About the Author

Helle Katrine Kleven was born in Norway but lived in Germany since 1988. Kleven began as a physical therapist for humans before training in England and Germany to apply her knowledge to horses. She pursued work as an equine physical therapist starting in 1996 and is now well known for her popular courses and lectures. Kleven supervised the horses of the German Eventing Team and the Endurance Team in an official capacity from 1998-2000.


Readers will find practical how-to guidance in the most popular therapeutic modalities, as well as cutting-edge alternatives that are currently gaining ground: fascia work, stretching, massage, stability and strengthening exercises, laser therapy, kinesiotaping, and much more. With this incredible course in preventive and rehabilitative techniques, horse owners and professionals will be thoroughly prepared to ensure their horses' comfort and well-being. --Equine VIP "With knowledge about the correct movement patterns, riders and trainers will be able to recognize how to support the developmental success and physical resilience of the horse, and can adjust their conditioning and training plan accordingly. This applies to all branches of equestrian sport, from amateur riders to pleasure riders to top professionals." --Bettina Hoy, Olympic and World Equestrian Games Medalist in Eventing
