In this video, I want to show you several key areas of the horse’s body where tension can build up.
This tension can make it difficult for our horses to do what we ask, as it creates pain and restriction in their body.
Some amount of tension is a normal part of life, but it can be made worse through poor saddle fit, unbalanced riding, injuries, falls, etc.
A few weeks ago, I shared a video on how our bodies are so connected, and understanding how, as riders, tension in one part can affect the rest of our body.
Today, we will be looking at several of these key body parts on the horse, with the assistance of our school horse, Catfish, and a collection of horse bones.
We are just finishing the new program, Gentle Bodywork, with Jim Masterson, so you can learn techniques to help your horse move better and feel better.
A Free Preview of the program will also be available, sign up here and we will let you know when it’s ready!
