“The horse is the ultimate expression of freedom of movement, grace, beauty, spirit, strength and forgiveness, and especially kindness of soul.

It is our privilege to understand and appreciate this, and our obligation to learn how not to interfere with this expression of movement, but to do all we can to encourage and support it.”

– Dr. Beverly Gordon

Our rescue organization had gotten in a four-year-old Thoroughbred mare off the track; Dr. Gordon examined her and taped her hip and sacral area. When the mare was taped, you could see she was immediately more comfortable, and when the tape was removed a few days later, she was greatly improved. I even used the tape on my own hand after a horse accidentally bit me. It really worked great!

As the owner and manager of a large equestrian facility, I am extremely grateful to Dr. Beverly Gordon for the amazing work she has done on my horse’s back. An older thoroughbred with arthritis and kissing spine, her Equi-taping has worked wonders on him! She has also worked on some of my boarder’s horses, and everyone has seen improvement in their horses’ attitude and performance after her treatments.

Dr. Gordon showed me how to tape my Grand Prix dressage horse for a suspensory problem. My vet was amazed at how quickly the swelling was reduced and she commented that Billy’s ankle never looked better. I couldn’t quite believe it myself. I highly recommend Equi-tape to anybody and I will continue to use it on my horses. Thanks Dr. Gordon!

Dr. Gordon,I wanted to take a moment to thank you for introducing us to Equi-taping. I was so impressed by how much more comfortable and relaxed Delilah’s back was after only a few tapings. Amazing how something so non-invasive can make all the difference in my mares comfort.

Dr. Gordon taped Latino, my 18 yo Hanoverian Gelding who was recovering from a hind suspensory injury. I was thrilled to see the tape noticeably reduce the swelling in just a few days. One day I noticed a swelling on Latino’s shoulder, and was eager to once again have him taped. With Dr. Gordon’s advice, I taped him myself and got the same good response. Equi-tape rocks!

When Dr. Gordon examined Ace, he had many painful rigger points, but was much less reactive when he was touched along his back after he was taped, and I felt a huge difference when I rode him. His left side is usually super stiff, resulting in a sketchy right lead. At our dressage show today his right lead received an 8, higher than any other movement of the test!! Equi-tape is definitely awesome. (and it worked great on my ankle, too!)

I once had a horse come to me in training that had been labeled ‘difficult’, a rearer who shut down to all driving aids and refused to go forward. After riding the horse a couple of times, I was convinced this was not a behavioral issue but a legitimate response to pain. Dr. Gordon evaluated the horse, and after a chiropractic adjustment suggested daily equi-taping in the saddle area and over the croup. Within a few days there was already a marked change in the horse’s behavior. Only a month later, with daily taping, and re-assuring corrective riding and gymnastisizing, the horse moved more freely in front of the leg and stopped all rearing. We were also able to work on lateral suppleness and greater throughness, developing smoother half passes and flying changes. Thanks Bev!

Dr. Beverly Gordon Equi- taped my client’s horse’s suspensory several times. The suspensory had filling in it for a long time (the horse had been treated for an injury 3 times!). After Dr. Gordon taped it a few times, the filling significantly decreased!

I have been using Equi-Tape on my horses and myself for 3 years now. Dr. Bev has been extremely helpful and very insightful with her help.

It has helped me perform on 2 serious occasions with shoulder injuries. I was able to finish a tournament even after a shoulder dislocation. It has also helped my injured horses stay in competition with less recovery time between games.
