It takes a cohesive team to develop a horse to the Grand Prix in Dressage. Horse, Trainer, Owner, Vet, Shoer, Saddler, and Special Therapists. Mike McCaffrey definitely falls under the catagory of ‘Special’ Therapist. Mike first came into my life almost twenty years ago when my Fourth level horse was diagnosed with EPSM. With Mikes special skills in myo-fascial release he helped that horse to deal with the muscle issues created by EPSM and thrive into the Grand Prix of Dressage. Winning a CDI-W*** and gaining a World Ranking. The second Grand Prix candidate he helped me with was Insulin Resistant but was able to be the youngest horse to qualify for the Prix st Georges Developing Horse National Championships and place 11th in the country with numerous National Championships along the way.
Without Mikes feel of the horse, and understanding of their job, I don’t believe either of the first two horses would have been able to achieve such high levels of Dressage.
I have seen Mike work with all personalities of horses and enjoy seeing how he is able to read their reactions and work with them to help relieve the stresses of hard work. We are able to discuss areas of compensation and resistance and work together to develop the horse to reach their potential.
Once again, Mike and is helping me to bring yet another horse through the levels of Dressage and into high rankings in the Country. H. Wrendition was 5th place at the Developing Horse National Championships in Grand Prix, and has won the Hungarian Horse Association All Breed Award each year he has competed. Mike is an invaluable member of my horses Team.
