About the Author

Mr. Doran is a professional horseman with 40+ years of experience working with performance horses. Mr. Doran is a visionary and founding father of Equine Sports Massage Therapy and Training.

Mr. Doran's career in the thoroughbred racing industry began during the Decade of Champions (1970 - 1980). Mr. Doran was educated and inspired by trainers of great race horses such as: Secretariat, Seattle Slw, Affirmed, Alydar, Shuvee, Ruffian and Forego.

Mr. Doran served in the United State Marine Corps form 1972-1975. While stationed in Japan, Mr. Doran learned the fundamentals of the healing art of massage.

In 1979, Mr. Doran became a partner and general manage of Broadlands Farm, a major thoroughbred breeding, foaling and rehabilitation facility. At Broadlands, over a 10 year period, Mr. Doran cared for hundreds of thoroughbreds sent in for rehabiliation of muscular and assorted injuries. Mr. Doran's care program helped a majority of these horses recover and return to productive careers. Mr. Doran found that the hands-on massage techniques which he incorporated into his equine rehabilitation program had the greatest positive effect on the healing process for the horses.

Mr. Doran's vision was to develop specific sports massage techniques for equine athletes.

To increase his knowledge and skills in the healing arts, in 1989, Mr. Doran attended the Florida School of Massage in Gainesville, FL and became a licensed human massage therapist and certified human sports massage therapist. As a human sports massage therapist, Mr. Doran performed ground breaking work by establishing the University of Florida's first massage program for the swim and track teams.

Through independent research and his in-depth understanding of the horse, Mr. Doran correlated human and equine athletic injuries and developed a specialized protocol for the evaluation and treatment of equine muscular problems.

In 1993, Mr. Doran designed, developed and launched the world's first Equine Sports Massage Training Program. Since then many have followed in Mr. Doran's footsteps.

Mr. Doran's focus is on the horse. Through his educational programs and equine performance consulting practice, it is Mr. Doran's personal mandate to raise awareness and shift paradigms in the equine industry in order to empower horsemen with relevant information and skills that allow them to achieve maximum success, performance and personal fulfillment with their horses.
