"Top line has improved the health of my horses. They are able to physically perform movements they couldn’t do before, such as turn on the forehand and bending on the circle. One of my horses could not be ridden and now she is pain free. Sara even got on her for me to help work out her issues. Another of my horses had chronic diarrhea but is fine now. I can’t say enough good things about the work Sara does with my horses."
"You will never find a more knowledgeable, ethical, or highly skilled practitioner. Sara has the lifetime of experience to be able to fully understand the demands placed on my horses and the best way to implement a plan that works for us. "
"To each situation, Sara brings the perspective of owner, rider, trainer, and equine massage therapist. This is by far the most well rounded approach for my horses and their wellbeing."
