    Talking Massage Therapy my golden ticket

    Ok so a few of you know that about a month a go rebel my barrel horse came up severally lame. Had no idea how what when or where but we took him to the vet and they said hed pulled basically his groin muscle so he was having a hard time moving his right hip at all but they gave him banamine anyway. For three days he was given that and said that if it wasnt any better then I should take him back which I wasnt looking forward too. Well he seemed alittle better in that three days he was at least walking aroound now good improvment so I put him back out in pasture ... well the last three weeks he hasnt been ride able at all!! Im so bummed so I gave in and called the chiropractor out cause the only other thing I could think of was that his hip may have popped out of place, she came out to day and massaged him up and down and around the good news was this hip wasnt out but his muscles are SSOOO tight it isnt funny she massaged him for about an hour and wow did he love it I can't belive how better he was moving heck she couldnt believe how well he was moving im soooo happy I though he could be messed up for good but I got go out this week as much as possible and massage him and she's coming back next week its totally worth it to I can't belive how sore he is .. any ways just had share my happieness

    I tried MT and my horse hated it! I think he didnt want the lady touching him. But my other horse loved it.

    I looked into learning the technique but just haven't had the time. I think the concept is wonderful but, like anything else, you need a knowledgeable therapist.

    I just finished my course for Equine Massage Therapy. It was a wonderful course and it's amazing how much you learn. I was amazed at the difference in the horses that I've worked on. It does amazing things! My horses are all spoiled and get treatments as often as I have time.
