What is Equine Osteopathy?

"Equine Osteopathy is the specific application of the principles and standards developed in human osteopathy, translated, adapted and modified to the unique structure and physiology of the equine. Equine Osteopathy is a manual therapy that works successfully with veterinary medicine to aid horses in staying healthy even with the unnatural demands that are placed on them in their life with people."

This multifaceted therapeutic approach combined with a sincere appreciation of each horse's unique circumstances are what facilitates the feel and effectiveness "X Factor" has become known for, and is what can ultimately unlock your horse's x-factor.


"Erin has the trust and confidence of our entire farm. She is dedicated to finding the connections that others don't see. The hours she puts in to her work is impressive. We wouldn't have anyone else out to keep our horses going."
-Jonathan M.

"If you're looking for the most knowledgeable, effective, and intuitive practitioner for your horses, look no further than X Factor. You get answers to questions you didn't know you had."
Jan Y.

"We wanted to keep our old show horse comfortable, so we hired X Factor to come out and keep him limber. Ater 6 months of bodywork and protocols, he's firing harder and stopping bigger than he did when he was 5. A huge thanks to Erin for all her suggestions and hard work to bring our boy back." - Jim B.
