Four-Legged Clients

Whether you aim to keep a high-performance animal in top competing shape or just want to soothe your pet’s emotions, BCST can help.

In-Person Sessions

BCST empowers the animal’s body to heal itself. As a health maintenance program, BCST can keep performance, endurance and show horses at the top of their game. I have had the honor and privilege to be of service and learn from the most amazing animals. Besides horses, I also work with dogs, cats, sheep, calves, rabbits, boa constrictors, an exotic bird, and guinea pigs (yes, they too have emotions and feelings). I am always amazed at how quickly animals can heal themselves with just a little support.

Remote Sessions

When an in-person session is not feasible, BCST works the same way remotely. We are all made of energy that knows no limits or boundaries, which makes it possible for me to connect with your animal’s energy field long distance.  You will text me a picture of your animal companion.  We will schedule a time for the session.  We will talk afterwards to discuss the session details.

Back in the Competition

Five days before going into the North American Young Riders Competition, ​ Del Destino was lame, and couldn’t compete. He received a BCST session, plus acupuncture and chiropractic. Later that day, he passed FEI veterinary inspection. He competed the next day, jumping better than he had in months.  He received two more sessions in between each day’s competitions. His rider was very happy that he finished ninth overall, bouncing back very quickly, given he had been off for a week. His rider also received a session and remarked, “I feel looser, taller, straighter, and I am carrying myself better in the saddle.”

Huge Turnaround

Romeo is an 11 yr old, Prix St. George I -1, schooling Grand Prix,  dutch warmblood  imported in 2009. After settling in for a few weeks, I noticed he was fearful and stiff. The tension in his neck and back caused a lack of rhythm and suppleness under saddle. He was very anxious about body grooming, and was always on the defensive. After three sessions, his eyes softened, he is more curious, and I immediately noticed a new willingness to trust. Instead of hiding in the back of his stall, he  warmly greets me. Under saddle, he stretches for the bit more, is more responsive to my legs, his back relaxed and he is more comfortable to ride. He has become a loving and sensitive horse, while honing his athletic ability and competitive skills.

Amazing Show Career!

C’est La Vie, as a 4-year-old Morgan, was left with a weak hind end after two injuries. He was unable to canter without anxiety and difficulty picking up leads. Chiropractic adjustments were only temporary fixes. BCST session results are always dramatic! He is now stronger, steady, rhythmic and confidant both physically and mentally. His canter is fluid and transitions are done with ease. Receiving sessions for the last ten years has been amazing for both of us. BCST not only restores balance and health, it also harmonizes us as a partnership. BCST is a powerful cornerstone for our team and is continually supporting an amazing show career!

No Longer Dangerous!

“Angel is  a 40 yr. old Umbrella Cockatoo that I rescued in 1999. She had no feathers from her neck down, a broken left wing, was malnourished and extremely depressed and lethargic. She blossomed over the last 10 years.  However, she still screamed for hours, was overreactive, unpredictable and  would attack her pitbull housemate as well as my 13 yr. old son, and was environmentally destructive. After three sessions, she no longer attacks the dog, is more relaxed, now thinks before acting, she stopped excessively screaming, and is no longer destructive. She is now fun, playful, loving and sweetly animated. She is also now trustworthy with children and other animals.”

Panicked Horse Learns to Relax

Nicky was subjected to training methods that were not suitable for her. The trainer used intimidation through a harsh bit and hands.  This caused a lot of emotional damage over 2 years with the trainer. As a result, Nicky reacted with panic when she felt confined between the rider’s legs and hands with the mildest bit and acted like she would explode. She was not dangerous to ride, but the rider couldn’t put any kind of pressure on her. After BCST sessions, Nicky gradually lost her panic reactions, and responds to the normal pressures of leg and rein for direction. She also had issues with cantering on the right lead and bending to the right that are gone.

From Shut Down to Affectionate

Luke (17 yr. old Arabian) was a former English Pleasure and Western show horse.  When I adopted him three years ago, he was mentally shut down, had a dead look in his eyes, and would bite, strike, and kick out when basic ground manners were asked for. His body looked very disconnected. He always shook his head after a halter was put on. Chiropractic did not help. After consistent sessions over a year’s time, Luke became a different horse. He now greets visitors, seeks attention, and is very curious about his surroundings. His aggressive behavior stopped. The shape of his head changed and the head shaking stopped. He now looks connected from head to tail.  Luke is now a loving horse who is smart as a whip.

Nervous Yearling Now Well-Adjusted to New Home

G.F. is a yearling appendix quarter horse that was being trailered to a new home in a few days. In preparation for his new surroundings, he was separated from his yearling buddies, and was placed in a stall for the first time. He immediately showed big signs of separation anxiety, was rearing in the stall and fighting containment. He received a BCST session 2 days later. After only 20 minutes, all signs of anxiety, fear, and upset dissipated, and he stopped sweating. The stall pacing also stopped, and he became his quiet, good natured self again. He easily and quietly moved to his new home, and is thoroughly loved and enjoyed by his new owner.

Birth Trauma Resolved

Teddy (4 yr. old appendix quarter horse) became trapped in a rubber tire feeder as a baby. He damaged his neck and spine. The vet diagnosis was “wobblers.”  It was recommended to euthanize him. His owner decided to treat him. He remained stable, but staggered at the walk.  Chiropractic helped slightly. Teddy improved yearly with growth. His neurological signs became moderate. His movement was still very unbalanced at the canter, as if his front and back ends were two different horses. Teddy then received monthly sessions for over a year. He no longer shows signs of any neurological damage.  His canter is now smooth, with both ends moving as one unit. He is now a safe riding horse that is showing beautiful movement and athletic ability.

Birth Trauma Resolved

There was always concern that Little Pete was injurd at birth.  The mare foaled unexpected, resulting in the owner missing the birthing process to assist if needed. When she arrived, she noticed an unusual amount of blood all over the stall. As he grew, behavior problems became apparent. He was very spooky, reactive, and unpredictable. Starting under saddle was more challenging, slower, and more safety precautions that usual were taken.  After a few months of BCST, Little Pete became a different horse.  He is calm and predictable. His whole personality changed along with his ability to think and learn during training. He is now calm,  and safe to ride.
