About Inhand

Each athlete’s time with Inhand includes a consultation to address ongoing and/or new issues, a soft tissue session, a static and dynamic postural assessment and other modalities as required to complete an entire body evaluation. Areas requiring improvement are identified and working in conjunction with riders, owners and the horse’s healthcare team, exercise plans are developed, combining good health and equine/canine physiology to achieve the goals for performance.

Tina has a tremendous amount of knowledge with everything regarding your equine partner; from body movement, fitness, and nutrition. Tina is every easy to communicate with and she always takes the time to provide a detailed explanation to my inquiries. Tina/Inhand provided guidance in creating a fitness plan after my horse had an injury last year. The Inhands Mentor Me is a fabulous program for anyone with a horse in your life, whether you ride or not ! Great detail and so much to learn with hands on practice on a horse. Tina gives feedback while practicing which is great as you can confirm you are doing the techniques correctly. I truly appreciate the wealth of knowledge Tina has and am grateful knowing I can reach out with questions anytime.

Since starting to have my horses worked on by Tina at Inhand I have been so thrilled with the results. Along with the chiropractic work I have done on them the massage/body work Tina does has made a world of difference in their comfort, movement and performance. Not only does Tina help my horses feel their very best she also make sure they continue to be their best in between visits with so many at home exercises and stretches specially picked and suited to the horses and their and individual needs. I always feel my horses and I are cared for in the best way possible, with kindness and compassion from Tina, as well as amazing communication during and in between visits. I have and will continue to recommend these services to anyone who is looking for a body worker for their horses. I can’t say enough good about Tina and Inhand! -Morgan

My horse has been a client of Tina's since I bought him in 2020. Tina strives to give him the best care she can and is always on hand to support us at all times. She is a superstar!

Tina is amazing. My horse loves auntie Tina! I would give 6 stars if I could!
Tina was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and even recommend some things we could do on our own to improve our horse’s health.

I have been a client of Inhand Equine Therapy (for my horse and dogs) for three years. Tina and Cassidy are great with my four legged family - I always see an improvement after each massage.
Tina and her team are an important part of our horses development . Her knowledge of the horse and her interest in our personal goals make it a perfect combination to assist both horse and rider. As we all know when dealing with horses its not always sunshine and roses and she's definitely been a big part of helping me navigate some challenging issues . Not to mention she works closely with Energy Equine which has been an invaluable resource. She also communicates with my coach and provides homework and excercises following a treatment to address weaknesses to improve balance and strength. Again it takes a team and I want to say Thank You Tina and Inhand Equine Therapy for keeping us and our horses happy partners 🥰🐴
