Our training efforts focus on the language that exists between horses, we work with our horses in teaching them, not forcing.

Savana Huculak

Certified Equine Sports Massage and Vertebral Realignment Therapist & Assistant Trainer

Savana grew up around horses and rode every chance she got! She volunteered at a horse ranch for years, working with a variety of horses at all levels. Attending horse numerous horse training camps and training her own horse from start to finish. After practicing as a Physio & Occupational Therapy Assistant for 4 years, she realized she needed to pursue her true passion of horses. Combining all of her experience in both fields to become a certified equine therapist. Her philosophy: I work WITH the horse to yield the best results for them. A horse’s body language is their only way of communicating with us, so I get to know each horse well before I start massage. That strong sense of connection, gives me insight into best course of treatment.
