Testimonials from our Current and Past Students
Equine Holistic Nutrition Course:
Loved the class! Extremely informative, and straight forward. Offers tons of info on various diseases, sicknesses, and disorders and how to feed to accommodate each horse. The herbal aspect is very detailed and fun to learn. I’ve got at least 300 pages of notes from this course and feel so empowered with this new knowledge. It’s crazy what medicines we are told to give our horses can do to their systems and how it can actually do more damage than good! Wow! Super recommend:))
First off I would like to say how thoroughly I enjoyed this course. I am an equine science senior at Colorado State University and have taken two equine nutrition courses but enjoyed this one extremely! This course opened up my eyes to a wide variety of new things and better alternatives for horses and for that I am very grateful. I definitely plan to take more courses here in the very near future!
Thank you so very much for everything!”
You guys have set these courses up so wonderfully. I cant say enough positive things about it. It is such a blessing to someone like me.
I wasn't able to finish college because I couldn't afford it, and didn't want huge loans hanging over my head for years. These courses are affordable so you're not in a huge pile of debt. Love the payment plan option, also very appreciated! I love the no time limit, because I have a very demanding job, recently had to have surgery, and I've never been good at producing quality essays/exams/case studies if I'm rushed or timed. I love that the information is always accessible and UPDATED! Absolutely awesome! The research and knowledge provided is extensive and very informational. Also, love that we are able to download the slideshows and print them off! That has been helpful for a "quick reference grab" instead of logging onto the computer. The Facebook groups, and resource attachments are another fabulous feature for people to connect, compare and have access to quality books and tools. Overall, I am so impressed with the quality of information and how everything is laid out. You guys have done a wonderful job! Thank you ALL, for all you do providing people like me with such a wonderful opportunity to pursue what we are passionate about!!

"It’s quite the adrenaline rush heading down the trail at 20mph! It’s a lot of leg work for dryland because I squat down as far as I can to keep the wind drag down. Sled is a lot of upper body strength having to manipulate the balance of the sled.
As a professional in the field of Bodywork regardless of whether it’s for the human side of the business or the equine I have pursued continuing my education, so I may provide the best service possible. Any modality I use whether it is Massage, Cranio-Sacral, Acupressure or Kinesiology Tapping I have experienced each modality as a client. Approximately 3 years ago I came down with a pretty intense case of Plantar Fasciitis and my primary care physician at the time said I could try injections or Kensio-Tape. Needless to say, I’m always willing to experience non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive techniques prior to availing myself to injections etc. After a week to 10 days the results were amazing, and the Plantar Fasciitis was resolved and has not returned.
Working with national and international equine competitors from the hunter/ jumper circuit I always try to expand my skills by taking continuing education. The outcome of having effective tools helps my clients achieve their training and completive goals. Needless to say when researching who not only would provide the highest level of information in the field of Kinesiology Tapping but who was also a practitioner in their field I found Dr. Barbara. I thoroughly enjoyed the training I received from Dr. Barbara and without hesitation I have included Kensio- Tapping into my practice with amazing and consistent results! I highly recommend taking courses with Dr. Barbara."

I just have to brag for a second about how amazing craniosacral therapy has been for my horses. I'm not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical when I signed up for the course.
I've had my Saddlebred gelding, Taj, for over a year now. He was rescued from a horrible situation. I went through the 10 step protocol and addressed some other problem areas, specifically in his poll and TMJ. Today was our first ride ever without a buck, and not once did I catch him on an incorrect lead. It was also the first time I've ever experienced true focus and willingness from this horse. The course has already paid for itself. Thank you Angelique Barbara DC!!”

"My expectations were greatly exceeded with the courses I took at Holistic Animal Studies! They were so thorough and I took away so much valuable information. I have gained a skill and these courses helped me feel confident in starting my career as a Canine Massage Practitioner. I will definitely be taking more courses from Angel's Animals in the future."
Thank you for putting together these great courses. I enjoyed doing them. The platform is very user friendly, and the support is great! Always received quick responses on my emails!
I look forward to start practicing and helping more dogs out there!
~Jess De Musso
Dr. Angelique Barbara is an excellent instructor who always answers emails promptly and thoroughly. I was very impressed with her level of knowledge, and how well she organized the Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy Course. She cares a lot about her students and our canine companions! I would highly recommend any of her courses"
~Helen Baker, Ontario, Canada
The Craniosacral Therapy was terrific and it helped me connect some dots with other modalities that I’m currently using in my business. Dr. Barbara’s course was well organized and Candace Barnhart-Johnson (TA) was very helpful when I was having trouble uploading the videos for the case studies and in her follow-up emails. I’m happy I took the course and I would recommend it to anyone interested in Craniosacral Therapy.
