Marguerite Old

Marguerite’s love of horses has remained strong throughout her life. At an early age she participated in both English and Western disciplines and as a teen she was a Standardbred racehorse groom. In her adult years a busy city life and career did not allow as much time for horses as she would have liked. When she learned about the D’al  School of Equine Massage Therapy she decided to combine her passion for horses with an occupation. She hasn’t looked back.

Marguerite successfully completed the 2 year D’al program and went on to obtain her designation as a Registered Equine Massage Therapist  with the International Federation of Registered  Equine Massage Therapists. Always an avid learner, she is presently working towards a Diploma in Equine Studies with the University of Guelph.
