Last week, you acquainted yourself with some external anatomy and guidelines of equine massage in Part One of Equinology INC®'s "A Horse Owner's Guide to Equine Massage." This week, you get to give it a go!
In "PART TWO: The Pocket of the Withers," Debranne Pattillo discusses issues related to the musculature of the withers and techniques for addressing the surrounding region. Whether or not your horse has displayed any of the "trouble signs" indicated, I encourage you to give these moves a try next time you have a few minutes before a ride--you may discover unexpected results.
I'm excited to hear about your experiences, and I'm looking forward to sharing next week's installment!
