CONSIDERING THE HORSE: MIND & BODY 15th-17th October 2019

A Clinic with Jim Masterson & Mark Rashid

Jim Masterson, working with the USA Endurance team and WEG 2010
Mark Rashid is a horse trainer known for his ability to understand the horse’s point of view and solve difficult problems with communication rather than force.  He began working with horses at the age of 10 when he met “the old man” who taught him to work with horses, not against them, and to listen to what the horse is trying to say.

Jim Masterson teaches equine bodywork in which changes in the horse’s behaviour and relaxed movements enable the horse to release structural tension that may affect performance and behaviour.

Both are internationally acclaimed clinicians known for working with rather than on or against the horse.  Both have long recognised that a large percentage of training, behavioural and performance problems stem from physical discomfort or restrictions in the horse, and that pushing the horse through physical issues is not the answer.

When Jim & Mark work together, the resulting change in the horse – and the knowledge that comes out of this interaction between Mark, Jim, the horse and the rider – is exponential.  As Jim has noted: “When we work together, the whole ends up being greater than the sum of the parts,  This is true not just for the participants, but for Mark and me as well.  It’s a never-ending learning experience”.

The Combined clinic with Mark and Jim is now fully booked but individual lessons with both horsemen are still available. Private lessons with Mark Rashid are £175 and private lessons with Jim Masterson are £225. Please go to to book into a private lesson.

Spectator tickets are available at £60/day (£65 on the door) or £150 for all three days. Tickets can be purchased at
