About Trudi

My equine massage instructors-Michael and Sara Stenson

I am Certified Equine Massage Therapist with over 350 hours of course study that included hands on massage therapy experience, anatomy and movement, hoof care, saddle fitting with a Western saddle maker and English saddle fitter, as well as handling and safety of horses. I received my certification from Prairie Winds Equine Massage Therapy College in August 2006 in Colorado, graduating in the top ten of my class.


I have always had a passion for animals, whether they are hamsters or beef cattle. Having worked for veterinary hospitals over the years, it has taught me to look for the subtleties in the wellbeing of animals in addition to the importance that western medicine holds. After completing my equine massage schooling, I started looking at the health and interests of animals in a different light, especially horses.


Many alternative therapies are over looked for various reasons. Equine massage has been shown to improve the attitude of the horse, relieve tension and stress and help to heal wounds faster. Any and all breeds of horses, as well as disciplines will gain from the good of massage. I feel equine massage has helped me to aid my own horses as well as my clients (horse and human)!



On the more personal side of me, I am an avid animal lover. I own two horses that I use for trail riding and competitive, amateur team penning. We won first place in 2008, thanks to a wonderful team penning partner, and a fantastic horse! I raise a small flock of Suffolk sheep which I sell to 4-H and FFA kids. I also have raised a bottle calf, now 3 years old, who is recently a mother herself. So no matter what I'm doing, I'm surrounded by animals and couldn't ask for anything more!