~Michelle Lebling Camp
I absolutely loved the course, not only for the work at your own pace, but how hands on and welcoming everyone is! Again thank you so much for everything
Completing the CST course was one of the best investments I have made in my profession. It gives one so much more to add to help horses. It also gave me more insight as to work with “difficult” (actually misunderstood horses). Sometimes what we have to offer is just not enough."
~JJ Terblanche, South Africa
I studied at Guelph University for Equine Sciences (online) and I notice many of my school mates from all over the world have taken advantage of this awesome equine kinesiology taping learning! With summer coming and with it bringing my hired hands, I am registering my team one by one to take this course. I was also very impressed with how much my Vet supports this equine kinesiology taping and encourages me to take as many courses as I can, so that is what we here at PrairieWind Productions intend to do. Of note, I used the equine kinesiology taping on a bad face scar, and after 7 days it is all but completely healed. I am a big believer and supporter of this course! This course is designed to make you succeed. I found it to be comprehensive, understandable, fun and most importantly, Dr. Barbara is right there to support you and responds to questions very quickly! I highly recommend this course!"
~Margot Anderson, Okotoks, Alberta
This course was really fun! I learned a lot and the format was really easy to work with. Will definitely recommend!
My TA Tessa was just amazing. Her detailed review of my case studies was super helpful and encouraging!
Thank you so much, I was so intrigued reading about the craniosacral therapy for horses and the benefits I just couldn't wait to try it myself, the course was great in explaining what happens and how the therapy works.
I have loved every minute studying and learning a new skill to add to my services to help more horses what more could any Therapist want.
I have enjoyed being a student of Angel's holistic studies so much I've enrolled in the kinesiology taping for horses and cold laser therapy courses.
I thoroughly enjoyed the CMFT and Craniosacral course. The courses are very well done and full of useful information. The really neat thing is, I was reminded of attending human massage school back in the day. It brought back happy memories. It was also so nice to be able to work at my own speed.
The staff was very helpful and accommodating when I had questions or needed help. I’m so happy and grateful I found Angel’s Animals!
In 2016 I started an Equine Massage Therapy course with a different practitioner and I was really frustrated with the way the course was set-up. None of my questions got hardly ever answered and the material provided was very confusing. In 2017 I came across Dr. Barbara's webpage and I got in touch with her to find out more about her courses. Signing up with her was probably the best thing I have done. The courses provide so much information and I never had to wait longer than 24 hrs to receive an answer to my questions. I can only highly recommend Dr. Barbara's courses. Meanwhile, I also finished my Equine Kinesiology Taping course and planning on taking the Equine Craniosacral course in the near future."
~Nicole Beyer-Williams, Collins, GA
The Equine Craniosacral course is an excellent course which is very detailed and set out so well making it easy to follow. This is a great therapy which achieves great results and I'm so happy to be able to now add this to my existing body work practice.
Tracy Smith Western Australia
Equine Craniosacral is a great treatment and course was very detailed making it easy to understand and do the work involved and treat horses. Excited for the next course and to have these great additions to my Equine Massage Therapies!
Shanna Bodine Honesdale, Pa
I did the course to support dogs in my holistic practice even further with the kinesiotape and I really use it every day! I use it for the muscles and tendons, joints and back, but also for the acupressure points! It is a very complete course and got very good guidance from Angelique! Do not worry but just do it !!
Sabina van Loon Gouda, Zuid Holland
After 2 years I am still so glad I took your kinesiology taping course! Switching fields from equine to small animal I was not sure if I would have the opportunity to use my acquired skills... however working for the clinic I'm at now I've had many! We have a rehab portion and our clients love that we "go the extra mile" by taping after, it is especially helpful for those that are very weak after all the exercises/ water treadmill and/or experience weakness in the limbs. We have also used it for surgeries on suture lines to promote healing and lessen tension, and it's very helpful with our back patients as well. The most interesting and exciting thing is that it has worked out great for reptiles and exotics sometimes being the only thing that will stay on their body. I love how many uses I have found for it and I am finding more everyday! The best way to describe it is, it has become the perfect icing on a already good cake. It really shows clients that you are willing to do everything possible for their pet. It has been a really great addition to our practice! And Dr. Angelique Barbara DC Is the absolute best teacher!!
Kira Parker, Florida USA
The equine massage therapy course is great! I'm so happy with how available the teacher is and how easy it was to understand! Lots of studying but definitely worth it!! Can't wait to take the kinseology taping class next!!!
