For as long as I can remember, horses have been my first love. Pony
Club gymkhanas have now been replaced with an avid interest in dressage,
and I owe a great debt to my very special Russian Warmblood, Merlot,
who has taught me so much - and qualified us both for the British
Riding Clubs Dressage Championships no less than three times.
As with humans, increasing
age has meant Merlot is starting to become a little stiff, especially
on cold winter mornings - so this encouraged me to look for ‘something’ to
with Bowen, walking downhill is much easier and those first steps
out of the stable in the morning are definitely much freer. Click

Bowen Technique for horses.
