For the past 10 years I’ve been working my way through the horse world, not as a horse person so much, but as a body worker. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing education a horse person could ever ask for and I’m not talking about the education that trained me to become the body worker I have become.
I knew very little about horses when I entered the world as an equine sport therapist. I knew I loved them and I wanted to work with them, and I knew how.
The education I received at the BC College of Equine Therapy gave me the knowledge to do my job. The lifetime of dog grooming gave me the visual training to see the bodies the way I do, but the actual knowledge of horses came from working with people so incredibly devoted to working with their horses.
I will miss the life I’m leaving behind. I will miss everyone I’ve worked with. I will miss the way the horses look when they melt under my fingers. With that said I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to just be a horse person and play with all the concepts I’ve watched other people play with for years.
