Montaro had his first session with certified BodyTalk practitioner, Güliz Ünlü, about seven months ago.
Güliz also runs animal communication workshops and is trained in Equi-Bow (the equine version of Bowen Therapy). So she tells us what’s happening in this session as she goes along, and what Montaro is communicating to her. It’s interesting that in this session Montaro needs more of the hands-on bodywork to shift a jaw mis-alignment – and what Güliz suspects is tension, that is giving him headaches…
p.s. Güliz (gew-liz) also runs distance sessions for people and animals. So if your horse, dog, cat etc is having difficulty, feel free to reach out and have a 15-minute free session.
Jini Patel Thompson is a natural health writer and Lazer Tapping instructor. She began riding at age 2 in Kenya, and got her first horse at age 8 in Alberta, and so continues a life-long journey and love affair with these amazing creatures.

This is so beautiful and affirming to hear Guliz’s way of working. I also hear/see a lot from horses when I am near them and they are very clear with me about what’s going on, but the WHY or cause is not always clear.
One observation? (and this might get addressed later in the video, I’m only at 15minutes) I notice the horse is leaning way forward with her front legs behind her shoulders quite a bit. This can come from many causes including problems with the stay-apparatus. So some things to explore might be trimming angles in the feet? Not that I see an obvious problem there. I’m curious what you think Jini.
There’s your good eye Jai! Kesia is a month delayed on their trim and yep, toes need to be cut back. They’re getting trimmed today actually! xo
me again. So great that the session helped him heal up fast! Intention is so powerful eh? We need to remember this in our own lives, for our own healing. 🙂
Do you think he banged his mouth on the metal grates? I think I read before (in your writing or videos, I can’t remember) that you have tried slow feeder bags but they just destroyed them. Did you also try netting in the box feeders? With large enough holes? I only ask because the only time I’ve seen horses ruin slow feeder bags is because the hay wasn’t suitable for the hole size and also for the psychological needs of the horse (they weren’t acclimated to the bags sufficiently before owners tried to slow down their consumption). For my old guy who had been fed ‘normally’ for 22 years before he came into my life (normally being 3x’s a day unfortunately) it took him 3 years to really KNOW that he always had food and in the end I could put out a lot of hay in large holes (well he was old too and I didn’t want to stress his tmj) and could totally trust he wouldn’t over eat. He knew what he needed and how to balance himself. Anyway, I know you know your critters so I dont know if this is helpful to you or not. But maybe it will be to someone reading this 🙂 It’s all for the love of horses.
Totally appreciate the feedback/ideas! And yes, I think it was the grate. Everyone else was fine, just him. But he did it when I switched to a smaller grate and also tested loading the hay differently, to make it harder to extract, as I couldn’t get low sugar hay for a lot of this year and Montaro (especially) had really chubbed up. As soon as he showed me his tooth, we switched back to the bigger grate and easy hay extraction and he healed up in less than about a week. Someone did post a link to Nibble Net webbing on the video though and I would definitely like to try that next! See if it can survive Audelina stomping on it 🙂
This is brilliant Güliz, only two days ago I was wondering wistfully if there might ever be a sequel to the first session! And now it just showed up. I absolutely love watching you work and completely resonate with it. Sending much gratitude and love. : ))))
