Other take away messages from Vanessa Beach’s Equine Massage Clinic:
they have to be done correctly, no cheating!
1. Stretch head to Mid shoulder then to elbow on each side
2. Stretch head to Middle of rib then to lower tummy on each side
3. Stretch head to Mid hip then to stifle on each side
For tight hamstrings:
Back up your horse in the back hand to stretch the hind end and open up the lower hind end muscles. If you’re having a difficult time, align your horse with a wall and make them back up with your fingers tapping the mid rib.
“Assume-o” - a new term we came up with to describe the safest way for the handler to position themselves when stretching front and back legs. Think of "assume the position of a sumo wrestler" to protect your own back while stretching out your horse.
