Begin your equine renovation here!
Always carrying a soft place in her heart for the unloved and unloveable horses, founder of Nova Equine Renovations, Grace Keeton is taking over 20 years of horsemanship experience and combining it with effective healing systems to take your horse's well-being to a new level.
"As I began to grow my horse training business, I found myself getting distracted by the things I'd feel within the horses that I couldn't quite place--restrictions, imbalances and various braces. It was when I stopped trying to ignore those things or just 'push the horse through it', and instead learned how to identify and release them, that the game changed for me. More importantly, it changed for the horses, too."
Grace has found that the 'problems' horses seem to have are just as much of a frustration to them as they are to the human. It seems that once the energetic and emotional components that manifest physically are resolved, those 'problems' improve significantly and even disappear.
She is steadfast in giving misunderstood horses a voice.
The services we offer are unique and complementary to one another. We are truly interested in a whole-horse approach, and this means that we must go beyond simply educating the horse and tend not only to the horse’s body, but their mind and spirit as well! After all, horses can only perform as well as their emotional and physical limitations allow.
A foundational piece of Grace's program is The Body Code, which is an energy healing system designed to get to the root of various issues, both physical and emotional. This is a simple, non-invasive modality and while it is energy work, it is very systematic. It is typically our introductory service as it tends to serve as a key to the lock that horses can put on themselves emotionally. This is a helpful tool then getting started with horses who are too physically or emotionally guarded, too difficult to handle and horses who are physically distant. Not only can traumas be identified via Body Code, but they are released! Since it can be done remotely, The Body Code gives me a worldwide reach. It’s an excellent way to remove the energetic blocks to things like healing and building trust. The Body Code can get your horse started down their path to peace!
The other crucial component to Grace's program is craniosacral therapy, which offers a beautiful transition from Body Code into how your horse is functioning on a more physical level. The craniosacral system itself is what feeds, maintains and protects the entire nervous system. By using this system to find areas of restriction throughout the body, we are using the body’s own intelligence to help facilitate its harmonizing. It is a gentle therapy that is similar to massage, but going even deeper—though still with a light touch—to help the body rebalance itself.
Building upon her foundation of energy work and Craniosacral Therapy, Grace is trained also in functional indirect osteopathy.
It differs from the more manual manipulation of direct osteopathy,
remaining soft and listening to the rhythms of the vascular, neural and visceral systems of the body. This restoration of rhythm allows the true harmonizing of the whole horse in mind, body and spirit.
From releasing restriction in movement to the rebalancing of organs, this modality is quite profound. Best of all, it is with a very light touch that these techniques help the body help itself!
As her business began to shift and she continued to add more components to her program, Grace no longer wanted to consider herself a trainer. This sent her on a search for a new job title.
Equine Renovation Specialist stuck with her because of what her goals are with the horses: Not to make them something they're not, in fact, just the opposite. To help them become the truest version of themselves. To enhance them at their core.
Once she found this new title, the name Nova kept coming back to her like a boomerang.
In Greek, nova means new.
In astronomy, a nova is the result of a dim star being made very bright by the giving of energy from another star.
And, conveniently, nova happens to be nestled perfectly in the middle of the word renovation itself.
It's exactly what she strives for in her work:
Using her energy to help horses shine in a whole, new way.
We love helping owners help their horses!
