My name is Cathy Smyth and I have been operating Realign Equine since qualifying as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist.
I am a member of Equine Therapies of Australia as well as the International Institute for Complementary Therapists.
I have had a passion for horses from an early age, this is not just for the pleasure of riding but also for the amazing bond that is created between the horse and owner. I am also a Registered Nurse with an excellent knowledge base which I have found to be extremely beneficial in understanding the biomechanics of the horse.
One of my passions has always been alternative therapies whether in humans or in animals and now through my experiences in Equine Massage and Red Light Therapy I am seeing the benefits on a daily basis.
Having been around the horse industry for over 30 years in a variety of disciplines I often see horses being unfairly labelled as “naughty”, “dangerous” or just plain “useless” when in fact they are simply in pain and in need of some therapy. These experiences have prompted me to set up Realign Equine in the hope of helping some of the animals and in turn the owners / riders.
