    Equine Massage Therapists

    Anybody use one?

    Had a lady out to day for the first time to work on my filly, because of the accident, and I am in amazment at the change in her mood, not to mention her gait and relaxation. I noticed she carried her head and neck lower, and she just not nearly as crabby as usual :roll: lol. She was calmer and just basically a lot nicer to be around.

    So whats your thoughts?

    I wasn't sure if I saw and felt results the first time or was just hoping for them, so the second time, I had the massage therapist show me where the knots were, she then worked on the horse and had me touch the areas again to show me they were gone. When I see my horse licking his lips and yawning in pleasure during the massage, I know I'm doing something good for him. I also now know how to work out the knots on my own.

    I use a massage therapist on my guy. He doesn't necessarily like having actual body work done, but he looooooves having his head/ upper neck region manipulated. I didn't notice any real changes in the way he acted on the ground or in the saddle, but his reactions while he's being worked on tell me he enjoys it.

    I learned how to do some basic massage (like a sports massage) a little while ago and tried it on my older horse. He really enjoyed having his neck done and he seemed to be happy when I was done. I wasn't able to notice any difference while riding though because he's retired to being a trail horse and he always acts the same on the trails. Of course, I'm not a trained therapist either.

    I posted about this before. I was wondering because im probably going to get my certification in a little while. I just need the extra money for it. I didnt know what peoples opinions on them was.
