A week later: More good news! She was completely sound both directions at walk, trot, and canter. I’m so excited!
I received this lovely text from a client: “You are one of our Heroines and Angels with extraordinary skill, expertise, ethics/values/morals, great talent, and LOVE and DEVOTION to their happiness and health…A true and rare gem in our book.
“My thoroughbred absolutely adores Beverly. Every time she works on him I see instant and lasting results. She is careful to make sure I understand everything she is doing and why, and I always come away from a session feeling like I have learned something about my horse.”
“Being a “prelim pony” isn’t easy, but luckily Milo has Beverly’s help to stay healthy and performing at his best. I’ve come to Beverly with specific issues and she’s been instantly able to determine where he needs work, and I see instant results, whether it be a sticky leg yield, jumping issues, or an unbalanced counter canter. I am so amazed at her knowledge of the horse’s body and how to address the issues of performance horses. The soft look that my horse gets in his eyes when she works on him is priceless! I am so thankful that she is available both for barn calls and at a lot of the Area VI events to keep my 17 year old 14.2 pony jumping and going as well as he did years ago!”
“Lady is a 25 year old thoroughbred mare that has alot of mileage on her. Having gone the route of an advanced level event horse to a “dressage teacher” to a late in life rider, Lady still loves to keep working. But she needs someone to help keep her body in tune. From the moment Beverly met Lady, I could see she had a special way of not just knowing how to approach her, but what would work best for her. After Lady’s first session with Beverly, I had never felt Lady feel so soft and responsive. Beverly knows how to listen to both the horse and the owner. She is a truly special person.”
“Beverly has been working with our thoroughbred, King & our pony, Dancer for years. You couldn’t get two more polar opposites as far as personality and temperament than King & Dancer. She works so well with both hot and sensitive King & the laid-back, yet often stubborn Dancer. Both of these boys know Beverly well and they thoroughly enjoy their sessions with her. She has been instrumental in identifying & treating problems associated with: saddle fit, muscle soreness, and tightness. Even more importantly, she has educated both my girls as to routine, preventative exercises the girls can do on their own to help keep their horse’s body in the best shape possible thereby lowering the risk for injury. Regular massages from Beverly are a vital component of both King & Dancer’s training and performance program. Thanks, Bev!”
