My name is Joanne O’Shea and I am a graduate student of the Equine Integrative Support therapies training course. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. It certainly was an eye opening learning experience for me and It provided me with a very valuable education, that I believe to be lacking in the equine industry. On signing up for the course I have assumed it would be solely focused on massage therapy and massage techniques but this is only one aspect of it. The course applies a very holistic approach, taking the whole horse into consideration. This course is a comprehensive study of equine science in effect, as well as being a very comprehensive massage therapy course. The structure of the course with a large number of both assignments and case studies combined with the study units and the students own research that needs to be done, gives the student a comprehensive understanding of equine therapy and you will graduate from this course very well equipped as an equine therapist. The course tutor Therese Murphy, is beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most knowledgeable and experienced equine professional that I have ever come across in my lifetime and I am honoured to have had to opportunity to learn from her. She is a wonderful equine educator and I am hugely indebted to her, for helping me with many equine queries. She is always available for top class advice. I would recommend this course 100%. I have learned an unreal amount of mind blowing information as well as in depth massage therapy.
