There are many competing equine and canine sports massage programmes, but which course is the best choice for your certification?

Studying to become an equine (EEBW) or canine (CCBW) body worker involves more than learning a new skill set. You have to demonstrate your talent for this profession to everyone in the equine or canine world, and Equinenergy Ltd teaches you how to do just that! Since 1999, in conjunction with Equinology, Inc., we have raised the bar in continuing education. The courses are taught by veterinarians and specialists in the field: first-hand information only! The evidence-based EEBW and CCBW certification courses are the global gold standard for equine and canine sports massage education. Since 2003, we have partnered with Writtle University College, and the EEBW and CCBW courses form the professional qualifications for students on the BSc Equine/Canine Sports Therapy degree programmes!

Certification is more than just a “piece of paper”: anyone can attend a short sports massage course and buy a certificate. Please do not be fooled by “online” courses, short courses, and courses that do not require case studies and formal testing following onsite training. Many such courses are neither recognised nor respected by professionals in the animal health care field. You may walk out with a certificate, but will you have the skills you need to be an effective practitioner?

Being awarded your certification from Equinenergy Ltd/Equinology, Inc. means that you have completed a prerequisite anatomy study, as well as an intensive residential course integrating both theory and practical skills. It means that you have that you have assimilated the course material: you will have completed case studies and passed a theoretical and practical examination following the residential course.
