KLICK Equine Sports Massage has got off to a great start and I have had some wonderful new clients. 

One special little pony called Leon is one that I am particularly pleased with. He was referred to me by Carl Wain. Leon has laminitis and has been in his box for the last 4 months and the laminitis is just getting progressively worse to the stage that this poor pony is only able to stand for about 10 minutes at a time and while standing is constantly weight shifting.
 
I went to visit him just over a week ago to give him a massage (with my Reiki twist) and I had a call the next morning to say he was standing at the door trying to get out. Since then he has been going out in the school for an hour a day walking round and even trying to play. I went back again tonight and I can’t believe the change in this amazing little pony. His movement was much better and he seemed more comfortable. His owner says he now stands without as much weight shifting, he wants to move about and he has his spark back. So looking forward to the progressive journey of this little pony.
