Your horse is an athlete!
When we ride our horses, we are asking a lot of them, no matter the discipline. In their natural habitat, horses graze for most of the day, and only move faster to change environment or to flee from predators. So they are not designed, by nature, to do what we ask them to, let alone carry the extra weight on their backs. We get them to run, jump and carry a saddle and our weight on top of them while doing it. Considering that, they should be treated like an athlete! Chances are, the greatest athlete you know, is probably your horse
Why your horse deserves a massage

♥It keeps muscles supple, allowing them to be elastic and flexible and with it, reduce the possibility of injuries and increase range of motion.
♥Horses experience stress and anxiety just like we do, and massage relaxes them just as it does us, mentally and physically.
♥Massage helps to reduce pain by the release of endorphins, which are also known to elevate the mood.
