I attended Ruth Mitchell-Golladay’s Equine MFR1 course in June 2018. I was very impressed with the high standard of teaching and organisation of the course. The attending candidates were all of a high calibre: vets, chiropractors, McTimoney and sports massage practitioners, all of whom had a heap of experience under their belts which made for a really lively and interesting lot of questions and debate. I especially liked the amount of science put behind the practical. There was plenty of practical practice on humans and horses – a very enjoyable and informative course which gave me lots of confidence and extra tools to use in my everyday treatments.

I found CN3000 extremely stimulating and pedagogically relevant as you are hands-on dogs straight away, putting the theory in perspective with the practical aspect. The content and the delivery were of the highest quality. I cannot recommend the course more.

Absolutely loved my course ran by Equinenergy® at Writtle college. It was intensive and hard work but it was very informative and worth every penny. I love learning and wasn’t disappointed with content and the level of detail. Really looking forward to the next one.
