My love of horses brought me to massage therapy, because of the need that I saw in all the horses and the difference that I saw AFTER they were massaged. Plus, being able to show all the horses I work on, that they are loved!
Why would your horse need a massage?
Horses these days are affected by so many different things, such as the saddle, performance, riders, being incorrectly ridden, lameness and injury, and most horse owners know that massage therapy should be apart of your horse health care program, to prevent injury, promote quicker healing during rehabilitation of an injury, and the overall health benefits are numerous!
Most people think that a horse’s bad behavior has to do with them being “bad”, but if you take a moment to listen to them and see what they have to “say”, you will find that sometimes, it is due to pain! I have seen horses improve from pinning their ears during saddling, having cinch or girth issues, and being very tight while ridden, and showing dramatic improvement after just one massage!
