Yves Daughter, LLC Whether your horse is a long time companion for pleasure riding, or is a champion athlete competing at a Grand Prix level or fits somewhere in between. At one time or another, every horse owner has had concerns for their horse's well-being and performance.
Perhaps your equine partner has had some recent performance changes when you ask him to go up a steep incline on a course, or to take that cutting turn, or simply to lift his leg so you can look at his hoof. Maybe at first you don't think much of it, he's just having an "off" day. But then he starts nipping or kicking when you touch or are just near a certain part of his body. Often times these behavior changes can be due to pain from connective tissue that has tightened and simply won't allow movement without pain. After awhile they will simply stop doing that particular movement in order to avoid pain, and can act out negatively in an effort to protect the problem area.
You and your horse have been regularly progressing in training and then one day you notice you have reached a plateau. Is her stride shorter than it used to be? How's that extension or collection? It's not always obvious when there is a connective tissue problem if there has not been an injury.
Maybe your prize bull has lost some of his power coming out of the chute? This type of bodywork is successful for all types of animals. I'm open to working with just about anything. I love them all!
If you have experienced any of the above, and have tried other healing modalities without success then it's time to give Structural Integration bodywork a try. CALL HER TODAY! She worked wonders on Launching Pad :)
