The Benefits of Massage.
Tension is often one of the most common reasons for poor performance in horses. By increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility, the negative effects of tension can be reduced.
Massage is well known for its ‘feel good’ factor and has been shown to aid relaxation and assist with the maintenance of healthy muscle and muscle function. A relaxed horse, with relaxed muscles, will move with fluidity and suppleness.
Massage is great to help horses:
•Horses on box rest to maintain good circulation.
•After exercise to help support recovery.
•Before exercise as part of warm up.
•At a show after travelling to relax.
•On your horse or pony’s day off as general maintenance.
•Anytime as a reward.
