Southern States Regional Fair Horse Show & Virginia Presidential Paso Fino Association Horse Show

Hello,’swelter weather’!  Little tip to keep your animals cool, especially dogs: pick up a little wading  pool  for under ten dollars at your local dollar store, fill it with water, let your pups stay cool!  The small pool even fits in the trunk of my compact car, so I can take it with me on the road. Remy, my Australian cattle dog, loves soaking and blowing bubbles and submerging his whole body on really hot days.

We are at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington again this weekend, I have a beautiful banner up at the farrier station between the first two barns beside the colosseum, so come out and say hello! If you mention this post or the post on Instagram, you’ll get 25% off your first massage! I also give discounts for referrals, so bring your friends!



House Mountain Horse Show @ the Virginia Horse Center

We are at the House Mountain Horse Show in Lexington, Virginia today and tomorrow (July 12th & 13th), so if your horse or dog is feeling sore or suffering colic or tying up or just needs a little tender loving care, get them a massage! They will thank you for it.

And if you mention this post or link on Instagram, you will get 25% off your first massage!







Going all out, nose deep, and tree high into spring!

Dinero & Kelly


“Carmen has a wondrous way with horses. She’s gentle and proficient and even my standoffish gelding will lean in welcoming her touch.” – Kelly Lane


Dinero and Kelly are experienced endurance athletes who will be taking on the 75 mile ride at the Biltmore estate endurance ride in North Carolina this May.  I have had the pleasure of working on this sweet, shy gelding a time or two and he is truly a one of a kind athlete, thanks to the hard work, time, and love Kelly has put into him.

Be on the lookout for these two, a real dream team!

Winter doldrums

It has been a busy winter for us this year, and it is surprising that we are already making moves towards spring. I hope you all are keeping warm and getting ready for the beautiful spring weather that allows for more riding and hiking and playing and living outdoors.

Let’s show off our animal buddies! Post a photo or photo collage of you and your loved ones living life. Tell a story! Let’s get out of these winter doldrums and share the light and love.

Rosie & Kirstyn

Kirsten and Rosie 2

Rosie and Kirstyn compete in local, regional, state and national shows in Eventing. Rosie, as a hardworking girl, is in excellent shape in order to perform at the top of her game. Along with conditioning and veterinary care, Rosie has regular massages that help prepare her for the rigorous demands of dressage, cross country, and hunter/jumper courses.

Rosie adores getting her massage, five minutes in and she’s stretching like a cat and letting out huge sighs of relief! I think I have a thing for chestnut mares, what do you think?🙂
