Horses and people have an ancient bond, based in part on our shared innate mammalian capacity to care for one another and to form compassionate, loving and caring social bonds. New evidence has come to light that demonstrates for tens of thousands of years people and horses have shared enduring, cooperative and uniquely collaborative relationships.
Welcome to the EPR Drum Blog, a series of short writings about holistic horse health and a non-force approach to working with horses. Equine Positional Release (EPR) is a system of holistic horse health care. EPR utilises holistic health assessment, holistic non-force manual therapy, including the well being of the horse in the process of assessment and treatment. During the health assessment, the EPR practitioner observes the horse's posture, and notices behavioural and facial signs of pain.
