WORKING WITH YOU TO KEEP YOUR HORSE HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PERFORMING
I can help you to hear your horses voice by carefully monitoring their ability to self-select and self-medicate from nature, supported by oils and wild herbs.
A fully qualified (to degree level) Equine Massage Therapist and Rehabilition practitioner, trained by the Equine Massage Academy at Bishop Burton Equine College .
One form of treatment does not always suit all horses and so I have studied in a range of subjects to offer an all round full therapy consultation using a variety of modalities
In order to provide a full head to toe therapy, I am able to use a full range of equipment that will support and assist with healing, rehabilitation and the longevity of treatment.
I am also working towards a Level 5 diploma in equine nutrition. Everything in the horse is connected in some way and so i feel it is vital to have an all round knowledge of every one of the horses systems in order to fully understand and help them perform at the optimum level. More on this to follow later.
On 27th June 2019, I received a phone call that every owner dreads, Oakley was found hopping lame around the field. The vet was called and after a mis -diagnosis from a vet we finally had him x-rayed and it wasn’t good news. Oakley had a bad mid body sesamoid fracture. I decided to go ahead with box rest and hoped he could be fixed with a operation, however, when they open Oakley’s leg up the fracture was far worst then first thought( he has a lot of hair line fractures that didn’t show on the X-ray). Tara stepped up and asked if she could spend time with Oakley using all natural products, light therapy, oils, herbs and massage. I have to admit before this I didn’t think this way of healing would help such a bad fracture and judging on how the vets were explaining this to me, I was convinced he would have to be PTS. Tara had only worked with Oakley for a matter of about a week before his next X-ray, this result still wasn’t good news and his chances of a recovery was very low. Tara didn’t give up hope and was very pleased with the way she felt Oakley was reacting to her sessions. Each night I got to the yard Tara was in with Oakley offering him difference natural oils, products and massages to keep him relaxed, she would talk me through what the products and oils did and how he would choose what he needed. It become very interesting to see him react the way he did. Tara had been now working with Oakley for around 10 weeks and the day I was dreading was upon us. It was X-ray day to see if we should continue his box rest or let him go. When the vet came out he took the X-ray and had to double look at the X-ray. He wasn’t sure the screen was working so took another X-ray and said to me ‘ I can’t believe this is the same bone, have I got the right leg’. Oakley’s leg had healed beyond anyone’s belief! I mentioned to him about Tara and his response was ‘ you have her to thank for giving you your horse back and I’m sure Oakley’s very greatful’. I asked if he believed in natural healing.. he said he did but was shocked by the result and this was all thanks to Tara’s commitment not only to Oakley but also to her work that she is so passionate about. Tara as a person is kind and caring and is very naturally talented around horses. She can make even the most stressed horse feel at ease. So again thank-you again Tara I owe you the world! ☺️Shannon Connolly
I really can't praise TLP enough for the amzing work that she has done with my mare. The way that Tara worked with my horse and the reaction she got from her was truly breathtaking (& emotional). With Tara's time, knowlegde and patience by the end of the session my horse had the sparkle back in her eyes. I truly cant thank her enough and would absolutely, highly recommend her, for any level of therapy that your horse needs.Diane Wileman

I can’t thank TLP enough for all the stuff she has done with my horse. She is by far the best thing since sliced bread. The way she worked with my horse for the many hours was amazing. She helped my horse get to the place it is today. I highly recommend! (Copied from Google reviews - ok so its slightly biased but I had to include it 😂) -Maisie-AnneMaisie Anne PriceDaughter 🥰
Tara is very friendly and professional. She carried out a full check of both my horses and explained fully what she was doing and showed me how to do some relaxation techniques before next visit Was great to see the horses relaxing. Would highly recommend and can't wait for the next visitMandy Thompson(Copied across from Facebook)
Tara worked on a horse I compete and unfortunately I wasnt there to watch the session. But was told Colin had a natural affinity to Tara and absolutely loved her working on him so much that he fell asleep! I had a flat work lesson the next day and Colin felt loose and supple throughout his body. And all of a sudden could really bend through his rib cage and neck which is something he normally finds quite difficult. Highly recommend Tara's work as the results speak for themselves.

Tara came to do a herbal session with my horse Daisy, she was very professional and explained everything to me. Daisy was really responsive to the session engaging in everything Tara had to offer, she has a history of ovary pain (fast forward several years and multiple failed veterinary treatments). I had found a supplement that was fantastic but after 6 months she was point blank refusing to eat it and was once again starting to show signs of pain and poor performance. We are I think 2 weeks post our visit and continuing to follow Tara's advice she is back to feeling comfortable again. I am looking forward to our next session and so happy to have found something that not only helps but is saving me an absolute fortune in supplements!Alice Darby Frampton(Copied over from Facebook)
I highly recommend Tara, she’s knowledgeable, professional, friendly and my cob absolutely adored her, he was so relaxed and chilled after his treatment! Looking forward to trying the applied herbal choicesJo Jenkins(Copied over from Facebook)
Thank you for the therapy on Maisie, I found everything you picked up was corresponding with how Maisie had been acting whilst ridden even down to how her saddle had been rubbing after putting on weight. It proved to be very beneficial for myself and Maisie, would highly recommend Taa and will definitely be a regular customer in the future, she was very kind and gentle with Maisie also. Maisie appreciated the sessions and relaxed after.Joane Woodruff
Thank you for giving Blue and I the opportunity to experience therapy with you. From the moment you met Blue you were extremely considerate to his needs with an extremely calming approach enabling Blue to put his gull trust in you and relax fully. You were able to read his body language so well enabling him communicate areas of pain and receive treatment. I could see his response and that he enjoyed the process and felt more comfortable after. He has ridden with more stretch and a more relaxed demeanor since receiving treatment. I also found your explanations of the procedure and demonstration highly informative and to a level that I could understand and see the difference before and after treatment. As for the treatment of Harry ... I was gobsmacked. As a horse, that is so extremely head shy that no one is able to touch between mid neck and mid face, I could not believe you were able to treat his entire neck, including the base of his ears. Had I not observed it I wouldn't have believed it. He looked like a different horse after due to how he carried his head with so much less tension. Even today he still seems more comfortable through his neck. Magic hands.Jac Smith
