Susan is a Registered Ortho-Bionomy® and Equine Ortho-Bionomy® instructor, Equine Positional Release™ Practitioner and Founder of Equine Body Balance™ and Horses at Liberty Foundation Training™. She has had a lifelong love of horses and began her interest in bodywork while an endurance rider.
For over a decade, Susan has been a practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy, of which she is currently an instructor.Ortho-Bionomy is itself deeply effective in engaging the body’s innate self-corrective response, leading to sustainable healing. In 2017 she started her studies with Tallgrass Equine Acupressure.
Susan says: “I am so excited to become a Tallgrass Equine Acupressure practitioner; and to be able to bring this work to the horses in my care. The ability to get such an accurate sense of organic conditions will prove invaluable to my practice.”
