  • Career Profile – Jason Deer – Racehorse specific Integrated support Therapy

    • 07,Dec 2022
    I aim to promote equine massage therapies as an integral part of all horse training programs. Improving their performance, recovery and ultimately enhancing their health and wellbeing. I am currently working for leading national hunt trainer Willie Mullins. With this, I get to treat top class horses on a daily basis which is incredibly rewarding helping them perform at the highest level in racing. I also do treatments for numerous other trainers and enjoy treating both eventers and show jumpers as I compete myself regularly and understand the performance needed for horses to be competitive in the sport.

    What you studied with Equied and how you found the course

    I have been working with racehorses for the past 10 years and had been looking for additional courses to complete within the industry. I found the Equi Ed course online and following a call with Therese, I decided to complete Racehorse specific Integrated support Therapy. The blend of course content and hands-on experience suited me while I continued to work full time. The quantity of work and commitment needed from the student is a very high standard, however the help from Therese and her team was greatly appreciated in achieving this to a professional level. On completion of the course, I was very confident in my ability to help and make an impact in the industry as a whole.
