About Balanced Stride

I'm Catelyn

Growing up in the western riding industry attending rodeos and horse shows, I know firsthand how important it is for equine athletes to feel and perform at their best. Just like us riders, horses who consistently train and compete often come up with sore muscles, joint issues, and increased stress. The painful symptoms horses feel as a result are often mistaken for behavioral issues.

I want to be the voice and a helping hand to the owners who are struggling and unsure what to do. 

Let’s work together to find and evaluate the root cause of your horse’s discomfort and help them make strides towards pain-free performance through massage and bodywork. 

Benefits of

Equine Rehab & Bodywork

Equine massage alleviates muscle tension, spasms, and stiffness.

Increased Mobility

It helps improve the horse's range of motion by relieving tension in the muscles and fascia.

Pain Reduction

Massage can alleviate discomfort resulting from daily activities, workouts, or injuries.

Improved Circulation

Massage stimulates blood flow, bringing nutrients to muscles and helping remove toxins.

Enhanced Performance

Regular massages can help a horse perform at its best by preventing muscle tightness and promoting flexibility.

Injury Prevention

By identifying and addressing potential problem areas, massage can help prevent future injuries.

Stress Reduction

Craniosacral Therapy works to relieve emotional stress, and release compression in the head, back, and neck.
