sheli testimonialJust received this awesome testimonial from a friend, who watched my ONE VIDEO on how to release the crest for the Correspondence Course!
“Bev- I thought I’d share a massage story with you. Did you see the pic I just posted of Monty? I have had a terrible time getting him to stay up in the poll at the canter- he wanted to curl and hide. Yesterday, I found a knot in his poll- right side and it was too sore to massage-he was really unhappy about it. So I did the “kneading” crest and he blew out about 6 times and yawned 5. No trouble staying up in the poll today and also no knot.”

Time for a shout out Thursday instead of TBT. As many of you know, I recently undertook a course in horse massage with Equine Massage School-Located in SE Indiana/Rehab/Biomechanics. But massage isn’t all I’m learning. There’s so much to learn about saddle fit, saddle placement and biomechanics! The leader of this school Beverly Brady has dedicated herself to turning out top notch students both for live classes and distance learners. She is available any hour (almost) of the day by text, messaging, phone or email to share pictures of horses, injuries, opinions and methodologies. This woman and her Amassage Method has changed my life! In turn, I will change the lives of others, by helping horses (and owners) feel better and perform as they are destined to, pain free. Thank you Beverly and your school for making a difference. If you want to learn from her…check out her FB page!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am loving all of this! I can’t believe how much I felt like I have already learned in just these few hours this morning, I can’t wait for my books to get here. I also would like to say, that all of Paris’s back issues over the last 10 years are ALL making sense. I think we definitely have a lot of corrective work to do. Thank you. I cannot wait to start using these therapies on her. This is all so exciting to me!!
Leslie Pumford So exciting! Seriously worth every penny. Talking with Bev is like having an on call coach!!! She responds to my questions and emails so fast!!!!
I just want you to know how much I appreciate everything you are doing for me and all the help you are giving me. I truly believe in the work that you do and what I am learning. Thank you so much!!!
I am so thankful that I took this class:) I will soon be certified and I have learned more in these past few months than I have in all the time I have been riding. Bev is awesome!!!! She is so easy to talk to and has so much knowledge. I know her raining and knowledge will give me an edge that no one else has. If anyone is hesitant about taking a class please do! It is so worth it! Bev helped me take my 19 year old barrel horse, who I thought was retired, and ten him completely around!

“It has been fantastic. Great coaching!
I don’t know how she does everything in her life and still be there whenever there is a question from one of her students. My horses are being great subjects and are really seeing the benefits of the program.
Don’t be shy. With the excellent help through great videos and one on one direction it makes it easy to get through.”

Had a chance to apply what I’m learning in massage school on Bombay’s hindquarters a bit this evening and WOW! Reaching much further underneath… Another week and we may have the REAL Bombay in the barn.
This course is amazing and worth the investment of time, money and effort. There are so many horses out there needing relief from pain instead of new training gadgets and drills…

I HIGHLY recommend this course to all horse owners! You can study at your own pace and if you want to really buckle down and get it done, Beverly Brady, is right there to help in EVERY way she can!   Bev is great at answering questions and helping in any way she can!

    Do you ever travel to other barns? Out of state? If we got enough people together? We’re in pa and have an indoor arena. I was thinking maybe we could get people together for a weekend or so of you!

    • thebunch1 says:

      I dont’ think I could travel that far,at least not right now-I’m the only one at my farm and have to be here to take care of my animals. Last time I left, it didn’t go so well.
      But what we could do, is set up a time for you all to come here-as a group-perhaps a group rate? You could all stay at the B&B together? We could also do a split weekend class-come 2 different weekends, with 1-2 weeks in between!

  2. Jenny Zeller says:

    I am very interested in this correspondence class! I live in Colorado and have two small children so the correspondence class is best. The program listed above is the one to be cesmt? But does not include the certificate in saddle fitting correct?

    • thebunch1 says:

      Thank you Jenny for contacting me-This is a Certification in Massage and Level 1 Biomechanics. Just basic saddle fit info for you, this is not to be a professional saddle fitter. Just to see if that saddle fits the clients horse.

  3. Gracie says:

    Hi I am very interested in starting up the in a correspondence class. Do you have any openings in the next few months or is there a waiting list?

    • thebunch1 says:

      No waiting list, but I do limit them per month so I can be sure to give enough attention to everyone for that month. I do have openings still if you are interested

  4. Heather says:

    I’ve been wanting to take your correspondence course for a while, just not for another month or so. Is there a way i could buy the book now to study it? Or would I need to wait until I started the classes?

  5. Cherisa says:

    Any chance you would be traveling to New Mexico, perhaps Albuquerque, to do an event? I’m really interested and while 3 hours away from Albq, it’s usually the usually the city with the biggest draw for these type of events.

    • thebunch1 says:

      WE rarely travel, I have 2months online classes for you to study, and then a 4day Hands on Class (if you chose that one)in TN, SW MI and working on a place in Utah.

  6. Amy says:

    Can you become certified after completing the online class?

  7. Susan Phillips says:

    Looking into doing your online course. Its a 3 month course, what exactly type of certificate would one receive at completing this course?

    • thebunch1 says:

      You would be certified in my Amassage Method of Equine Massage as a CESMT. The Amassage Method is More than ‘just massage’, it’s a full training in Biomechanics, eyeballing, riding, saddle fit, groundwork, etc. to actually get the horse better and off the ‘massage triangle’ where the massage becomes a temporary fix. WE want a permanent fix for the horses-and I teach you how to do that.

  8. Abigail says:

    I’m looking into doing your online class then come down for a couple days of hands on training. I just don’t have all the money right now and I’m not sure when I would be able to travel to you. I was wondering if I did the $100 deposit if it would hold the price and a spot for me after I figure out when I could come down. I want to pay for it in full and not do payments. If you could send me more information that would be fantastic. Thank you

    • thebunch1 says:

      The $100 deposit will hold this years payment for you , but you will need to either start the payments by Feb or be paid in full if that is what you prefer to do. In order to be in a spring class, you will need to do the online portion prior to going to the class.
      I no longer do the hands on in SE Indiana, but I do have a great instructor in SW Michigan or Nashville TN

  9. Rener says:

    I live in canada and am not able to travel …can I still take the course or is there a Canadian site

  10. Amanda LaBarge says:

    Hello,
    I was looking into taking your courses. I have looked into equine massage and notice each state has different laws and regulations about equine massage. The state I live in and my surrounding states all say I would have to have a veterinarian with me to supervise if I were to work on other horses.

    So how do you make this certification pay off as a side business if I have to get a vet to go with me to see every client?

    Thank you for your time.

    • thebunch1 says:

      In some instances, you can work under a vets authority, basically having them call you for their clients if they are in need. That is the best way to do that. Or working under a few vets that you have gone on calls with-like I have and become good friends with them and basically co workers, even though you would be independent of them. And depends too on how strict the laws are and how strict they are on enforcing them. Many states have laws for chiro being vet a only practice…yet many do it anyway and nothing is said or done.

  11. Doreen Wallingford says:

    Hello:)
    I am interested in taking this course:)
    Im in canada, hope it doesnt cause a problem?
    I had a few questions before I start?
    So i just send you the payement and have books to order? Is there specific times i have to be infront of the computer? I work thats why my questionning.
    Once payement is sent where do i go about? I guess an email is sent with directives?
