Massage is very beneficial for any horse, regardless of age, whether they’re a competitive sport horse, a recreational partner, or a pasture puff.
Equine massage enhances the performance and quality of life of horses by reducing stiffness, increasing flexibility, improving their attitude, and assisting with shortening the recovery time after an injury.
Massage helps more than just the muscle. It can assist horses in relaxation, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, reducing stress on the nervous system, and improving joint motion and flexibility.
If your horse is displaying any of the following symptoms, massage may be able to help:
Not picking up/not holding leads
Lack of flexion/lack of bend
Unevenness in gait
