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.

Testimonials

Dear Sabine, Angelika, Jochen and Katja, I really enjoyed our time together with a wonderful bunch of Ladies. We worked and learned so much from Katja and also each other by bouncing questions or problems of each other. It helped a lot if things where perhaps not clear at the beginning. Each contributed with their strengths and supported the other with made it an amazing learning experience. It was very intense learning and long nights but I enjoyed every minute. Katja has an amazing way to teach us, she really makes us think and brings out the best in us. Not sure how to better describe it … Thanks so much Katja for putting so much time and effort into your teaching. It is very much appreciated and I know that the others feels the same. I am very grateful that we got the opportunity to become a part of Saddlefit4life at “the end of the world” here in South Africa. I am very excited about this journey I am on and I am looking forward helping many more Horses and Riders. It is so very needed here.
