Devina Lester has been regularly treating this mare Jareta Ochenta owned and breed by Jo Jarrett (Jareta stud) who I have in training at the moment, her wonderful healing hands have made such a difference to how this mares body and mind are now feeling and she is progressing very well as a result, I would highly recommend Devina to any one! Thank you so much Devina :-)
Devina Lester has volunteered at the Sanctuary for some months now and we have been amazed at how our animals respond to her.
Our horses because of what has happened to them in the past are very damaged either physically, mentally or emotionally and sometimes all three of those yet they readily connect with Devina. It was so heartwarming recently to watch Grace, our blind and traumatised mare who has been terrified of touch allow Devina to work on all parts of her body.
Also we had a little shetland pony who hated people around her but whilst Devina was working on one of the other ponies the little shetland came long and put her nose on Devina and asked to be helped.
What Devina offers is special and we would happily recommend her to you. She is an amazing lady doing some amazing work Sue Burton Sanctuary Founder & Manager REMUS MEMORIAL HORSE SANCTUARY
Titch Devina Lester and her healing hands came into Titch's life over two years ago. As a TBX, Titch is a sensitive soul and as a result of changes in his life had become a very anxious chap. Devina was introduced to us through a mutual friend and over the course of the past few years Devina has helped to create a happier, grounded chap who simply loves his Shiatsu treatments. We now keep Titch 'topped' up with treatments every 5 - 6 weeks as this ensures he stays in a good place. It is fair to say that without Devina we could quite possibly be in a much different place than we are today - Thank you :-)
I have known Devina Lester for many years and have always admired her dedication to the welfare of the horse.
As a Shiatsu practitioner she has fine-tuned this attention to the holistic well-being of the horse, becoming a very effective therapist. Her skills, knowledge and understanding of the horse is second to none. She has proved to be highly effective, having worked on my mature horses making them more comfortable physically and emotionally.
I would not hesitate to recommend her for any problems, physical or mental, your horse may be experiencing. Sarah Lewis MSTAT
My 26 year old Welsh Section D gelding has always been anxious about being turned out in a field ( bordering on agoraphobic at times). This anxiety is particularly bad in winter when the slightest thing can cause him to charge about the field and end up dripping in sweat. Over the last few years with regular treatments from Devina he is considerably less anxious and better able to cope with being turned out through the winter which has made life less stressful for both him and me.
He loves his treatments and always greets Devina with a whinny! I would have no hesitation in recommending her for your anxious horse. Fiona Hughes
Sarah Thornton - I moved my horse to a different yard 8 months ago. She is a young mare, who was born on, and spent her whole life at the previous yard up until the move. She did not handle it well and this was her behavior all day, everyday, until Devina was recommended to me by Robert Pring. After just 1 session I noticed a massive difference in her, and during the second session she almost laid down. I Have posted a video of her behavior below. I have also posted a photo below of her literally 5 minutes after Devina left. I cannot rate her highly enough!!
