Our Story

Since January 1st 2018, Valley Equine Massage has offered exquisite sport massage therapy to all horses whether they be young or old, work or show. Our excellent Massage Therapist loves working with animals, especially horses. Our goal as a local, small business is to meet the needs of Equine Massage for the horses in the Bitterroot Valley and surrounding areas.

Massage benefits all horses; Ranch horses, Barrel Racers, Sorting and Penning, Reiners, Mountain Trail, Pleasure, Jumpers, Hunters, Dressage, and the Retired horse.

Is your horse; the young, the elderly, the performance, the pasture buddy, the injured or ill? Then massage may be an added modality of care, your horse deserves.

In 2019, Valley Equine Massage LLC began offering services in Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy. This has allowed for an expansion of services to the Bitteroot Valley and allows Valley Equine to provide even better care to your Equine Family.
