H.I.P.N.O.M = Horses In Pain, No Money

Horses don't get to choose their owners, and sometimes those owners don't have the financial ability to care for special health needs the horse may develop.  That's where our HIPNOM project comes in.  EET financially supports equine practitioners trained in special therapeutic techniques (like the Masterson Method) that will alleviate pain or discomfort in horses.   HIPNOM has saved horses who were misdiagnosed with ailments that would have had them put down, and through equine massage techniques allowed them to not only avoid death- but thrive again.

Another element of HIPNOM is funding the training of people already in the equine industry to learn additional techniques to help heal horses so that they can fully thrive at the job they already love, and help even more horses in pain.
