Small, but as stubborn as a pony…

That is my business, small and stubborn.  Currently Solstice Equine Massage Therapy, I will be changing the name of my business to Solstice Equine Bodywork when I achieve certification in the Masterson Method.  My goal for that achievement is 2020 – so this is likely the last Small Business Saturday special I will be offering as my current business.  Hmmm…

I asked people on Facebook, friends at the farm and he who listens while being fed bananas what I should offer this year…   143

He who likes bananas had a good day (he likes them best when the peels are spotted like an Appy, jus sayin).  Half a bunch munched he gave me the look that says: “So what have you learned from horses?”  Oh, I forgot… It’s “Make what you want easy and desirable, no?”  Yes.  And so I am repeating the offer I gave last year as people seemed to enjoy it and… I was out of bananas.

This year’s special is…  Hire me for two equine bodywork sessions – massage and/or Masterson Method bodywork – and the third session is at no cost (although mileage cost might apply because I still want you to pay for the gas past 30 miles).  Very good deal.  I know, I created it.  I would want it.

What I really want is for more horse people to hire me.  I am thrilled by what I have to offer to horses and, therefore, their people.  Whether your horse is traveling and competing year round, on stall rest, munching with his gang in the pasture, I have something to offer to increase his (or her) comfort and performance.  I began this career because of my own horses.  I want to work on yours, hence this deal.

If you are interested in this special what you need to do is let me know that you are, it’s that simple.  No need to pay up front, after you pay for two sessions (this offer is good through the end of June, 2020) I will provide the 3rd and go home.  You can apply the sessions to one horse or different horses.  If you are participating and would like me to send you a gift certificate for a session please let me know at or message me through the Facebook site.  My work makes for happy horse friends, barn managers and trainers.  Banana boy said so.

So, this Small Business Saturday, this coming weekend, I hope to hear from many of you claiming this special.  Feel free to call and leave me a message at 330-627-5411, message me through Facebook, or e-mail me at  I can have gift certificates created and e-mailed to you within two days.

May all of you and all of your horses be warm and well and happy.  I am grateful for you all…

Happy thanksgiving,

Who I am Every horse benefits from therapeutic massage. Every horse matter to me. I have long understood the importance of muscular health for comfort and performance. As a physical therapist, with an interest in sports medicine, I served people. After rescuing and rehabilitating my first horse, nearly 10 years ago, I knew I wanted to practice equine massage therapy. I witnessed the healing it promoted in my horses and am determined to offer my services to as many other horses as I can. It is an honor and a delight to work on your horse. Ruta
