Profile On: Susan Hamilton, Animal Therapist

Susan was kind enough recently to answer some questions about her career at Susan Hamilton’s Animal Therapy.

How much of your day/week is related to horses?
I attempt to spend 6 – 8 hours a week with my horse. That is difficult to do.  When I can, I also volunteer at a rescue to work on their horses. I also volunteer at a local Greyhound Rescue.

What is it exactly that you do?
I use acupressure and energy work as well as some stretches etc. to work on animals.  I can also test for potential problems such as thyroid, or parasite issues.

In this field of work, is it possible to be a full time professional and earning a liveable income?
Yes it is possible to make a good living at this. I am on my way but not there yet.

What are the general steps taken to be employed in such a role?
I spent 2 years completing the Communication with All Life University’s mastery animal communication program and nutritional classes.  I also completed a “Where Have All the Horsemen Gone” with Dr. Regan Golob who does a lot of work with animals and people… He has amazing knowledge – I would love to spend a month or so with him.

Favourite horse memory?

Winning a blue ribbon in a hunter class…
In general having fun “playing” with my horse

Future goals?
Building up my business

Best thing about your sport/profession?
I love working with animals, helping them to be healthy and happy.  I don’t have a boss!!
