Amy was born and raised in Central Florida. She began her journey with horses as a young girl at Lawton Stables, Hilton Head Island, SC, during annual family summer vacations. This quickly became an obsession for her, and resulted in a successful showing career as a junior and Amateur Hunter Jumper rider while under the exceptional tutelage of Wendy & Ezequiel Peralta of Seabreeze Farm in Geneva, FL. She competed at some of the country’s most prestigious shows, her favorites being Lake Placid and Saratoga NY, and the Winter Equestrian Festival.
Amy loves the sunshine state and all the beauty it possesses. She is always on the move as her services are requested all over Florida. She balances her time with local clients throughout Central Florida, Wellington International in Wellington, FL, and the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, FL, ranging from ponies to FEI Professionals.

ALL INCLUSIVE SESSION
As a certified Myo-Manipulative Functional Therapist, I utilize my hands and tools to help manipulate the horses muscles to restore proper function to the body. There are many benefits to equine massage including improved circulation, improved movement and reduction of pain and stress responses, draining of lymph fluids, stretching connective tissues and reduced stiffness, and last but not least improves the attitude and mood of the horse. These benefits allow for faster healing, promotes optimal athleticism, and can decrease the chance of some injuries.
The BEMER Horse-Set improves suppleness during training or when preparing for competitions. It can also provide valuable support during the healing process, including recovery from muscle tension or tendon/ligament/muscle injury. Remember, the BEMER Horse-Set does not replace treatment and care of an injury or disease by a veterinarian. A veterinarian should be consulted prior to use of the BEMER Horse-Set for any medical condition.
COLD LASER THERAPY
Laser therapy can effectively reduce pain and inflammation associated with a variety of acute and chronic conditions including: arthritis, infections, wounds, post surgical, sprains, tendon injuries, fractures and also acupressure therapy with a multitude of benefits. Contact me for more details specific to your needs! I utilize Class 3 and Class IV lasers.
