Don Doran
Equine Performance Consultant

After attending one of our courses, you will never look at a horse the same way again!

At Animal Dynamics , our talent and expertise is in identifying the root causes of equine performance problems and providing the permanent, proper solutions. Don Doran, our program developer and primary course instructor, has 40+ years of experience working with a broad spectrum of equine athletes ranging from Kentucky Derby winners to Olympic contenders. Don generously shares his knowledge and experiences with our students in order to empower them to become better horsemen and women. Our classes have value for amateur owners as well as seasoned professionals. If you are looking for relevant information and new skills that will allow you to help horses achieve their maximum potential, then you are in the right place. We are the leaders in the equine sports massage therapy industry.
Know this: Any touch with good intention promotes wellness. However, educated minds and hands make the difference between a "feel good rub" and a professional equine sports therapy session. There are a lot of people out there performing "rubs" and calling it "therapy". The effectiveness of any equine sports massage therapy session is dependent upon: correct evaluation, use of proper techniques and the skill level and experience of the practitioner.
As with any endeavor, if you want to be the best you can be, you have to work hard and study with the right teachers. Contact us now and let us see how we can help you reach your goals. Office phone 352.591.6025 Email: Info@Animaldynamics.com
