Equine Sports Massage is not a luxury pampering treatment for your horse, but an essential part of the maintenance & treatment of all horses and ponies. Therapeutic Massage can be used to treat a wide range of muscular problems and vets will often refer horses for massage treatment.
Over 60% of a horses body mass is muscle (compared to humans at 35-40%), and many physical and behavioural problems can be traced back to muscle tension and dysfunction.
We ask our horses to perform a wide range of ‘unnatural’ movements and also wear a whole host of ‘accessories’ and this can cause pain and muscle tension. A damaged or tense muscle cannot perform properly so you will never get the best out of your horse or pony if you do not maintain, treat and generally take good care of its muscles.
