Evening Talk: SURE FOOT Pads and how they can help your horse with Wendy Murdoch

On Friday 3 May 7pm A face-to-face talk at Tilefield Equestrian, Brockenhurst, New Forest, UK
During this evening talk Wendy Murdoch will be explaining:
– What SURE FOOT pads are and how they can help any horse.
– How to safely offer SURE FOOT to horses
– How to observe horses while on the pads for postural and other changes

Imagine your horse becoming his own teacher and finding inner harmony. The SURE FOOT Program® gives you the tools to offer your horse this profoundly meaningful experience of self-learning. SURE FOOT is a unique and innovative Program, which uses the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Pads. It’s easy to learn. If you can safely pick up a hoof you can do SURE FOOT. You can give your horse the chance to change his posture, behavior, and movement while improving his balance, confidence, and performance in just a few minutes. More importantly, SURE FOOT will show you that, when given a voice, your horse will become engaged, present, and ready to work.

Wendy Murdoch is an internationally recognized equestrian instructor and clinician for over 30 years, author of several books and DVDs, and creator of the SURE FOOT Equine Stability Program® and Ride Like A Natural®. Wendy’s desire to understand the function of both horse and human, her curiosity, and her love of teaching capitalize on the most current learning theories. In this way, she is able to help both the horse and the rider.

Evening Talk: How are your horse's insides effecting their outsides? with Suz Crichton-Stuart

On Wednesday June 12: A face-to-face talk at Tilefield Equestrian, Brockenhurst, New Forest, UK

In Suz’s third talk here at Tilefield we will be taking another deep dive into the anatomy of our horses, this time into the organs within the ribcage and abdomen. What goes where, what does it do how does it all fit together and crucially how does pain and tension between the organs affect a horse’s comfort and performance?
Continuing the theme of empowering owners to see the horse as a whole body system through light hearted and accessible anatomical information, this evening with Suz promises to be as fun as the previous nights.

Suz is an experienced bodyworker and long term student of all things horse. Despite 17 years experience she is always actively learning, currently training at both the Vluggen School of Osteopathy and with Celeste Lazaris learning the Nerve Release Techniques.
Based on the borders of mid Wales, she teaches Equine Touch from her peaceful yard whilst also running a busy mobile bodywork practice. Using a gentle blend of bodywork, Equine Touch, craniosacral therapy and rehabilitative in hand work to set your horse up for long term soundness and joy in movement together.

Evening Talk: Equine Myofascial Kinetic Lines and their Link to Shoulder Girdle, Rib Cage and Pelvic Rotations with Christy DiColla

On Thursday 18 July 7pm A face-to-face talk at Tilefield Equestrian, Brockenhurst, New Forest, UK
Have you ever wondered about the “Myofascial Lines” that are currently trending on social media?
Do you feel like you’re constantly addressing symptoms and different issues without pinpointing the actual root cause?
Do you want an improved and updated “Equine Body Map” to help you make more informed decisions for your horse’s well-being?
Have you ever wondered why…..
– Why do we struggle to achieve long-lasting results in bodywork?
– Why is chronic lameness so prevalent among our beloved horses?
– Why does the right hip often seem misaligned?
– Why is the left shoulder typically elevated higher than the right?
– Why is it challenging to find saddles that fit your horse’s back?
– Why do horses exhibit more difficulty bending on one side than the other?
– Why does the right fore hoof commonly have more issues and a medial deviation on the right fetlock?

The answers to these questions may be answered by looking at Equine Myofascial Kinetic Lines imbalances.
Many have observed images taken from behind horses showing a seemingly more developed left side of the back and an atrophied right side. However, this might not always be the actual case.

The prevailing theory suggests that the entire rib cage tends to rotate either to the left or right relative to the pelvis and shoulder girdle.

By utilizing Neuro Fascial Conditioning™ and Rib Entrapment Syndrome Therapy™ methods, it is possible to align the Myofascial Kinetic Lines, balance the ribs with the shoulder girdle and pelvis, ultimately restoring natural balance in horses.

FEI-approved experienced instructor, Christy DiColla, has dedicated 10 years to studying and developing equine myofascial line protocols. She has condensed this wealth of information into comprehensible courses to provide horse owners with a clearer understanding of equine functional physiology.

Christy coined the term “Equine Rib Entrapment Syndrome” after noticing common asymmetry patterns in her practice. Her expertise spans various bodywork techniques such as myofascial structural integration and kinetic line balancing, neurofascial conditioning, electro-fascial stimulation, PEMF therapy, joint mobilization, Reiki master and her distinctive RIB ENTRAPMENT balancing method.
Her enthusiasm lies in imparting this knowledge to the equine community to contribute towards creating a better world for horses and the people who love them.
