Intertwined Equine, LLC
Servicing Montana, North Dakota and beyond with high quality, thorough musculoskeletal therapies for whole horse (and canine) health and wellbeing.
We are a niche traveling practice within the high plains region of the States. Originally founded from the transformation of Lindsay's elderly mare while at University, the practice expanded to multiple states, a national reputation and many certifications along the way.
A continual student of the horse, Lindsay is proud to offer her musculoskeletal therapies with a focus on the mind-body connection to unlock the power of mobility for all equines.

Who We Serve
We strive to assist owners in the pursuit of optimal wellness for their horse, and specialize in innovative approaches and our precise anatomical knowledge and skillset for those struggling to get to the root of the problems they face. Our vast experiences and trainings provide a unique therapeutic approach compared to most bodyworkers.
We offer a variety of hands on modalities including functional osteopathy (we are a student), certified massage, Masterson Method, KT taping, myofascial and trigger point release and more.
In addition to 1 on 1 appointments, we offer private coaching, consulting, and training opportunities.
The catch phrase for the Masterson Method is "Beyond Horse Massage", to highlight the unique and innovative approach his method takes to improve the performance, comfort, and well-being of horses.
The Masterson Method uses a combination of touch, massage, and movement to release tension, improve range of motion, and enhance communication between the horse and handler.
Massage & Myofascial
A therapeutic technique that involves applying manual manipulation and massage techniques to the muscles and soft tissues of horses.
It serves several purposes and can be beneficial for various reasons: physical relaxation, improved circulation, enhancement of bond, pain relief, flexibility and mobility.
Myofascial release focuses on releasing tension and restrictions within the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, and organs in the body. It aims to improve flexibility, reduce pain, and restore optimal function.
The fascia is a continuous web-like structure that runs throughout the body, providing support and allowing for efficient movement. However, due to various factors such as trauma, inflammation, or poor posture, the fascia can become tight, restricted, or adhered, leading to pain and limited range of motion.
Scar tissue is best served by these techniques!
Animal osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal issues in animals.
It is based on the principles of osteopathy, which is a holistic approach to healthcare that emphasizes the interrelationship between the body's structure and its function.
In animal osteopathy, practitioners use manual techniques, such as soft tissue manipulation, stretching, and joint mobilization, to address musculoskeletal problems in animals.
These techniques aim to restore balance, improve mobility, and alleviate pain or discomfort in the animal's body.
Physiological pads are a type of equine therapy tool designed to improve balance, stability, and overall body awareness in horses. Our pads consist of soft foam pads of varying densities and thicknesses.
By providing the horse with a stable but yielding surface to stand on, we will challenge their proprioceptive system.
Proprioception refers to the horse's ability to sense the position, movement, and balance of their body.
By standing on the physiological pads, horses are encouraged to adjust their weight distribution and make subtle postural changes, thereby improving their body awareness and balance.
The pads come in different densities, allowing for customization based on the horse's needs and comfort level.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation therapy, involves the use of specific wavelengths of red light to promote healing and provide therapeutic benefits. It has gained popularity in various fields, including human and veterinary medicine.
Red light therapy utilizes red or near-infrared light in the range of 600 to 1000 nanometers. When this light is applied to the body's tissues, it is believed to penetrate into the cells and stimulate various cellular processes.
Some proposed benefits of red light therapy include: improved tissue healing and circulation, and pain relief.
KT Tape, also known as Kinesiology Tape, is a type of elastic therapeutic tape that is commonly used in sports and athletic activities, including with horses.
The tape is applied directly to the hair in specific patterns and tensions to provide support, stability, and pain relief to muscles and joints.
In equine applications, KT Tape is often used to address various issues such as muscle strains, joint instability, swelling, and inflammation.
It can be applied to specific areas of the horse's body to support injured or fatigued muscles, promote proper biomechanics, and aid in the recovery process.
It can help reduce pain, enhance circulation, and provide a proprioceptive feedback to the horse, promoting better body awareness and control.
Equine craniosacral therapy (CST) focuses on the craniosacral system (CS) of horses which refers to the membranes, cerebrospinal fluid, and structures surrounding the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull (cranium) down to the sacrum within the pelvic cavity.
The CS plays a vital role in maintaining the health and functioning of the central nervous system. CST aims to identify and address any restrictions or imbalances in the CS of horses.
Practitioners use gentle touch and subtle movements to assess and release areas of tension, compression, or dysfunction within the system. The goal is to facilitate the body's self-healing mechanisms, promote relaxation, and restore optimal balance and function by assessing the CS system's rhythm and detect any areas of restriction or imbalance.
Private training opportunities available to owners, horse professionals and other therapists.
We can offer timeframes that suit your need, provide regular mentorship, and coach on many modalities as well as anatomy & biomechanics, or evaluation and assessment skillsets.
We offer a variety of clinics and workshops, and can craft unique opportunities to match your needs. Please contact us for more information!

Lindsay truly inspired me to take in all accounts of the horse. Anatomy, health, type of work, etc. It made me want to deep dive into an anatomy pit and I couldn't be more excited.
She really instilled a lot of confidence in me.
She's an amazing teacher and taught me easier or better ways to do techniques than what I was doing.

Lindsay taught me how to work with some horses that really needed fine tuned listening skills and help them even if things were modified or looked different than a typical checklist of the techniques.

I will definitely utilize the services again. My horses are used for pleasure/trail riding and bring me happiness and peace. The least I can do is bring them happiness and peace with Lindsay’s talented hands and her expansive knowledge!

Veterinarians are seen as our Partners
Bodywork modalities can be a wonderful compliment to veterinary medicine, but it is not a substitute. We do not practice veterinary medicine and will refer accordingly. Our aim is to partner with health and wellness professionals to complement to ensure complete care as needed.
Some of the common reasons we partner with veterinarians might include the need for diagnosis, veterinary treatment/management including x-ray, ultrasound, medications and pain management.
