The Masterson Method™ is a unique, interactive form of equine bodywork that draws on the horse’s responses to find and release accumulated tension in the key junctions that most affect the horse’s performance.

With this Method of bodywork, we observe and use the responses of the horse to our touch, enabling the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension. This method of equine bodywork is done with the horse, not to the horse and this style permeates everything Niamh does with horses.
This is a really practical, results driven form of equine physical therapy. Results can be witnessed immediately both through visual tension releases and through increased range of movement. Results can then be felt under saddle the very next day in improved suppleness, mobility and comfort, resulting in improved performance. This form of equine therapy has achieved significant results on the world stage with the creator, Jim Masterson, being asked to act as Equine Therapist for the 2006-2014 USEF Endurance Teams among many other top level global equine events.
