My latest video project

videoI was hired by a local equine body worker last week for a promotional piece about his practice. His name is Jeff Moore and he works locally around Portland. The day I was with him, he worked on a horse that had flipped, a horse with a previous shoulder fracture, and a horse with a possible stifle injury. It was really fascinating to watch. For me on a limited income, body work for my horse is a bit out of reach at $135 an hour, with sessions sometimes up to 2 hours. It seemed very effective and Jeff was so knowledgeable. We are working out a trade for services, so next week he is coming out to Lundervold to take a look at Maddy. I want him to evaluate my saddle fit and see if the coffin bone fracture two years ago has any residual effects on her movement. Have any of my blogger friends used a body worker? Would love to hear about your experiences. Also critiques of the video clip are welcome...it is still pending approval from Jeff, so I am sure he would appreciate any feedback from viewers as well.

I've had both good and bad experiences with chiropractic (not body work per se). As with all specialists, there are good and bad ones. I'd decide based on references and by watching the person work - are the horses happy and relaxed or tense and worried - and by the results afterwards. I have a wonderful chiropractor/massager who has really turned things around for one of my horses. Even my wariest horses love her. She is also a vet, which means that she knows what chiropractic can do and not do and also when issues require veterinary attention.

Wow! You did a great job on that video! Sounds like he has the perfect job, eh? Helping horses AND making $135 an hour! I need to change professions....
Wish I could afford that for Jackson. I'd love to see the results even tho' Jackson doesn't seem to have any real issues. It would be interesting to see the effect it would have on him--especially a postive one! That's cool that you can get that for Maddy!

Great job on that video! We can really concentrate on what his hands are doing, and you change views at just the right speed.

You did a great job with the video! Smooth transitions and I like what was being said. The music was also very appropriate and complimented the piece very well.

Very nice video work! - the chestnut horse's feet need a trim it appears, and that is a little distracting from the body work per se. I might cut that foot shot out and sub in something else. This equine body worker seems to have a method and skill. I've had one who did not; who was just tapping around apparently at random and talking about the horse's emotions...I felt ripped off.
