Straightness Training Techniques for the Equine Practitioner with Marcia Wakeman

May 3 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


This one day CPD is aimed at equine manual therapists who would like to provide their clients with some in hand strengthening techniques to suit their needs.  Marcia Wakeman is a classical trainer who has taken part in international competitions in Working Equitation, and has produced and competed top level dressage horses.  She works closely with physiotherapists and musculoskeletal therapists to support the individual needs of horses; from rehabilitation to fine tuning high school manoeuvres.

We will be covering:  how to work via the bit and jaw to make global changes via relaxation of the TMJ and hyoid through the cervical vertebrae to the base of the neck.  We can then truly connect to and activate the hind quarters and core, and bring awareness to balance, suppleness and straightness through in hand walk exercises.

The method can be used as part of rehabilitation for strengthening and flexibility, including applications for the horse confined to the stable, and for enhancing performance through rehabilitation, and as part of progressive training for any sphere of work.
