Read below to see how clients and their horses feel after a whole body massage session.
"He was yawning within minutes of Erin touching him! The lower lip began hanging down a few minutes later, so I know he was enjoying it!"
"Erin is fantastic! Daisy was rehabbing back from a bowed tendon when Erin first started working with her. Daisy took some time to get use to the idea of body work, but soon looked forward to seeing Erin and really has soaked up all the attention and Erin’s positive energy! I love the post massage session notes. They are super helpful! Erin has great insight and has really bonded with Daisy. Erin has become part of Daisy’s monthly body work routine."- Jessica
"She’s got a great way with the horses. Uses multiple technique and sends notes after each session that are understandable! Both of my horses have responded so well to their sessions. Erin also leaves good “homework” for trouble areas. I’ve been super happy!!!"-E. O.
"Erin listened to everything I said about each horse and worked with each as calm as could be. All four of my horses absolutely enjoyed their massages. Russell even jumps smoother."
"Arlo continues to feel better than he has in years. He is sound and more comfortable than he has been in a long time."
"When asked to talk about Erin Barbato I can only say one thing. Incredible. During the equine certification program at the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy, I witnessed her become a highly skilled, intuitive, and responsive massage therapist. She goes above and beyond what is required of her to ensure successful outcomes, be it taking exams, learning new techniques, or working with horses in her care. She has learned to really listen to what the horse is telling her. She respects their wishes and still manages to offer them comfort and relaxation during her sessions. I would happily have her work on my own horses, that is how much I trust her."

"No bucking from Hank since Erin visited. We look forward to having her here again."
"Can you please come work on him every day....the power he had today, I've never managed that much suspension out of him. He was on fire!"-Lila R.
