My experience with the MFR course taught by Ruth Mitchel was a very positive, informative and enriching one. With a limited knowledge of equine anatomy, horse releases and behaviour, I wasn’t sure what to expect. To my delight I could easily follow the lectures and apply it practically. Ruth’s teaching was clear and easy to understand. The practical was sublime as what we learned in class came into ‘being’ during the practical sessions with the horses. It was fascinating to actually see the horses release, yawn and relax as we gently applied this healing method on their bodies.

I felt a deep connection with the horse giving me a new understanding of their anatomy and, most importantly… how every part of their bodies, every muscle, fibre, organs, joints and skeletal structure is all connected to each other. With the right touch, pressure and sensitivity… One is able to bring healing to all parts of the horses’ bodies.
