I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
I 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.
