Introducing a book that fills the gap that often exists between trainers, riders, and equine bodywork therapists when it comes to understanding how the dressage horse uses his body in performance. Learn hands-on ways we can help optimize his suppleness, flexibility, balance, and movement while easing the effects of common stressors on the musculoskeletal system—that is, make his body as perfect, effective, and pain-free as possible.

Join the creator of the Masterson Method of equine bodywork Jim Masterson, along with Masterson Method practitioner Coralie Hughes, Grand Prix dressage rider Betsy Steiner, and creator of Anatomy in Motion™ The Visible Horse Susan Harris as they clearly demonstrate steps we can take to make our horses comfortable, happy athletes for years to come.

Book Title: The Dressage Horse Optimized
Author: Jim Masterson
Publisher: Trafalgar Square
Format: Hardcover
ISBN: 9781570767227
Author Notes: Jim Masterson, Equine Massage-Bodywork Therapist for the 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014 USEF Endurance Teams, has worked on thousands of horses competing on the AA level and in FEI World Cup, Pan American, and World Equestrian Games competitions. Jim recognized early in his career that the horse exhibits certain visual, neurological responses to touch as the horse releases tension in the body. Using those responses to guide his work, he developed a system in which the horse participates in the process by showing the practitioner 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 equine body work that anyone can learn to use, that will improve performance and at the same time open new levels of communication and trust with the horse. Jim teaches his unique method to horse owners and therapists around the world.
