I am just about to finish my certification in massage therapy and my next step towards my career goals is to get my certification in equine massage therapy.

There are only a few well known schools that offer a certification in EMT. The one I plan to attend is in SC. I did a Google search for equine massage therapy training and read up on what each program had to offer. I then emailed the schools that I wanted to know more about and got further information on the curriculum and requirements.

Where to start is going to depend on a few things. How much horse experience do you have? How confident are you as a handler? How much knowledge of equine anatomy and physiology do you have? What are the requirements of the school you are looking at?

Most schools state that a background in human massage is not needed, but is beneficial so it would be a good idea to think about if you want to have both.

If you don't mind my asking, what part of the country are you in?
