Here is what horse owners have to say about HealthEquine Therapies!
JUSTINE & COWBOY
"I can't say enough good about Lauren and her services! Not only is she informative and willing to take the time to educate her clientele, she is thorough and takes the time to get a sense of how our rides have been going and any sort of out of the normal behaviors or habits that have developed. Each session is different and tailored to what Cowboy's needs are at that moment. Lauren has worked wonders bringing Cowboy back into his A game after undergoing saddle fit issues, and he overall responds so well to her! (I'm sure the cookies also help ). I'm definitely thankful to have Lauren on Cowboy's health and wellness team! "
NIcole & Bright
"As someone who spends time building confidence and positive reinforcement in an anxious horse, I needed someone who understood the disposition and trigger points in a very giving but sometimes quick to stress horse. Lauren was knowledgeable and helped relieve muscle pain in areas that Bright attempts to hold tension in. After a minor back strain, Lauren has helped us to release tension in sore muscles and slowly work to eliminate problem areas. With her guidance I have noticed a significant improvement in Bright's top line and movement. Not only was Lauren supportive and answered any and all questions that have come up, she suggested two Equithalasso products that have become routine treatment in Bright's routine. I use both the competition wrap and marine mud depending on the issue at hand. Both have shown results after just one treatment. With Lauren’s guidance and skill, we have adapted stretching techniques and parts of our riding schedule to best suit Bright to keep him at his best. I highly recommend both Lauren and the Equithalasso products to keep your horse at their best. Upcoming competitions or not, Lauren can help keep your horse at theirhealthiest."
Katie, Donovan & Hennessy
"I have been using Lauren's services for several years. She began working on my first horse as we were starting to seriously compete on the Ontario A circuit. Lauren immediately understood the needs of my horse and was quick to develop a program for him. I noticed an immediate difference in how he felt, and the long term results are better than I could have imagined. Once my young horse entered a consistent work program, I quickly started her on a HealthEquine Therapies program, and Lauren knew exactly how to handle her and her "baby moments". The supplement recommendations Lauren is able to provide through Omega Alpha has also made a huge difference in my horses. Whether it's daily maintenance, or succeeding at multi-day events, HealthEquine Therapies always has the perfect supplement for the job. Lauren's professionalism and understanding of all things equine makes her my go-to for my horses well-being!"
Tammy & Foxy
"My daughter and I, along with our horse Foxy, have been using Lauren for a couple years now. We love the amazing bond she has with our mare and how the massage therapy has really help our girl. Lauren has shows us some maintenance exercises to work between appointments, which have really worked and Foxy enjoys! We have noticed the difference in Foxy's movements. We have also used Lauren Equi-Taping on different stress areas and they really have improved her over all movement. We have been using the Omega Alpha GLS Powder and Biotic 8 Plus which Lauren suggested and they have really helped with her joints and stomach digestion."
Terra & Karizmuh
"Lauren has been great with my mare, Karizmuh ! Her first session was a last minute one. Lauren was out to work on another horse in the barn and Karizmuh was having some stiffness issues. It was a damp cold evening but Lauren eagerly did a full assessment and session with her, took all of the information that I relayed and was able to pin point all of her problem areas and work on them. Karizmuh really seems to like Lauren and her approach! There was a noticeable difference in Karizmuh the next ride and she felt great! Lauren is really able to explain the anatomy of the horse and how all the muscles and ligaments work and why the horse may be sore in certain areas. She gives stretches and exercises that will help to strengthen the horse, and keep their muscles loose. Lauren has always gotten back to me right away and made appointments to come out within a week. I recommend Lauren to anyone who is looking for a great massage therapist for their horse(s)!! "
Liz of Hollybrook fARMS
"I would highly recommend Lauren's services. She recently worked on my horse Sion, who had come in from the paddock with very swollen pecs and was visible sore in his entire front end. After a few days of rest, the swelling was not coming down and he was not sound. Lauren worked on him and within a day he was back to normal, and after 2 days was completely sound. She did a great job of pinpointing all his sore spots -not just the visible ones -and results could be seen not only in reduced swelling, but in Sion's expressions and behavior. Lauren could explain everything she was doing to me and gave me some great stretches to help his sore spots out on a daily basis. Sion will most definitely have more treatments by Lauren as the results were fabulous. Now if she could just work on me!"
