Welcome, horse enthusiasts!

 

I’m Layla Harris, the heart and soul behind Horse Led Healing and Equine Foundational Therapy. My journey has led me to learn from some of the best in the field, and I’m committed to continuing my education. I’ve had the privilege of training many talented bodyworkers across the US, particularly in Texas and Oklahoma. While I’m not a veterinarian or chiropractor, I am a Certified Holistic Equine Bodywork Practitioner and Instructor and will be teaching you many helpful modalities to facilitate your horse’s healing journey. 

 

Now, I’m thrilled to share with you a unique approach I’ve developed called Equine Foundational Therapy. This method is a distillation of my most valuable learnings from online and in-person courses, books, real-life experiences as a professional bodyworker since 2014, and my time as an instructor for Holistic HorseWorks, LLC from 2018-2022. 

 In this course (PART 1), I’ll guide you on how to visually and physically evaluate your horse and document your journey with photos and thought-provoking questions. We’ll explore a variety of simple yet highly effective techniques and modalities, including: 

  • Coregulation, Mirror Neurons, and Trust 

  • CranioSacral Therapy 

  • MyoFascial Release Techniques 

  • A muscle and nerve release technique I’ve fondly dubbed “Twang that Thang” 

  • Lymphatic Drainage Sweeps 

  • A system rebooting technique that enhances body awareness, I call “Rock the Baby” 

 

Yes, the names are a bit silly, but who says learning can’t be fun? 

We’ll also delve into your horse’s nutritional blueprint and the Remove, Replenish, Restore concept. Plus, we’ll discuss the importance of saddle fitting, dentistry, farrier or barefoot trimmer balance, and a balanced rider. As a bonus, I’ll show you how to give your horse a relaxing magnesium soak, or as I like to call it, a “Spa Day”. 

To support your journey, I’ll be offering a Live Zoom session on the 1st of every month (unless it falls on an In-Person Clinic weekend or extreme weather doesn’t permit it). My vision for this day is that you’ll be at the barn, next to your noble steed, so I can guide you through sections of the workbook alongside one of my horses. It’s a “monkey see, monkey do” style of learning. Subject to change based on sign-ups and interest. Private Zoom sessions will also be made available for an extra fee. I’m so glad you’re here and if there’s anything I can do to help support you in this learning process of helping your horse to feel and perform optimally, don’t hesitate to ask!  

*The online completion of PART 1 is the prerequisite to the 3-day in-person intensive. PART 2, a separate course, will include Joint Play/Mobilization and Corrective Exercises. It will only be available for you to take after PART 1 has successfully completed in-person.  More info to come.

 

God Bless and Happy Healing!
