Welcome to Equine Refine

Human athletes use massage and stretching exercises to prepare and recover from training and competing, so equine massage therapy is becoming more and more popular for our supreme athlete – the horse! Like us, horses can suffer from muscular pain too.


Danielle Jones is based in Cardiff and covers the south of Wales. Danielle uses a unique blend of Equinology massage techniques and sports massage to help your horse move as freely and comfortably as possible, whether they are a happy hacker or a competition horse.


This approach uses a combination of massage, stretching and other hands on techniques to relieve tension and muscle spasms.