Claire of willoway farm
"Lauren’s knowledge and patience is unmatched, she’s won over many of our horses. She works well with a variety of horses from the nervous, don’t touch me horse, to the baby, to the one that knows exactly what feels good. She continually educates herself within the industry to ensure the best care for your horse. Over the years Lauren has fielded many of our questions regarding products to be using, exercises to do after a massage and will do follow ups to check in with how things are going. She is a wonderful, knowledgeable horse person, attentive to horses needs and overall a wonderful practitioner who we’re grateful to have on our team!"
Danielle & Willow
"After two sessions, Willow's trot has been more fluid and she isn't shortening her stride on her left hind at the trot anymore. We still do the hip stretches and it has helped her as well. She is now able to walk-trot-canter (lightly) since her second session which was just over a week ago. Willow absolutely loves the sessions and Lauren does and amazing job working on the baby 17'3hh Clydesdale.
SARA & VOODOO
"Absolutely recommend Lauren! She is incredibly knowledgeable genuinely love the animals she get to work with. She's patient and is always willing to help owners with any questions they have. Definitely my go to person when I need my horse pampered!"
Lindsay & chase
"When I chose to purchase my first (and second) horse, I also knew that I would need to put together a team that would help my horses feel good, be happy and healthy. It's important to me that I have the best support for my horses. Lauren will always be my #1 go to person for Equine Health Services. I have called on numerous times to massage my boys, seek advice on supplements and inquire about Equi-Tape (and I am sure more of her services in the future). She is always just a message away. She answers my questions promptly and even does her research if she isn't quite sure of the answer. I cannot say enough great things about Lauren. I am not sure who is happier after our appointments; me or the horses. Thank you Lauren for all you do! I am so blessed to have someone like you in my corner to bring out the best in my horses."
Jordan & Rex
"I contacted Lauren back in January, 2021, when my 21 year old thoroughbred, Rex, was experiencing tightness and sensitivity in his back and hindend in the cold winter months (and seemed to be struggling a little more than usual). Lauren was extremely helpful and enthusiastic when it came to working with Rex and I noticed a much happier and relaxed horse after his first session. Rex enjoyed Lauren so much over the winter that we continued on with her into our show season. Lauren has also been great to work with on selecting and bringing in Back on Track products for me as well as providing recommendations supplement wise from Omega Alpha to support Rex. Lauren has an excellent attention to detail and ensures that no concern of mine is too small. I feel every communication with her is of value and that my horse is always a priority. She is a joy to communicate with and I always look forward to sending her messages as well as receiving her thoughtful responses back."
Jess & Connor
“Lauren has been massaging my horse, Connor, for several years now. Managing an 18.1hh hunter/jumper takes a lot of work, and Lauren has been an integral part of that for us. She not only keeps his muscles supple and comfortable, but her feedback lets me know what muscles may be tight and if there are any sore spots on his body during his training. She’s also introduced me to many products from companies like Incrediwear that help with his daily and show season health management. Connor looks forward to seeing Lauren every time she is in the barn!”
Marissa & Emmy
"Lauren has been amazing for my girl Emmy. She spends the time to find her tightest muscles and provides recommendations on exercises to support the development and strengthening of those areas. I wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape on Emmy and Lauren was able to teach me the basics to help further support between massage appointments. She even has products that she has tried on herself that she can sell to us horse parents for our pain relief, healing and circulation improvement. We love Lauren!"
" With Ben being a competitive head horse, we need him feeling his best not only in the competition pen, but also during practice and every day in between. HealthEquine Therapies plays a big part in helping keep him feeling his best with the use of massage and Graston Technique. Lauren helps us to work through any muscle issues that our boy may have. With her help Ben works and feels in top form. In our family, our horse is not just a horse, he's a member of the family and he's treated as such."
