Testimonial from Alexandra Bennett, Owner of Barking Princess:
Q&A with Lachlan Hughson, Equine Levels 1-3 graduate:
Q: Why did you decide on RMSAAM courses?
Lachlan: I wanted to undertake a course that focused exclusively on horses and was close to Denver – plus the opportunity to learn and work with rescued and abused horses through Zuma’s was also very important to me.
Q: Which courses have you completed?
Lachlan: Equine Massage Therapy – Levels 1, 2, 3.
Q: What would you like to say about the RMSAAM instructors and the course material?
Lachlan: The material presented for all three levels supported the hands-on experience with the horses themselves. The materials give the student a broad framework to understand the horse’s body and how massage can help them in many ways.
Q: How have you applied the knowledge you learned from these courses in your profession?
Lachlan: Yes – as both an equine massage therapist and as a barefoot trimmer for horses.
Q: How has RMSAAM helped to enhance your career?
Lachlan: It has given me a qualification that is well recognized in the industry, especially in Colorado, and introduced me to a range of equine practitioners I would probably never have met.
Q: Who can benefit from RMSAAM’s courses?
Lachlan: Anyone who has an interest in horses – whether that is as a massage therapist, a rider, a vet, or other service/modality provider. Understanding the horse and how beneficial touch can be to their mind, emotions and body will only help you better understand how to communicate with your horse in a range of different circumstances.
Q: What other RMSAAM classes do you plan to attend?
Lachlan: Craniosacral in the near term.
