1. Kim Bauer-Handling/Training suggestions for each Temperament Type

The video below from the You Tube “Webinars With Wendy” series featuring Kim Bauer, is an excellent resource for learning how each temperament type needs a different approach to training. Kim is a well-known expert and educator in the field of Animal Acupressure and Massage. She began her coursework in Animal Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1999 and then in January of 2005 after fourteen years as a Middle School and Elementary School teacher, Kim created her business, Animal Ease Therapies. She creates individualized, integrated bodywork sessions for each animal that combines her knowledge of Acupressure, Massage, Temperament Typing and numerous other modalities that she has studied over the years. Additionally, Kim is an instructor for the Northwest School of Animal Massage and oversees and teaches the Acupressure certification programs as well as a number of online course offerings.

Thanks to Wendy Murdoch for creating this series and sharing lots of great horse knowledge with us all. If you didn’t see the video she did with me, check it out too at