Nicole of Touch of class
"I should start by saying this review is 7 years overdue! I have been a client of Health Equine Therapies for that long and have used several of Lauren's services. My business brings in many types of horses with varying needs and Lauren never disappoints when helping provide care. Whether it be a young horse just starting into a program or a semi- retired horse we are trying to keep happy for as long as possible, Lauren is an integral part of our Touch Of Class team. Lauren's wealth of knowledge and variety of services helps us make the right choices for each individual horse. I truly believe if you want them to perform their best in the ring, you need to provide them the best care out of the ring and Lauren helps create that! Looking forward to our continued partnership in 2021!"
SHaniah & Beau
"Lauren has been with us since the start. About 2.5 years ago, I purchase my first horse - Beau. As exciting as this was and continues to be, it hasn't gone without hiccups along the way. And Lauren has been with us through it all - poor saddle fit, change of barns, COVID 19 pandemic... She goes above and beyond to support and educate me so that together we can help Beau feel his best. I feel she has equipped me with simple yet super effective tools. Between massage sessions, I am able to apply basic Equi-Tape tapings and fun stretches taught by Lauren to help maintain relaxed muscles. Beau and I surely appreciated Lauren's eagerness, dedication and patience. Lots and lots of patience! It has been a team effort to get Beau where he is today and we are proud to have Lauren on our team!"
KRISTI Of Ryverside Farms
"Lauren has been working wiht my horses for the past six months. In that time, I have seen great positive change in their demeanor and their abilities as performance horses. She is kind, patients and has a genuine love for horses. Her variety of therapies ensures horses are comfortable in their daily lives."
jenn, jordy & Addi
"This is Addi, my daughter Jordy's barrel horse. We bought Addi in December 2016. When we purchased her I was so up on the air, as she had so many problems, she was antsy, wouldn't stop, shook her head, couldn't tack her without someone else holding her as she would take a chunk out of you, even putting a saddle on her she would try so hard to bite! So, like always, shortly after I got her home I had Lauren out to look over Addi. When she looked at her she could barely touch her let alone massage her, but Lauren being Lauren, she didn't give up and worked with her even harder and patiently. We noticed she had some ribs popped out on her back, which was so new to me, never seen ribs out on a horse. Lauren gave us lots of exercises to do and told Jordy to stay off of her for while. So we did as we were told and Jordy worked really hard along side Lauren, she was like Lauren's side kick! Lauren was great and called or messaged me weekly to see how Addi was doing, we had Lauren out every 4- 6 weeks to make sure she was feeling good all the time. Lauren hasn't come out for over 2 months now and Addi's feeling amazing!!! Addi and Jordy are now back running barrels better then ever and Addi is a completely new horse. She does slow work all the time, stands for hours to be groomed, tacks with no problems. Addi wouldn't be the horse she is now for my daughter if it wasn't for Lauren. She is amazing and I trust her 110% with all my horses!!"
Chelsey of abbey road stables
"I have owned my pony, Abbey, for 4 years now. Until a couple months ago Abbey had automatic lead changes, but I noticed she was having a hard time switching her back end in one direction. As soon as Lauren watched Abbey’s movement she could pinpoint what was wrong with her. She did a very thorough job starting from the head and slowly worked her way down Abbey's body. Lauren was not only able to explain everything she was doing, but she was also very good at explaining WHY she was doing it. In the days to follow, Abbey was much happier while being ridden, was able to work in straighter lines and feel more balanced. With the stretches Lauren gave me and a couple more treatments, hopefully Abbey should be back to 100 percent in no time. Thanks Lauren ."
GAby & sadie
"Lauren has been nothing but helpful when it comes to my three year old Sadie. In the summer/fall of 2014 Sadie came in from the field with a large hematoma between her front legs and after two months of veterinary treatment (drainage, vitamin K shots, and blood work) we decided to turn to Lauren. After the first session there was about 90% decrease in the size of the hematoma, the rest went away in about a week and a half. Lauren has been nothing but kind and helpful to us. Today Sadie receives massages just to make sure her muscles are growing and stretching properly. With the help of Lauren I now have a happy hematoma-free three year old that is growing like a weed! Thank you so much Lauren for all that you do for Sadie."
ASHLEY OF PONIES R US
"Lauren was super accommodating and made our beautiful man, Lightening, very happy and comfortable. Would highly recommend!"
