JIM MASTERSON—equine massage therapist for the 2006, 2008. 2010, and 2012 USET Endurance Teams, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World, Pan American, Nations Cup and World Equestrian Games competitions—developed a system in which the horse participates in the bodywork process by showing where tension has accumulated, precisely how much pressure is needed to release it, and when it has been released. The result is an effective method of bodywork that anyone can learn to use to improve performance, while at the same time opening new levels of communication and trust with the horse. Jim is the author of the bestselling book Beyond Horse Massage and the DVD of the same name. He teaches Masterson Method seminars and advanced courses to horse owners, trainers, and therapists worldwide (mastersonmethod.com).
