We can train horses to run faster, jump higher and perform the balletic movements of dressage for our entertainment and pleasure - but as we sit comfortably on our horses' back, how often do we stop to consider how comfortable our horse is?
In reality horses and humans are quite similarly structurally, and both commonly suffer from low back pain and problems involving the shoulder and neck areas. Sports massage is one way you can help your horse, and here Pennie shows you how it can be done. With the aid of photographs, Pennie demonstrates the special techniques which horses so enjoy. She explains how sports massage can be used to identify a potential or developing problem before it becomes chronic and how it is possibly the most effective way to identify over use syndrome and in turn remedy it. There is detailed advice on how to massage every major muscle group in the horse's body, a section answering frequently asked questions and a quick reference list of specific problems and the areas to work to help resolve them.
