Welcome and thanks for stopping by!
Even though the blog is still young and growing, it is simply my hope to share it with people who love their horses as much as I do. After all, Equicessities is for equestrians and will provide posts and articles about riding, training, health & anatomy, as well as product reviews and further recommended reading.
Sheri is a certified equine massage therapist, a personal training specialist, as well as a graduate of University of Guelph’s Agriculture & Equine Studies Diploma program, which followed her Equine Science Certificate with Distinction.
Utilizing various massage techniques as well as TTouch and Masterson Method bodywork, her massage therapy is tailored specifically for each individual, taking the time it takes.
Through her work in the industry and the experiences of working with various trainers and clinicians over the years, Sheri is well-informed of the specific demands of various equestrian sports and the effects on the horse’s musculoskeletal system.
In her free time, she often has her nose in books, pouring over literature on biomechanics and the correlations of psychology and physiology. Patient and good-humoured, she also often finds herself playing with the misfits and mischievous, and currently owns and trains the silly and delightful Mr. P.
Sheri has been a rider since before she could walk, participating in Pony Club as a kid, then hunter extensively before falling in love with dressage. Over the decades, she’s dabbled in everything from mounted games to western pleasure, open-minded to explore and experience as much as she can.
