Bit OT here but, so my equine massage therapist was out last Sunday to work on my mare. She said shes a bit sore on her left hip (possibly from the saddle she said). Nothing serious, just mild soreness. She gave me some excersizes to do with my mare to loosen up that muscle.
So I told my trainer today that she is sore in the left hip and she asked how I could tell. I said well, my massage therapist was out Sunday and noticed it. My trainer or BO do NOT believe in equine massage therapists because they lack the education of a vet and they can pretty much learn and study their content through night classes.
She said that she rode my mare yesterday and today and hasnt noticed anything. She said she wont believe the massage therapist. Hmmm, dont know what to say to that.
Was gonna see my mare tonight but since my trainer rode her yesterday and again today, I feel it might be better off not seeing her tonight, especially since yesterday she got ridden PLUS me working with her, with her feet. If she had back to back days of being ridden plus me working with her feet, that might be too much for 2 days. am I right?
She needs to take in what she learned in todays lesson from my trainer, so maybe I dont see her tonight so she can let that sink in and worry about my stuff on the weekend.
