Equine Sports Massage Therapy
I have a friend who does this for a living, and I am just wondering..
This is what her website says:
"Increasingly, equestrians have begun to incorporate Equine Sports Massage Therapy, a non-invasive therapy, into the total health care regimen of their horses. Treat your horse like the athlete he is. Enhance his emotional and physical being through proper body muscle manipulation. Our Therapy relieves muscle tension and stress, enabling your horse to improve his performance and balance.
Common Muscular Problems:

So how many of you would use it/have used it? What do you think about it?
The well-known saying “chestnut mare, beware!” is not completely without foundation. Some go further and add “chestnut Thoroughbred mare, beware!”
