She has worked with horses of all disciplines, from retired to international competition horses. Charlotte is passionate about her work & this is recognised by her clients & the improvement in their horses & ponies performance.Charlotte's background plays a key role in her work as an ESMT. She grew up working with young horses, breaking in & training them ready for competition. She went on to show-jump successfully at a national level & worked for Ellen Whitaker in the UK & across Europe.Charlotte also has experience in working with dressage horses. Importing horses from Germany to bring on & sell, including on behalf of clients. She became interested in equine massage when she noticed the effects on her own horses.Benefits of equine sports massage: • Helps maintain & improve range of motion through improved suppleness & circulation. • Promotes healing by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles, carrying away excessive fluids & toxins in the lymphatic & circulatory system. • Produces endorphin's, which are natural painkillers.• Pre-event, it can help to loosen up muscles ready for competition & can help to relax & calm excitable horses, giving a competitor that extra edge that can be needed.• Post-event, massage can relieve stiffness & reduce any discomfort a horse might be experiencing after a tough competition. Equine massage on a regular basis for competition horses is advisable to help keep your horse on top form & reduce the risk of injury.• For a horse on box rest it is also worthwhile. Being stood still compromises the lymphatic system & flow, a massage will encourage the flow to improve & help to drain away excess fluids & toxins. It can help the horse to relax & feel better with the release of endorphin's experienced during massage.• Retired horses or those doing less work will benefit from an all round massage. When the muscles are not in as much work they can begin to get stiff & tight. A maintenance massage will help to keep your horse moving comfortably.
