It is great to have you here!

Thank you for your visit.

My name is Ilse Kemp. I am a qualified equine therapist, teacher and first aid trainer.

My biggest passion is helping horses feel and move their best with gentle natural therapeutic methods that work deeply with the nervous system to facilitate improved musculoskeletal functionality and health in general. I work with many different horses: sport horses to shetland ponies and I have a particular interest in racehorses and OTTBs.

This is my 16 year old ex-racer Dushybeag. Dushy is one happy healthy horse and we have a fantastic partnership. I attribute this greatly to the Equine Hanna Somatics (EHS), Equine Massage and Equine Acupressure work I do with him, which helps him feel better mentally, move better physically AND improves our bond because he associates me with feeling good.

Did you know that complementary and natural therapies have been used to help horses for thousands of years, but with the arrival of modern veterinary medicine these traditional methods came to be perceived as less effective and old fashioned? However prior to modern veterinary medicine many excellent results were achieved by natural horse healers.

With Colic the number 1 cause of death in domesticated horses and around 80% of horses having ulcers (Sarah Griffiths, Animal Synergist) more and more horse owners are recognising the way we manage horses needs changing. Including complementary therapies and lifestyle medicine (allowing horses to be horses in environments that resemble their natural way of living) alongside veterinary medicine is the solution to happier healthier horses. And healthier horses ultimately means less vet bills!

LS Equine Therapy’s mission is:

  1. to help equines feel and move their best so they can enjoy a long healthier life with their humans

  2. to empower equestrians with knowledge and skills so they can provide natural health care and lifestyle medicine for improving the wellbeing and musculoskeletal health of their horses.

Education and knowledge is the key!

If you would like to:

  1. help your horse be the best they can be physically and mentally

  2. improve your bond with you horse

  3. learn how YOU can help your horse feel and move better

Get in touch! I can help :)

I look forward to hearing from you. Ilse x
