Peak performance for horse and rider

I offer single sessions and encourage regular sessions (monthly) to help release restrictions that come up during training once a certain balance has been achieved. Regular sessions are an excellent way to monitor progress, catch issues early, and help your horse recover more quickly. 

I will never forget the day my sweet Dutch Warmblood, Niko was diagnosed with a nearly ruptured medial collateral ligament. Vets predicted that he would only have a 50/50 chance of making a full recovery. That’s when I contacted Kerstin Tracy. We faithfully worked with Kersti throughout Niko’s difficult rehab process, and I am humbled to say that it has now been two years and Niko has made a full recovery!

There are many facets to his recovery plan, and many people to thank, though Kerstin has been one of the strongest forces in his journey back. She approached him with the most genuine compassion and utilized her skills to help his body restore and heal itself.

As Niko took the time he needed and deserved, I met my Hanoverian, Noelle. Although Noelle came into my life sound, she was an older horse, and I really wanted to offer her body something that would help her compete in the sport she loves for as long as heart desired. So, I asked Kerstin to start treating Noelle, too and the outcomes have been extraordinary! I immediately noticed a true softening and suppleness to her entire body. Her immune system strengthened, her joints loosened, and her happiness flourished.

As an Amateur Owner, I find it truly an honor to give back to the horses who give so much to me, so Kerstin will always remain one of the most important people on our team.

My recommendation is to allow for three sessions to asses the horse's responses to treatment.

If the sessions are aiming to change behavior it is important to understand that permanent changes in behavior take time. The horse must learn how to live with its new change physical body and physiology.

Initial Session: $140.00

Follow-up Sessions: $120.00

Thanks ever so much. The best thing I ever spent my money on.

Don’t forget to book sessions for yourself as your misalignments need to be compensated by your horse…You will love the feel of balance within yourself and with your horse.

scheduling INFO

If you are ready to schedule an Equine CranioSacral Bodywork appointment for your horse(s), please contact me via email at kerstin@kerstintracy.com, phone (text or call) at 775.400.0058 or click below.

EQUINE CRANIOSACRAL SESSIONS include:

  • A full history taken at the initial session

  • Assessment of biomechanics, tissues and craniosacral system of the horse

  • Bodywork to address the restrictions found

  • A full report in writing including pre- and post session photos can be received per request. Any important information, such as articles that will be of interest to you, will be attached to the session notes

I will neither diagnose nor replace vet care. 

 

Working with your horse is very special to me.

Here are some requests and tips to make the best of a session:  

  • The time spend with the horse is sacred. Please keep distractions at a minimum.

  • As much as I love to catch up with the owner of the horse, once I start connecting with your horse, I need to be able to listen to your horse's feedback.

  • If possible I prefer a round pen or the stall for the session. This way your horse can move if necessary.

  • Provide a non-slip surface if stall or round pen are not available.

  • You do not need to be available to hold the horse. Only on occasions will I ask for your support.

  • Please have someone available to hand-walk your horse after the session for about 20 minutes. This will really help integrate the changes of the session.

  • IMPORTANT: I recommend a 48 hour period of rest for your horse after the session with hand-walking or turn-turn out only. The deep changes that may occur around the nervous system need a bit of time to be integrated. Please keep that in mind for scheduling.

 

CANCELLATION/LATE POLICY:

In my desire to be effective and fair to all of my clients and out of consideration for my time and travel, I have adopted the following policies:

  • 24 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment.

  • If you are unable to give  24 hours advance notice you will be charged the full amount of the session.

Even though I will come to your barn to treat your horse, the following policies still apply:

No-shows
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show”. They will be charged for their “missed” appointment and future service will be denied until payment is made.

Arriving late
Appointment times have been arranged specifically for you. If you arrive late your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, I will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session.
 

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING OF SERVICE TO YOU AND YOUR HORSE.
