Is your horse struggling with performance issues and you are not sure why?
As riders, we often can feel when something is not quite right with our horses, and it can often be shown by behavioural changes too.
Does your horse do any of the following?
Difficulty striking off in canter or maintaining certain canter lead
Head shaking during ridden work
Disuniting in canter
Behavior changes - rearing, bucking, napping
Difference in movement and gait, lameness, brushing of hind legs?
Reluctance to jump, or knocking down poles, or tripping when conducting pole work?
Difference in muscle development, loss of muscle or over development?
Stiffness on one side or hanging on one particular rein when being ridden?
Does your horse avoid using its back - and work in a hollow outline?
Does your horse have a 'cold back' when you get on?
Physio may be able to help with these problems, and identify where the pain is coming from.
