Equine massage is used to improve performance, increase mobility and range of motion, and free up the horse’s poll, neck, shoulders, and back to improve jumping, bending, turning, and stopping.

Massage causes the muscles to fill with rich oxygenated blood flow and increases circulation; which removes wastes and toxic buildup from fatigued muscles. Alleviation of muscle tension and spasms can naturally increase the horse’s efficiency. Removing harmful toxins from muscles and joints increases the flexibility, muscle tone, range of motion and enhances competitive performance. By using a consistent massage regime, you can improve your horse’s performance, confidence and overall quality of life.

Not only does massage improve the horse’s performance and health, it can also be used to help the horse relax. If a horse is stressed out or jumpy, massage normally will help relax the stressed horse and it helps the confidence of a jumpy one.

Massaging a horse before competition can result in as much as 20% increase in efficiency.
