This is a  great opportunity for anyone looking to take both courses! Students will evaluate the whole horse and quickly determine cranial, cervical and entire body dysfunctions via the CranioSacral System. Students will learn which techniques will  resolve specific issues. Students are taught to work with the core energy of the horse and how to feel the central base rhythm of the equine body.

In this 4-Day Clinic we build upon the Equine CranioSacral System & IET EQ CST Techniques and explore into the deeper governing control over all aspects of the equine body. We explore deeper melding techniques and students learn new and illuminating diagnostic skills that are both intuitive, and yet unequivocally verifiable.
