Hello and welcome!

My name is Stefanie Reinhold and I am a certified equine massage and Masterson Method(TM) bodywork practitioner, living, working and blogging in Madison, WI. My motto is ‘Well horses perform well!’ and I am passionate about what I call ‘Horse Wellness‘, meaning giving the horse enough respect to show him compassion and give him what he needs to do the job we assigned him to do.

Please visit my website to find out more about my work and philosophy and read Horse Wellness related articles.

  1. Have you heard of the “Suber Pad”? I’ve read that the British Army uses them on their cavalry horses in Bosnia….and yes, they do have cavalry horses there right now. I think I would always want to use at least a wool cover on a pad. The Suber Pad seems to work well. The old wool cavalry blanket served the army well.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I have not heard of this particular pad, but seen the website. Do you have any experience with it? The advantage of the cavalry saddle blanket is that it’s easy to wash, sustainable and has a very long life span.

  2. I have no experience with the pad. I’ve read a few reviews on Google. All reviews expressed positive comments. I am trying to get a synopsis of the British Army field test. I’ve read that the British Army performed tests with electronic equipment to measure pressure points on the horse’s back when using the Suber Pad. I read that the tests showed a remarkable positive improvement…. If I secure a copy of the report, then I will be happy to post comments regarding its findings and methodology.

  3. Just found your blog from Amanda’s A Fat Girl & A Fat Horse blog. Jim Masterson’s work intrigues me… I suspect it’s closer to what I do now than what I was trained to do as an Equine Body Worker.
    You do an excellent job explaining stretches and such here.
