Talisman Equine Educational Exchange
The Only Equine Massage School in Texas!
Our Mission
With the rapidly changing face of veterinary
medicine, alongside the human medical field,
Talisman Equine is committed to providing
accurate, up-to-date, effective treatment options
and education to our students.  We whole-
heartedly adhere in the “WHOLE-istic” approach
to health care.  We feel truly blessed to have the
opportunity to share ideas and insights with other
animal lovers everywhere.
OUR CAMPUS

The Equine Educational Exchange is a sister
to TALISMAN EQUINE VETERINARY
SERVICES, LLC, and is situated on 30
beautiful acres in the heart of Texas.  The
classroom is located inside the Veterinary
clinic and our students are often afforded
the opportunity to view cases worked up
“live” by veterinarians or other clinicians.
RV hookups and stalls for student horses are
available, as well. These spaces are limited so
call to reserve yours!
The campus boasts pristine ponds, lush
pastures and “Grand-Daddy” oak trees, as
well as a teaching facility to rival all others.
OUR CURRICULUM

The courses are taught in intensive,
information packed sessions.  The days are
long, but the educational opportunities match.  
Depending upon the course selected, certain
pre-requisites may apply.  Our program is the
only one known of it’s kind to be not only
endorsed, but run by, a licensed Veterinarian,
and has sought approval of Veterinary
Boards in several states.   
Once the class is dismissed, relax on the
tranquil bank of one of several ponds located
on the farm, doze on a hammock under a
gorgeous old oak tree, enjoy riding thru the
pastures or practice your preferred
discipline in our well manicured arena.
