About the Author
JIM MASTERSON, the official Equine Massage Therapist for the USEF Endurance Team 2006–14, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World Cup, Pan American, and World Games competitions, developed a system in which the horse participates in the bodywork 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 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 books Beyond Horse Massage and The Dressage Horse Optimized and the DVDs Beyond Horse Massage and Dressage Movements Revealed. He teaches Masterson Method® seminars and advanced courses to horse owners, trainers, and therapists worldwide (mastersonmethod.com).
