Tina Watkins EST, EEBW3 desire to help the equine body work community has been growing for the last several years. It’s through mentorship herself with some of the industries top veterinarians that has helped Tina develop a unique way of looking at the horse, and rocketed her body work sessions from good to phenomenal. The body work community has embraced Tina as a mentor locally and the expansion of this was the next step.

Inhand Equine Therapy is excited to announce our Mentorship Program!

There is nothing like real time experience when working on tissue to deepen your knowledge and explore what you are feeling under your hands.

But what if you're not sure what you are feeling? Or maybe you know what you're feeling and need a new tool for your toolkit to make the changes you seek.

Tina’s Mentorship Program will:

·   Be specifically designed to your individual requirements or group requirements

·   Allow you to share in Tina’s experience and her ability to connect with individuals will allow you to improve your body work practice by attaining and refining your skill set(s)

·   Help improve your analysis of tissue and biomechanical issues

·   Enhance how and what you feel in the tissue

·   Add tools to your tool belt that create change and help you attain your professional development goals

·   Mentoring is an excellent way to connect, learn and develop understanding and may qualify for PDH


Inhand Equine Mentorship Program is a two-fold initiative that participants can optimize for increasing their knowledge and developing a problem specific specialty.


Inhand's why, on mentorship

The more we at Inhand learn, the more we know there is SO much more to learn. Our founding body worker, Tina Watkins is a seeker. She has taken courses or done mentorship with Veterinarians from all over the world  yearly for the last 25 years of practice. Through this learning, she is sure that coming together to learn from one and other is KEY to really understanding the function of the equine athlete and how we as wellness practitioners can delve deeper into uncovering the core of what is limiting these athletes from being a top level performer.
