About the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®
The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989, of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.

About the Masterson Method®
Masterson Method Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork is an interactive method of equine bodywork in which you learn to recognize and use the response of the horse to your touch. The bodywork will help find and release accumulated tension in key junctions in the horse’s body.

The horse actively participates in the process of releasing tension. Masterson Method is something you do with the horse rather than to the horse. The participation and interaction is what makes the method fascinating. The interactive and intuitive nature of Masterson Method can help improve performance and also help access a new level of communication with the horse.

The bodywork can result in:
1. Visual and palpable responses in the horse
2. Improvement in suppleness, mobility, performance and comfort for the horse
3. A bond of trust that develops as a result of the cooperation between horse and body worker/owner
