Bowen Technique for Horses - from An Alternative Therapists Notebook

The Arab horse, (Jabask Azzeme, or 'Ash'), that Roy has treated is part of the Jabask line,

Mrs Rachel Miller and a few of her friends have acquired some of the Jabask Arab horses and are interested in tracing the history of the breed in the UK.

Apparently the horses were imported into the UK from the United States in 1990, about one hundred of them being at a stud in North Wales. The owner of the stud left the country in 1996, his son then selling the surviving horses through Brightwell Malvern Sales (Worcestershire) in 1998.

Mrs Miller would be pleased to hear from anyone who has knowledge of the whereabouts or the history of the horses. She can be contacted via email : Moldequine@aol.com.

An Arab horse, registered name 'Jabask Azzeme' (known as 'Ash'), was born 1995. In 2000 at the age of 5 years, he fell into a bad situation, allegedly having been kept full-time in a small stable and grossly underfed. In August 2003 at 8 years of age he was 'rescued' by Tess' Goodwin.

A sad picture, Ash before Bowen Therapy early in 2004.

Tess had looked after him well, she had built him up and he had settled in quite well. His muscular skeletal problems were fairly extensive, with muscle tremors and lack of muscle tone and weakened hindquarters.

Ash after three and half  treatment

Tess' comments: "Muscle spasm in weight bearing leg resolved a few days after the last treatment.

His posture and paces have gradually improved and he lies down much less and plays with the other horses more.

Ash still has some tightness through his rib cage towards his hindquarters. The 'breakover' point of his hind leg is too short due to the tightness of tendons between hock and fetlock, but his improvement due to Bowen Therapy is most marked."

Ash had been 'rescued' by Tess, and by dint of good care and treatment with the Bowen Technique had been nursed back to health. Tess realised that Ash could not be entered into any competitions, nor ridden, and the option of accustoming him to pulling a dogcart was a possibility. The advantage of the latter option was that Ash could be introduced and become familiar with a wider world than his field. It would also make Ash a more attractive proposition to any prospective purchaser, (rescuing horses is an expensive undertaking).
