“Megan really listened to my concerns and goals for Cappy. He has shown less stiffness in his movements since getting massaged. Megan has given us suggestions for gentle stretches and exercises. She has a positive attitude and a love for animals which shows in her gentle, caring interactions with Cappy. She’s always on time no matter how bad the weather may be.”
-Marlene and Cappy
"Before she developed and incorporated Flights of Angels Equine Therapy LLC, I had Megan work with my Mustang, Sydney. Sydney is a Right-Brain Introvert horse who is cow-hocked. As a consequence, she tends to be tense both in her body and her mind. I thought massage and stretching might be helpful for both. I asked my farrier for a recommendation and he immediately mentioned Megan.
At the time Megan was entering school to obtain her certification in Equine massage therapy. After working with Sydney the first time she asked if Sydney could be a case study for her certification and I agreed.
Sydney loves having Megan give her a massage. Megan is very gentle and slow, but also very confident in her treatment of Sydney. Being a right-brained introvert, Sydney requires confident, slow, gentle handling. Megan allows Sydney to graze during much of her treatment, which, in turn, makes her more cooperative when Megan needs that!
Being cow-hocked, Sydney has tight semitendinosus muscles which are similar to the human hamstring, connecting her sacral vertebrae and pelvis to her hock on both legs. This tension combines with her cow-hocked conformation often making it difficult for the farrier to work on her back hooves. After working with Megan, it is now much easier for her to pick up her back feet for longer periods of time. It is surprising that she has not developed more hind leg problems since before I got her she was used in gymkhanas and breakaway, all of which require speed and use of the hindquarters. This has kept her from being on her forehand which is a good thing, but she has had to use those back leg muscles a lot."
