About Dappled Horse Grooming & Massage
Dappled Horse Grooming & Massage is a freelance equine massage & horse grooming service from the Central PA area. Tess has been helping horsemen take care of their best friend and athlete, their horse for over 35 years!

Starting in grade school participating in 4-H, riding horses and barrel racing until finishing high school.  
  Then working on thoroughbred racetracks for 25+ years as groom, foreman, assistant trainer and Trainer/Owner (Varied owners including Jay McMahon of Saratoga). I have no problem with hard work! Retired from training thoroughbreds around 1998, pursuing other interests not as demanding in order to have enough quality time to raise my family. All our ex racehorses were retired with the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.
Also, worked on Thoroughbred Breeding Farm Berkshire Stud during this time. 
  Now owner of Dappled Horse Grooming & Massage, a freelance equine massage & horse grooming service.
  I have extensive experience with hard to handle horses. 
Strong Stallions, Flighty Fillies & Nervous Nellie’s not a problem. I love them all! I specialize in bodywork, legs & feet along with rubbing on(grooming) the horses. Experienced with riding horses, racehorses and driving horses.
I am certified in Equine Sports Massage through Equine Kneads of Oxford, NJ.
I have volunteered with "New Vocations" in Hummelstown, Pa.
