I began a long journey of becoming a better horse person in the late 90's at my training facility in Northern CA. Developing a firm grasp of anatomy, behavior, biomechanics, and biology to better understand horses and more adequately provide for their well-being and happiness.
As a whole horse bodyworker and trainer, I gained intimate knowledge of how the horse's body and mind function together in a normal state. Years of attending formal courses pertaining to functional anatomy, or specific techniques in bodywork, combined with exploring and observing behavior during training, has lead me to this current path. My knowledge continues to grow through self-study, through honoring the spirit of the horse, and through listening to the many horse owners that I have the privilege to work with.
I am a freelance saddle fitter and advisor, offering advanced saddle fitting. I offer the full range of Custom Saddlery, Prestige Italia, and Bliss of London and carry a fully stocked saddle trailer with plenty of customizable options. My priority is to help you and your horse find comfort, and will work on any saddle offering an unbiased opinion. I implement years of experience into each fitting. And offer a thoughtful and unique approach with the intimate understanding of spinal relationship to mind body wholeness.

CranioSacral is an advanced form of bodywork that works deeply in the body with minimal pressure. The practitioner uses gentle sustained contact applied in a precise manner to resolve imbalances in the physical structure and imbalances in the function of the nervous system. Cranial work is one of the most highly refined approaches that may be effective in not only severe situations such as Head Shaking Syndrome, TMJ dysfunction, and skull fractures, but is also beneficial as an overall wellness program due to the cranium and spine pressures that most horses endure. Shea is one of the few practitioners in the U.S. who has years of clinical practice applying advanced craniosacral studies and biodynamic work offering consultations and ECS classes. ....read more
Thank you for YOU!! I am so blown away - - - I am basically "stunned" - - in my 50 + years dealing with horses, I have NEVER, EVER, seen anything work so well and make changes so fast. I just kept staring at Kenny's face - I could not believe what I was witnessing. He was so calm on Sunday (like he was Saturday), no twitching, no hypersensitivity, no head bobbing. He even let me clip his bridle path with his head still - - -that has never happened.
This is the first time he has been physically relieved since he developed Trigeminal Neuralgia, after his sinus surgery over one year ago!."......read more
