When our horse feels good physically, they can enjoy the ride too.
The most special part of riding is the connection we create with our horses, and one facet of that connection is helping them feel the best they can.
Riding, even at a basic level, asks a lot from the horse. They weren’t designed to carry weight on their backs for long periods, and long rides at the slower gaits can actually be more physically taxing than a vigorous workout.
There are many things we can do to help our horses feel better, but today I want to share something you can do in 5 minutes, at the end of your ride.
In this week’s video, meet Andrea, Equine Massage Therapist, to learn 3 simple stretches for your horse.
