INCREASED RANGE OF MOTION
Improving your horses range of motion and efficiency in his stride will create less wear and tear on the joints ligaments and tendons and lead to a longer performance life.
"Bad behaviors" and refusals are often a sign of muscle soreness or discomfort. With their limited ability to tell us somethings wrong, changes in behavior are often the first sign.
SPEED UP RECOVERY TIME
Bodywork helps the healing process along by encouraging scar tissue to be laid down in a more functional pattern, as well as reducing the amount of scar tissue which can help restore elasticity and functional range of motion.
CORRECT MOVEMENT PATTERNS
Often muscles are over compensating for their weaker counterparts creating dysfunctional movement patterns, leaving the overcompensating muscles under tremendous strain. These imbalances can be corrected to restore proper balance and enhance your horses movement and tone.
Increasing blood flow and oxygen to the muscles helps create healthy muscle tissue, lessens recovery time,
promotes overall health and protects joints.
