Personally, I view chiropractic care as every bit as essential as regular farrier work and veterinary treatment.
Exactly and I agree 100%.
My TB gelding sees his Equine Chiro on a regular basis as well, and many Competative Mounts get adjusted by an Equine Chiro on a regular basis as well.
Being adjusted by a Chiro is just as important for horses, as it is for ourselves. Their hips go out, their shoulders, jaw, poll, spinal column, etc, etc go out just as easily as ours can. How can you expect your horse to perform accordingly, if they have something out? Hips, shoulders, spinal column..etc, etc.
Do a search on the internet and you'll find plenty of valuable information on how important equine chiropractics are.
