Horses like riders can become restricted in parts of their body and movement.

Signs your horse may need physiotherapy:

  • difficulty in performing specific movements or stiffness on one rein

  • difficulty engaging their hind quarters, falling in through the quarters or out through the shoulder

  • evading the bit, hollowing or rushing

  • an injury, fall, getting cast or escaping from the field

  • napping, bucking, rearing or bolting

  • having had a poorly fitting saddle or tack

  • sensitive when being brushed

  • knocking fences, jumping to one side or refusing

  • toe dragging and /or stumbling

  • recovery from surgery or veterinary treatment

Equine physiotherapy can help by restoring flexibility, function and strength to keep your horse at the top of it's well being and performance.
