Equine sports massage therapy is a relatively new field and is just now gaining acceptance in the horse world. There aren't many trained equine sports massage therapists out there, so now is a great time to begin your career and get a jump on the competition!

How much you make as an equine sports massage therapist will depend on where you work and on the rates charged by other therapists in your area. Most equine sports massage therapists find they can charge anywhere from twenty-five to eighty dollars for a sixty- to ninety-minute massage.

More important than what you charge for your services will be how you market yourself. You have to get to know the local veterinarians, trainers, and horse owners and must show them you're a skilled professional. You have to be able to show how what you do is of benefit to their horses. Then, once you've convinced them to give your work a try, you have to put your talent to work. As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding!
