“This is a must read. I love that we have fun. I love that everyone who I work with has a goal of bettering themselves without getting stuck in “the race”.

It immediately brought to mind a horse she had brought me in to work with named Shorty. Shorty’s situation is not rare, and as my experience grows, so do the number of horses I meet that still resonate with trauma from their pasts. This is a shout out of huge respect to the horse owners & trainers out there that refuse to get caught up in the “Rat Race”; the ones who remember their love for the horse and do right by them. You guys ROCK!
And this post is a nod of respect to Chrissy Christensen of Core Equestrian; she is a consummate professional and her consideration for the horse and his well-being is as important as supporting her client’s goals. I am working with one of her ‘project’ horses named Shorty. He has huge talent, was shown on the International Jump Circuit in Europe and within his young lifetime had been pushed too fast and too hard breaking down at the age of 9. The break downs professionals see all too often are not only in the body but in the mind and spirit.
Shorty has white scar fur running midline atop his withers. He came to Chrissy a year ago with open wounds there.
He arrived fractured in mind, body, and spirit.
She has been working to help him come back in every way possible.
The first day I met Shorty
I was brought in to Shorty’s healing team in March as he had reached a wall in his healing progress. We are moving him through it. When I met Shorty the first time, his anxiety and trauma was screaming like a banshee in his energy body as I scanned him. And despite his state, he was the sweetest, kindest horse.
It takes an open mind and integrity towards the Horse to be willing to take the time & effort, and to step beyond known solutions on the path to help one’s horse heal. Initially, I gave Chrissy a demo on Shorty scanning him and telling her exactly what I read in his Energy Body and Physical Body. I had no history on him but I accurately described his known issues, provided more information on his state, and confirmed her intuition about why he was slow to heal further. I outlined a way to help him overcome his current impasse.
Hats off to Chrissy for being open-minded, as she put it to me this way the first day we met to discuss Shorty: “Karen, I don’t know if this Energy Work really does work, but if it doesn’t hurt him, can make a difference, and helps Shorty come back, I’m all for it!”.
Nowadays Shorty has a team focusing on all aspects of his complete healing. He is getting his mojo back!
Huge respect to a horse trainer who has this horse’s back.

Here’s a few more vids & an update in case you want to see more on Shorty! 🙂
Most recently in our 3rd Session, I was blown away! He is such a smart horse. He had received some poll/atlas work with the Masterson Method ‘Poll-up’ technique during the previous session and was a little nervous about it. This time, he put his chin on my shoulder and ASKED for the work! Then a little while later, he walked over to my medicine bag and nosed the panel where the essential oils were. So i offered him a selection and he chose doTERRA’s Aromatouch & Deep Blue (both supportive of pain and inflammation relief). He breathed them in for a long time, then I applied them to his injured tendon and sore spine. Then Shorty walked back to the bag and nosed the box with my RedLight in it. And waited for me to give him some Red Light Therapy. Talk about being open to the work. He was literally leading it! Lol.
