The competitive horse is an equine athlete, and needs to be cared for as such. Daily work, conditioning rides, strength building, surface impact, all of this wear and tear on the body can have both positive and negative effects on the horse. I practice Equine Sports Massage Therapy based on techniques used on human athletes to help the muscles heal when overworked, release the tension out of a tight muscle group, and promote overall health of any horse. Keeping your horse sound and sane for life can be challenging in our demanding competitive disciplines. Consider using massage as part of a health regimen. Serving Central Ohio.
