Stiffness in an older TWH
I took in a 24 yr old walking horse that is my horses great grand sire. He is fabulous and healthy, but gets stiff. I have rubbed vetrolin lineament in his muscles which seems to help, but I would like to know if anyone has stretching exercises I could do with him.
I am a dressage rider and know a lot of stretch work for trotting horses such as shoulder in and lots of lateral work, but
1- he does not know those exercises yet,
2- not sure if a gaited horse can perform them the same way.
