Fairfield, Iowa – Nov. 21, 2019 – Jim Masterson, founder of the Masterson Method®, is traveling thousands of miles across New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa teaching integrative equine performance bodywork techniques and principles.

Masterson spent October in the United Kingdom before heading to Australia. He made a quick trip back to the United States presenting to standing-room-only crowds as a featured presenter at Equine Affaire in West Springfield, Massachusetts. While in Australia, Masterson held a weekend seminar at his old home base at the New South Wales Mounted Police Troop in Sydney.

A highlight of this international trip is Masterson’s featured presenter clinics at Equitana Auckland held at ASB Showgrounds in Epsom, New Zealand, Nov. 21-23.

“We will be doing Equitana and a Weekend Seminar in New Zealand for the first time,” Masterson said. “In total, we will be certifying nine new Masterson Method Certified Practitioners (MMCPs) in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa this trip.”

Equitana Auckland is the most comprehensive equine educational program in New Zealand. The four-day event features New Zealand’s best equine professionals and global superstars in eventing, show jumping, dressage, and natural horsemanship.

About the Masterson Method

The Masterson Method was developed by Jim Masterson after many years as a professional equine bodyworker. It is an interactive approach to equine massage in which the horse is an active participant. The practitioner learns to recognize and use the responses of the horse to their touch. Through the horse’s response the practitioner is able to locate and relieve tension in key junctions of the horse’s body that most affect performance. It is something done with the horse, rather than to the horse.

Anyone can learn The Masterson Method. For horse owners, horse care givers, and equestrians, the Masterson Method can deepen the bond between horse and human.  It is a significant way to improve performance, open new levels of communication, and develop the horse’s trust.

Countless testimonials tell the stories of horses and humans that have been forever transformed for the better by the Masterson Method. Read Masterson Method participants’ testimonials here.

Beyond Horse Massage: The Masterson Method Weekend Seminar-Workshop Is Coming to Mahan Farm

April 12-13, 2014

Beyond Horse Massage, a 2-day hands-on seminar-workshop, will be held at Mahan Farm in Tallahassee, FL.

In these hands-on workshops you’ll learn how to recognize and use the visual responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated stress in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. Jim Masterson has successfully taught these techniques to hundreds of owners, therapists and trainers worldwide, enabling them to open new levels of communication and relationship with their horses.

The Masterson Method is an innovative form of bodywork that relaxes the horse’s body and relieves his muscles, connective tissue, and structure of deep stress and pain.

Through the gentle and light manipulation of targeted Release Points, the movement of joints or junctions through a range of motion in a relaxed state, and studied observation of the horse’s responses (his reactions tell you what he is feeling), you’ll open doors to improved health and performance while enhancing communication – and your relationship – along the way.

The Beyond Horse Massage: The Masterson Method is an approved provider for continuing education by the NCBTMB.
