Equine Therapy is a natural and holistic approach to wellness for your equine partner.
Different modalities are used to achieve maximum results.
Therapies used include:
Saddle Fit Assessment
A typical session will include a combination of techniques depending on what is required
by the horse. The initial therapy session includes a
full assessment of the range of
motion and overall condition. This also provides a guideline for improvement.
By using an approach called muscle testing each horse can be assessed on an individual basis to determine nutritional needs.
So your horse has a sore back!?!? During a session it may be determined that saddle fit could be a big issue and detrimental to your horse's performance. Even if you have a custom saddle or a saddle recently fitted it does not mean that it still fits great because the horse's back changes with fitness level and exercise. In fact your saddle should be rechecked frequently, especially if your horse is changing.
Just as a saddle fit can severely hinder your horses performance so can imbalances in the rider. Not to mention it will affect the horses performance.
Jennifer is available for groups, such as Pony Club, 4H, and riding schools, to speak
about individual topics. Some examples of
topics that can be presented are Saddle Fit,
Rider Imbalance, Equine Muscles - an overview, and Equine Nutrition.
