Horses did not evolve specifically to carry a rider on their backs and even more strain is placed upon their skeletal structure by modern competition.
In addition to the general symptoms already listed, horses may show the following signs when in need of treatment:
Preventative treatment provides great benefits to horses. As natural athletes “fine tuning” helps them to perform at their optimum.
Massage and stretches help gain maximum performance by working to improve the flexibility of the horse.
Several treatments may be required and yearly or twice-yearly check-ups are advised to help achieve optimum performance and as a preventative measure.
