Is Undesired Tension Holding

Your Horse Back?

Muscles never lie.

When your horse becomes restricted in their movement due to physical and mental tension, their ability to perform at their highest level, recover from fatigue or soreness, and sustain a supple, soft, and working body becomes compromised.

Unbridled Equine is an FEI Top-Tier Permitted Equine Massage Therapist

As an experienced competitive equestrian myself, I am dedicated to providing certified, professional treatment options for all horses. Keeping your horse at the top of their game requires a team of experienced professionals. As a certified massage therapist, I work closely with your team to provide services that are focused on the long-term success of your horse. I regularly travel all over the United States and am available at FEI level shows and A-rated Hunter/Jumper shows to help horse owners, riders, and caretakers learn how to keep their horses feeling their best.

I'm Katie Hawkins.

With 25+ years horse experience, I am a certified Animal Acupressure and Massage Therapist with accreditation from Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage—earning the title of certified Equine Therapeutic Massage Therapist (ETMT). I am also certified as a Permitted Equine Therapists for FEI level competitions.

Unbridled Equine was birthed from my own health issues, which gave insight into the need for integrative health solutions for horses. Each massage I perform utilizes researched-based, holistic modalities to tailor the session to the evolving performance horse. Muscles never lie and that's the reason equine massage gives owners, trainers and riders a deep understanding of the horse's physical health. One massage session shows areas of tension or weakness that might be causing training issues.

As a competitive show jumper myself, I have dedicated my work through Unbridled Equine to educating owners, riders, and other horse care professionals through hands-on and virtual platforms, and showing other equestrians the correlation between rider’s muscle limitations and their horse’s performance.

Muscles Never Lie,

But Don't Just Take Our Word For It

“Katie is an incredible asset to any team. She is a horsewoman, she understands the sport, and she has vast knowledge about getting the best out of the horse’s entire musculoskeletal system. She is immensely talented at using her sports massage techniques, combined with additional therapies to target and release any discomforts, and allow the horses to perform at their best. We value her opinion and trust her instincts – she has great insight into each individual horse.”

“Katie is devoted to her clients and their horses. She always puts her best foot forward and is constantly looking to add to her repertoire of skills.  Keeping horses looking, feeling, and performing their best takes a village, and we are incredibly lucky to have Katie apart of ours!!”

“As a doctor, I understand the necessity for connective tissue work in maintaining athletes’ peak performance during training…why would that need change for my horses that are top performers? It doesn’t. Unbridled Equine is the quintessential application in prepping Carollo during his endurance training and at top level FEI shows. Thank you U.E. for achieving FEI status and massaging Carollo to his victories!”
