledge of horse anatomy. So...it is time to color your own horse and have a little fun and relaxation as well as understanding the function of the muscles.
6 - HOW MUSIC AFFECTS BOTH HORSE & HUMAN
This is a very informative and interesting study into how music affects strength, attitude, and performance. You will learn about what we call “The Anapestic Beat.” This a contrary beat to that of the heart. With proper understanding, both you and your horses will greatly benefit.
