Welcome to Happier Pony Equine Massage, LLC
Cat Needham, Certified ESMT (Equissage)
Hi! I’m Cat, and I love to make ponies happier! I truly believe that massage is a fantastic way to supplement good horse care. Equine massage is excellent for performance as well as overall well-being, and whether your horse is a finely-tuned athlete, a weekend warrior, or a steady Eddie who occasionally meanders slowly down a trail, all can benefit! Massage is an often overlooked component of aiding horses with:
-Stress from forced stall rest
We aren’t vets, so we don’t diagnose medical matters, but Equine Massage is a proven methodology for helping most horses improve their bodies and minds.
I have always had an affinity and love for all animals, and I’ve had almost a sixth sense of where they are experiencing pain. I’ve been “in horses” for 50 years, and like all of you, I have been horse-crazy since I was a toddler. From learning to post on my Aunt’s show Arabian to leasing a feisty Appaloosa, to finally owning my dream unicorn in the form of my sweet, trusty American Quarter Horse, Rolo, I have always had horses in my life. And since they have given my life such richness, I wanted to do something to give back to them.
Horses can’t talk. But they let us know in many ways that they are sore or tense. Equine massage is a way to bridge the communication gap between them and us, and most importantly- make them feel better!
Some of my best friends never say a word to me.