Ashley Gunter North east, Pa
The Animal Neuro-Myofascial Therapy course was my favourite course out of 6 amazing certification courses thus far. It’s fascinating. I was so enthusiastic about this course that I flew from Canada to Florida to take a four hour workshop from Dr. Barbara . Upon completing the course, my business has also more than doubled, as I was able to use vertebrae alignment techniques that brought instant results. After working with a swayback horse, after 5 weeks the results were incredible, and I don’t think I would have believed it if I hadn’t done the ANMR myself. I’m so confident in my practice due to the learning from Holistic Animal Studies. I am supported by Dr. Barbara and other students on the FB pages on an ongoing basis so I never feel alone or confused, they’ve got my back. I have also been able to help other students, which for me, is my endgame. I encourage everyone to do something that’s just for them by taking just one course from Holistic Animal Studies.

Equine Craniosacral Course......Brilliant course, easy to manage layout.... and it works!
Jeanette Bingley, NSW Australia
Very Educational! I was amazed to see the amount of information available in the Equine Kinesiology Taping Online Course. The anatomy section is thorough. The meridian taping is a thoughtful bonus. I have been doing equine bodywork for a long time and even I had a "light bulb" moment. I highly recommend the courses!
Dee Wesley Meansville, GA
I would definitely recommend taking this course (equine kinesiology tape) to anyone and everyone with horse experience! I absolutely loved the whole thing and learned so much! My minis and I definitely thank Dr. Barbara for teaching me so much!
AMAZING! Dr. Barbara is seriously the best instructor and I have used my training/certification more than I could have ever imagined. She is so helpful, always there for you and is a wealth of knowledge. I feel truly blessed to have met her and am continuing my education with her still today. Highly Recommend!
Samantha Youngblood Greenfield, Indiana
Both courses (the equine kinesiology taping online course and workshop) were easy to follow and very informative! Support has been wonderful!
Both these courses (canine kinesiology taping and ANMR) were fantastic and after using other techniques in my clinic for a number of years, ANMR has now become the primary method given how quick it is and the fantastic results it delivers.
The courses are presented in a clear, easy to follow manner and the after support is outstanding.
Sacha Packer Sydney, Australia
I was looking for something to add to both my Human & Canine Massage Practices. Dr. Angel has created a course that is both easy to follow and she is so knowledgeable. I currently use this technique both on my massage clients as well as my dogs.
Thank you again, Dr. Angel
Bernadette Lafferty Chino Valley, Arizona
Loved it! I really enjoyed this class, I thought it was very comprehensive. I researched other classes and this one was perfect for me. I liked that you could work at your own pace and Dr. Barbara was very prompt in answering any questions. I would totally recommend this class!
Elizabeth Cumbess, Equine Massage Student
What an exceptional course! Dr. Angel:) has truly been an incredible teacher and leader in this field. The course are well thought out, studied and exceptionally planned. I have had incredible support from Dr. Angel and when i need her she responds to all my questions quickly and professionally. I have been so grateful for the first class knowledge and outstanding course material that Angels Animals has and will still continue to provide for me, my practice and my clientele.
I am truly a client and student for life.
Thank you Dr. Angel, Truly you are and outstanding example
Tamara Watt, EMFT Practitioner
Loved the course! Very professional, tons of information and great explanations and visuals. Dr. Barbara was always quick to respond in case there was a question. Can highly recommend it!
Anja Wuerminghausen, EMFT Practitioner
I am only 30% through this course and as Human Sports massage practitioner from the UK I am extremely impressed, the information is clear and up to date, the videos are wonderful and I love the fact I can go back and forth.
I am enjoying learning again.
Natalie Monrowe, EMFT Student
I'm impressed with the details of this course. Wasn't sure of on line learning, but this is great.
Wendy Wilson, EMFT Student
I completed the Animal Reiki Certification course and received my Master Reiki Certification. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it. This course provided all the information needed to feel confident as a Reiki professional, without having 30 minutes of miscellaneous details or stories before getting to the facts. The information was presented concisely and was very understandable. Dr. Barbara was readily accessible to answer any questions.
Not only did I learn Reiki, but I also learned a lot about myself and the healing I personally needed to find peace in my life.
Thank you, Dr. Barbara for this amazing course!
Sue Gilbert, Reiki Master
This course was easy to follow. There is plenty of explanation on hand positioning and what to look for to know if a release has taken place. I enjoy Dr. Barbara's relaxed and informative tone. I'm glad I took her course and that I can now add craniosacral to my list of modalities.
Alexandra Bennett, Canine Craniosacral Therapist
I appreciated the laymans terms and definitions throughout this section. When I was unsure of a particular term, I took the time to stop and research a little deeper before moving on with my reading/viewing. Of interest were the history, the term Sutures, Fascial System and Dura Mater. The PPT closure was nice as it summarized the benefits of Equine CranioSacral Therapy. Until I went through this learning opportunity, I was completely unaware of what cranial sutures actually were and that they are able to be manipulated.
Bonnie Morrow, Equine Craniosacral Therpist
So Far I am very happy with this course . I have been to a demo on horses before so already know a lot of this first stuff but Doc makes it super easy to understand!
