This two-part online course will look at general and relevant fascial information. It will include an  overview of the anatomy of the Equine Myofascial Kinetic Lines, their function, movements and ”the symptoms of the lines”. Some testing will be presented.

In this course, kinetic myofascial lines in the horse (Elbrønd et Schultz, 2015) will be presented and explained in theory. The lines are inspired by the human lines dissected by Tomas Myers. Several of the lines span from top to toe and all the lines balance the body in standing and in motion. The myofascial kinetic lines are a brilliant tool by which to understand the mechanisms of compensation, motion, posture and treatment of the locomotive system in a multitude of animals including the horse.

"The fascial system envelops the entire body in a 3D network, which extends from the skin to deep into the body and into every single cell and cell nucleus; it completely  surrounds and links the entire skeleton and soft tissue structures. The functions of the fascia are numerous and range from the purely mechanical to a close collaboration and communication with the nervous system." Guimberteau and Armstrong

CPD course for professional equine therapists with Dr Vibeke Elbrond

Vibeka has lectured at several conferences, courses and workshops on this topic. In 2007 she was certified by IVCA and in 2017 by IVAS.


She has also studied normalization techniques in animals using manual indirect and osteopathic based techniques.


Besides lecturing at the University Vibeka runs a small practice where she treats the locomotion system of dogs and horses using manual therapies such as chiropractic and fascia release as well as laser and acupuncture treatments.
