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!

  1. I loved this video. As a physiotherapist in NZ, I often do bodywork on my mare. It has been amazing to see these equine joints 3D. Thank you Caley.

  2. I am so excited to hear that you are going to be releasing the work with Jim Masterson! I have his videos and workbooks and I just love them! It’s wonderful that I can continue to learn even more with your partnered workshop with Jim.
    “Catfish” was adorable on your video too!

  3. YAY ON THE MASTERSON WORKSHOP COMING UP! Love his work and have all his books/videos. There’s always more to learn.

  4. Hi. I love your videos.
    I was a horse owner and loved to ride a few years ago but I had a very bad car accident, I had a bleed in my brain that took years to overcome as the dr didn’t find it till years later in a different office
    I am worried about riding and having another bleed after a fall is there something I can do with a horse that’s not riding but that I can enjoy with a horse. ?
