About Equine Physiotherapy
Horses are athletes that compete in a variety of disciplines. These activities place strains and stresses on their muscles and joints. It is essential to maintain the optimal strength and mobility to help them perform at their best. Factors that can contribute to the equine athlete are:
- Confirmation flaws
- Poor and incorrect schooling
- Poor conditioning
- Muscle Imbalances
- Ill fitting equipment
There are lots of different breeds of horses and many combinations of breeds so it is also critical to assess each horse individually and rehabilitate the animal to its maximal performance. Petra offers equine physiotherapy to keep your horse in top shape.
