Couldn't load pickup availability
Whether your horse is a trained competitor or a weekend trail mount, he can suffer from muscular stiffness, strain, and injury, just like a human athlete. All of these common complaints can be treated—and further physical deterioration avoided—with sports massage. In this superbly illustrated, step–by–step guide, human and equine massage therapist Pennie Hooper explains that, with a little practice and simple techniques—namely compression and cross–fiber friction—you can give your horse a basic sports massage. Not only will his physical self transform as he feels better and moves more freely; you will find his responsiveness and general attitude toward work will improve, as well.
