Our aim is to provide high quality education, with practical skills aimed at developing excellent feel, technique and an eye for evaluation.
EQUESTRICARE EQUINE SPORTS MASSAGE CERTIFICATE
73% of clients surveyed said that the most important thing for them when looking for a therapist was reputation. So why not start out in your career with an exquisite one?
The aim of the certificate in equine sports massage is to provide those wanting to become therapists, or those who just want to gain more skills in equine massage, with the latest tools and techniques of the trade, as well as essential anatomical and evaluational knowledge and skills.
Most other courses available focus a large proportion of the practical workshops dedicated to classroom learning. Our view is that this type of learning is best accomplished at a pace set by the individual, and therefore we dedicate most of our practical workshops to developing good feel, technique and a good eye for evaluation.
The program contains a large amount of theory and self guided study, with practical intensives, case studies and one on one guidance.
Our commitment is to developing practitioners with high quality skills in the field of equine sports therapy, and developing therapists that not only have good technique and feel, but also a wealth of background knowledge on anatomy, biomechanics, conformation and exercise physiology.

"I can't thank Jessica enough for making this Equine Sports Massage Certificate available. I had been toiling
with the idea of learning sports massage over the last couple of years but the courses offered required flying to
another state or only run in WA every so often. Jessica and Equestricare is one of the most highly regarded therapy
businesses in WA and the chance to learn with her was I thought, going to be a fantastic opportunity. The course so
far has not disappointed me, it is presented in a way that students are always hungry for more, no boring lectures here!
Practical modules are run in a way that anyone can come along and learn the topic they are interested in as a one off.
The level of student support is exactly what I was looking for. Jessica is never too busy to answer any questions or show
a technique. I can highly recommend this course to anyone that is interested in either being a Certified Massage Therapist
or just for expanding personal knowledge. There are so many interesting topics to cover. The Equine Sports massage
certificate course is awesome!"
"In the short time I have been doing the Equine Sports Massage Certificate with Equestricare I have already learnt about
conformation, anatomy, biomechanics, bitting, teeth and much more. Jess provides a good mix of theory and practical work and is
always there to answer any of our questions about anything horsey! We have already had a range of knowledgeable guest speakers
including Dr Kerry Ridgway from the U.S and even more speakers come.
The course is well spread throughout the whole year, that your still able to work and learn, and we cover lots of very
interesting subjects, not just a whole year about massage."
