Equine Massage Therapy

Equine Sports Massage Therapy for Horses of All Disciplines From Performance Horses to Trail Horses.

Why should you choose equine massage therapy for your horse(s)?              Because your horse deserves the best care.

Have you noticed that your horse is experiencing behavioral issues, decreased performance due to over-worked, tight muscles or muscle spasms? Do you have an arthritic horse or older horse?  Is your horse recovering from a muscle related injury? Have you noticed that your horses stride seems shorter or off? Is your horse tired and has a bad disposition and just doesn't want to work?
Massage therapy can help alleviate muscle fatigue and spasms thus reducing your horse's risk of pulling or tearing muscles. Massage therapy can also help improve circulation and reduce inflammation in joints and muscles while allowing them to move more freely. Massage therapy can be used under the direction of a veterinarian to assist with healing of soft tissue injuries. Equine Sports Massage can be used as a Preventative maintenance plan for your horse (every 3 - 6 weeks) or used specifically following ailments and injuries.
