Technical School for Osteopathic Equine Therapy

image07Equine physiotherapists/osteopaths help when the body of a horse is out of balance by using various techniques on the bone structure and the muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Characteristic of the work done by Barbara Welter-Boeller at her facility is the appreciative, respectful treatment of animals. In the training she puts great emphasis on practical training. The facility has 50 – 60 horses for practical exercises, so that no one horse is over-exerted. The diversity in their breed, age and use, allows a demonstration of a wide range of practical problems which are treated as case studies.

Course modules are available for five days at a time of intensive work. All lecturers of the college are experienced riders, and thus can accurately explain the biomechanics of equine problems.
Elimination of causes and symptoms is discussed, as well as stabilization through targeted training to relieve the horse.

Veterinarians and Human physiotherapists can have this professional development and education recognized by the FN. Barbara Welter-Boeller began working with Saddlefit 4 Life in 2010 and has had Jochen Schleese appear several times annually at various venues throughout Germany to integrate his curriculum into the courses offered to the osteopaths. Several of the Saddle Ergonomists working in Europe have successfully completed their certification at the school and added the designation to their credentials.

I just wanted to touch base with you after Alexa and Julia’s lecture yesterday afternoon. We are so excited to have made this connection with Schleese saddles because we were so impressed with their presentation last night! It was such a great learning opportunity for the students. Alexa and Julia did an amazing job engaging the students and creating a really fun learning environment. It is obvious that they work really well as a team. They both suggested I contact you to see if we could have them out again next time they are in the area. They said they would probably be back in the spring. We would like to make it mandatory for all of our riding students to attend the next lecture because of the valuable information presented. Thank you again!! Taylor
