Author of The Well Adjusted Horse, Daniel Kamen is a leading American Chiropractor who has been successfully
manipulating horses and teaching the techniques for decades. He has developed a comprehensive range of 30 
manipulation, mobilisation and palpation techniques that can help mobilise virtually all joints involved in equine
sports performance for comfort enhancement.  Caroline Lindsay travelled to America in 1995 to learn the techniques
from Daniel and has hosted his only visits to the UK to hold his sell-out seminars.  She has been using his
techniques for twenty years on every horse that she treats, with excellent results.  In her experience, combining
Daniel Kamen's manipulation and mobilisation techniques with soft tissue therapy makes for a powerful treatment
