Prizes from Cathy Koetsier MMCP (Masterson Method Certified Practitioner and MM Student Mentor)

Prize No 30) A demonstration of MM techniques for a group of interested horse lovers at a venue of their choice in Norfolk.

Prize No 31) A full 2 hour MM bodywork session for one fortunate equine - horse/pony/donkey based within a 40 minute drive of Diss, Norfolk.

The Masterson Method (MM) is a type of bodywork that works with the natural instincts of the horse to release accumulated tension in three key junctions of the body that most affect relaxation, function and performance. As such, this form of bodywork is suitable - and highly recommended -  for almost any horse, ridden or non-ridden, of any age and stage of development, and of any breed or discipline. 

MM it is a form of bodywork done 'with' the horse rather than 'to' the horse. The horse plays a key role in his own treatment, making him an active participant in the process of releasing tension. Through his responses, he guides the process of non-invasive touch and gentle movements-- safe in knowing that he gets to dictate how much is enough. 

One of the wonderful things about the Masterson Method is that a lot of the techniques can be done by any caring horse owner, and Jim Masterson who developed MM, actively encourages horse owners to learn to do so from his book, DVD's, YouTube video clips and through weekend training courses.

Prize from Rachael Beesley, Equisentient Coaching.

Prize no 32 a set of Equisentient Coaching Cards.

For the first time, Equine Intuitive & Coach Rachael Beesley has harnessed the healing nature and spirituality of wild American horses in the form of an exclusive 44-card deck and accompanying guidebook.

“These cards hold a special energy and offer incredibly insightful guidance. They are beautifully made too. I gave a set to a friend and to use her words, she said “What absolutely beautiful cards. The words are so beautiful I felt tearful. These cards are priceless, utterly brilliant”. If you haven’t already bought a set, you won’t be disappointed. The guidance is spot on every time.” Midi 

“I have a pack of Rachael’s cards which I use for myself and with my clients as part of my Equine Assisted Coaching work. They are beautiful and really thought provoking. It’s a lovely way to help people tune into their inner world and what’s important to them. I would highly recommend them.” 

Each card depicts a photo of a wild horse or horses who roam free at the Return to Freedom sanctuary in California, and Rachael has recounted a reading from each horse to provide an accompanying message.

The cards can be used on a daily basis, or just when the need arises. Each message provides multi-layered answers which can be used time and again to help you move forward in your life.

The coaching cards are available to order as a first edition for just £19.99.

Have fun, explore the comfort these wonderful horses bring, invite the power and insight of the wild horse into your life and marvel at the results.

And as a thank you to the horses who participated in the creation of these cards, we’re donating 40% of the net profits of any card deck sold to the Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary. Click here to visit Rachael Beesley's Equisentient Coaching website.
