Equine Body Worker Certification

  • Jul 28 - Aug 05
  • Location: Petaluma, CA, USA

Petaluma, CA with Debranne Pattillo, MEEBW with Cyndi Saling, EEBWII. The Equinology® Approach was developed by Debranne Pattillo, MEEBW, founder of Equinology Inc. and co-founder of the International Equine Body Worker Association. She has used this approach successfully for her own client base for over 25 years, and has shared it with thousands of students, many of them already equine professionals, all over the world. This unique hands-on system addresses the whole body, implementing specific manual palpation methods to assess soft tissue and symmetry of muscle and structure, and utilizing detailed static and dynamic evaluation to inform the practitioner. Different bodywork techniques — including sports massage, soft tissue mobilization, stretching, range of motion and positioning exercises, as well as “focal” point work (stress and trigger points) — are combined to provide optimal support for horses working in every discipline. Reflecting Debranne's passion for academic precision with regard to equine musculoskeletal anatomy, the Equinology® Approach stands out because it is comprehensively anatomically referenced. The Equinology® Approach continues to evolve from Debranne’s extensive experience and ongoing learning from her colleagues and mentors — both human and equine.

  • Location: Petaluma, CA, USA

Petaluma, CA. Dr. Kerry Ridgway, DVM presents this unique clinic which has been developed specifically for the advanced equine health care provider. This four day course focuses on the musculoskeletal system; a system often overlooked in the well being of the horse. Dr. Ridgway has had repeatable successful results using acupoints and advanced soft tissue mobilization techniques to investigate musculoskeletal issues on horses especially the performance horse. In this 4 day course, a portion of the course will focus on equine laterality, from the perspective of the treating veterinary clinician; the focus will be on the manifestations and pathology that the syndrome creates. Gait aberrations, muscle and myofascial patterns, tendonitis, desmitis, foot balance, saddle fit, degenerative joint disease, including facet joint pathology are all critical aspects of the "non-straightened" horse. The lectures will discuss therapies that best address the root causes of this condition. As always, Dr. Ridgway and his wife, Christine share insights and latest soft tissue techniques with the participants.
