Prince has been getting a few sore and tight spots through his back lately, we believe this is due to him building back muscle following an injury early this year. I've been riding him with muscle building and rehabilitation in mind, varying our work whilst including key exercises to keep the muscles loose and flexible but I wanted to do a bit more for him.
The sore spots aren't causing lameness or severe discomfort, but he is showing occasional and mild signs under saddle and when grooming so I read up on how to find and massage tight muscles. I gave the techniques had a go today along with some techniques his physio had previously recommended I use between visits.
Of course this does not in any way imitate what a good physio can do! But it's a nice way to help his muscles whilst he is building them back up, helping alevitate any tightness. He really seemed to enjoy it and was moving nicer afterwards, so hopefully this will be a nice way to keep him comfortable in between his regular physio checks 😊❤️🐴 #instahorse #horse #physio #equinephysio #standardbred #standardbredsofinstagram #standardbreddressage #equine #equinesofinstagram #equestrian #equinesofinstagram #equestrianlife #horserider #horseriding
