Did You Know the Anatomical Structure of an Equine Is Made up of Over 60% Muscle?

Since the horse is over 60% muscle, it is essential to properly develop and treat both the superficial and deep muscles and connective tissues in order for your horse to gain flexibility, improve range of motion and remain relatively sound.

The Importance of Range of Motion

When horses have pain they can't achieve peak performance. Some horses don't exhibit signs of pain and suffer in silence, while others are highly-sensitive and express their discomfort-most often through behavior.

When a horse's body loses the ability to move freely, easily or completely, there will be a problem. Injuries often occur when a muscle is tightened and strained in a repetitive motion-which can result in the overdevelopment of muscles, due to improper use–which can cause pain. The result is lack of flexiblity, stiff movement


How I Can Help Your Horse

As a skilled bodyworker holding multiple certifications, I can identify, target and treat muscle groups, fascia, tendons or joints causing discomfort or decreased range of motion within the horse. Having a deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics helps to understand and address pain points within the horse for different modalities of treatment––whether that’s massage, kinesio tape, laser, therapeutic stretching, (de)stabilizing or other mobility exercises and techniques. Working with your veterinarian is always a top priority since only a vet can issue a proper diagnosis. My experience with racehorses and performance horses has given me a unique skillset to identify problem areas in the equine athlete and apply the proper technique(s) or modalities to help achieve peak performance.
