Before your appointment
For the therapy to be most beneficial please ensure you follow this guide:
. Your horse must be dry and (ideally) clean-ish! Avoid using products such as coat conditioner or sheen.
. Bodywork is most effective if your horse is relaxed so be sure to tie your horse in a place they are comfortable eg - where field mates can be seen if your horse gets anxious when separated and try to arrange a session during quieter periods on the yard
. If your horse has had any recent veterinary visits or lameness or is on any other treatment shedule please first obtain advice from your veterinary surgeon - massage therapy is usually very beneficial for a lot of physical conditions but there are some contraindications.
. Do any intense training at least an hour before the session as immediately following the session only long, loose, light work is encouraged.
. If you do ride your horse before the session, please allow sufficient time to cool down and dry off prior to my arrival
. Make a note of your horse's behaviour, diet, mood and performance in between sessions as any changes may be due to a physical issue which I could help to address
