Katherine Lowry


Katherine Lowry is a second generation equine professional. Her original passion was classical Dressage for its spiritual, theoretical, and philosophical advantages in the development of horse and rider. After pursuing training in a number of different disciplines including Combined Driving Western Dressage, Reining, and Eventing she developed an interdisciplinary program and has run a successful boarding and training facility for over 12 years.


After suffering an accident that left her with an injured back, concussion, and debilitating nerve pain, Katherine was pushed to look outside of equines due to a poor prognosis for recovery. She dove into how to heal with movement and massage.


Through the process of rebuilding her own body from injury she found that stepping away from the realm of classical and modern riding modalities and into more ancient movement practices allowed her - and eventually her students - to find a deeper core balance and strengthen as riders. Katherine has created a human path starting with developing connection to yourself and the world around you through breath, building to engagement and receptivity of the spine, and ending with rotational movement of the pelvis.

Katherine is available for Distance Sessions, Clinics or in-person sessions.

Her clients come to her from all fields of horsemanship, with the knowledge that better understanding our horse’s behavior and expanding our connection can help refine communication no matter what modality is used.

Samantha Klink

Wayne, NJ

 Samantha always loved horses and grew up finding creative ways to spend more time with them. Shortly after graduating from college she became a Certified PEMF Magna Wave Practitioner. She started her business after buying her first horse, Poco, because it helped her tremendously. With it, Samantha realized everything she thought was a behavioral or training issues was actually due to pain. She expanded her work to not only help horses, but dogs as well.


Although she has had incredible results with PEMF, something was still missing. That is what led her to BTMM and Lazaris Nerve Release Technique. Her horse, Poco, had undiagnosed lameness and through this work she has improved. Samantha continues to expand her knowledge about horses, their bodies, and how to help riders be the best partners for their horses. Now that she is certified in Lazaris Nerve Release, Samantha is excited to help more horses through this technique, as well as PEMF and cold laser. 

Aside from bodywork, Samantha works part time at an animal shelter helping to care for dogs and find them loving homes.
