Welcome to the "horsesanddogs" website, dedicated to providing information and education on animal massage to all horse and dog enthusiasts. The animal massage courses are offered by Qualified McTimoney Animal Practitioner Nikki Routledge who holds a Masters degree and Post Graduate Diploma in McTimoney Animal Manipulation and an Honours degree in Equine Science. Nikki combines her teaching commitments with a busy animal therapy business in the South West of England, and competes her own horses in Endurance Riding.
Our courses in Equine and Canine Massage are extremely popular, highly educational and easy to study, not to mention very beneficial for the horses and dogs involved. The Merishia Animal Massage Course has helped over 500 students learn sports massage skills over the last 10 years. To read about the benefits of learning to massage and see comments made by our students, go to our Animal Massage Page.
Our Horseowners Massage Booklet is also now available, an easy to use booklet designed for horseowners to perform basic massage and stretching exercises on their own horse. For more information and to order your booklet, go to our Animal Massage Page.
