Introduction to Equine Touch with Dr Ivana Ruddock-Lange

October 29th 9am -5pm

Dr Ivana Ruddock-Lange is a qualified veterinary surgeon and former university lecturer in anatomy from the Czech Republic. Ivana first studied the Equine Touch in 1999 with Jock Ruddock, the founder of Equine Touch.


After they married, she partnered him worldwide in the research, development and teaching of this unique discipline. As the Director of Education, Ivana brings with her to the Equine Touch an eclectic wealth of training and knowledge from the orthodox veterinary world, as well as her interest in other holistic modalities – homeopathy, acupuncture and nutrition. Since Jock's untimely death in 2011, Ivana has continued their work, promoting and developing Equine Touch worldwide.


Ivana’s teaching technique has been described as enthusiastically brilliant and totally professional. A consummate researcher and instructor she leaves no answerable question unanswered with her outstanding knowledge of allopathic, energy and many other practical healing techniques created for the equine and small animal.


Helping Horses by Educating Humans.

Most horses suffer at some time in their lives. Being horses, the ultimate prey animals that have survived for millions of years by hiding all weaknesses, they continue to hide their problems from us. It is important that we all learn how to recognize the pains and discomforts that plague them.


The Equine Touch is a non-diagnostic, non-invasive Equine Bodywork system which is an holistic soft tissue address, affecting mostly connective tissue – muscles and tendons, joint capsules and ligaments using a very specific move.


On this introduction day, Ivana will demonstrate the Equine Touch using the Centre horses. She will explain what she is feeling, where the roots of unsoundness may lie and how to improve how each horse moves.
