Things to remember
*Massaging provides physical, emotional and mental relaxation.
*Muscles work on a all or none basis.
*Everything has a price and the price your horse pays for stressing will be a loss of
suppleness and a reduced range of motion, due to enduring muscle tightening.
*Any Muscle, any portion of muscle which is not working for the horse is working
against the horse, actively.
My horse has been checked, scoped, X-rayed, and there is nothing wrong, so how
come hes still off?. When there is no apparent cause and he is off of no obvious
reason, it is not easily understood. We can over look some obvious sight, and pass
them off as the horse having an attitude problem-when they are trying to tell us
something is wrong.
