After booking an initial appointment with Horsepower, you will be given or emailed a welcome pack. This will include a welcome letter with all the details you will need prior to your first treatment. It will also include an initial history and intake form for completion at least one week prior to your first session.
PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT
Please ensure the horse has been caught or stabled and is dry/groomed. Avoid booking times of the day which may be distracting for the horse; for example, feed time or when his stable mate is not present.
Upon arrival, a comprehensive
in-hand assessment will take place to assess
the horse. If there is a particular issue relating to ridden work, I may ask you to show me. This should take approximately
30-40 minutes before starting the bodywork.
After the initial session you may not be required to be present during the treatment, however, someone capable of trotting up the horse at the beginning of the session will be required.
An initial bodywork session will be conducted to introduce your horse to the bodywork techniques used. A discussion of targeted exercise and a demonstration of home massage and stretching will be conducted to aid the progression of the sessions between visits (if applicable). Brief or pictorial report to follow.
