Services and prices
Bodywork and Massage
(Qualified and insured. All certificates are available to be seen. Use of fascia edge tool and photizo tool included.)
Initial equine bodywork session
Initial equine bodywork sessions usually take around 1.5 to 2 hours depending on how the horse reacts or session findings. A full static and dynamic assessment is done, prior to treatment. After treatment you receive a full write up with a brief history, session findings and what your horse received during the session, as well as a follow up, owner moves and stretches as well as any other information or guidance needed.
Single (follow up) equine bodywork session
This is the price for routine sessions after the initial equine bodywork session has been done, If sessions are regularly booked in throughout the year.
If you require a bodywork session as a returning client but I haven't seen your horse(s) within the year then you will be charged at £40 per horse, and I will have to do another initial assessment.
Within the session you receive a detailed write up. this includes session findings, owner moves and stretches and any other information or guidance needed.
As with the initial session I require a walk and trot up (in some cases lunged) prior to any treatment (unless previously agreed that a in hand assessment is not suitable)
Follow up equine bodywork session
If your equine requires another session within 10-14 days of initial session. This is a more focused and targeted session. The same applies that a walk, trot up or potentially a lunge will be needed. You will receive a full write up sheet outlining any changes and/or new stretches and information.

With yard sessions ideally I'd like to stay the entire day, ensuring each horse or pony gets the appropriate time and treatment they deserve.
Before booking please ensure that:
Your hors(s) is clean, I am unable to treat wet or muddy horses.
That for the treatment I have a suitable area to work, ideally somewhere that is flat and dry. If a stable or wash bay is available that is the preferred area for treatment.
That your horse may need a minimum of 24 hours off following treatment.
Ideally post treatment your horses(s) have somewhere to move afterwards, or some form of stretch out; turnout would be suitable, or in hand walking.

Vet Approval is recommended for bodywork or any type of therapy. Here at GD Equine vet approval is either sought by Georgia herself, or via the owner or carer of the horse(s) in question. It is always beneficial to keep the vets in the know when treating, and even more so for insurance quotes. When booking a horse in Georgia will ask for veterinary details prior to the initial first session, and then on following sessions Georgia discusses any changes or vet call outs before the session. All changes are noted for both the owner/ carer and Georgia herself.
Please note that if you're stabled outside of a 10 mile radius of Crawley (RH10), a small travel expense will be added. The fuel charge per mile is 0.50p.
