Treating Injuries to Motion

Equine Massage is a natural, non-invasive treatment that will increase performance, maintain the freedom of motion and prevent injuries.Bob Keller ~ Certified Equine Sports Massage

“My horse has been checked, radiographed, and rechecked and he’s still not going sound.” So if nothing is wrong why is he off?

The muscular system is 60% of a horses total body weight and responsible for movement. The most overlooked factor in diminished performance is simple muscle tightness. A bit of knotted muscle tissue no larger than the end of your finger that’s not able to perform it’s function can destroy the synchronization of motion needed for absolute performance.

A muscle responds to overuse, overstretch or over load by first tightening followed by spasm.  Muscle spasms interrupt the free flow of motion and energy in your horse and left unattended, lead to injury.

Indicators:

  • Harder to one side than the other
  • Off on a circle – OK on a straight line
  • Shortened Stride
  • Jumping flat
  • Off at the extended trot
  • Switching or refusing proper lead
  • Sore back
  • Restricted bending
  • Scuffing or off on behind

Equine massage will:

  • Increase range of motion
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Increase Flexibility
  • Reward your horse for a job well done
  • Relieve stiff and sore muscles
  • Re-establish balance
  • Make your horse more supple

You and your horse will notice the difference!
