Billy, horse with Muscle issues

Presentation 

This gelding had poor circulation and muscle tone. He had sacroiliac and nerve pain in his back, causing him to buck when ridden. His coat was also dull and flat.

Care

The day after Billy’s Equine Touch session, the client sent me a photo, as she was so impressed with the change. Equine Touch increased circulation and released the traumatised muscles allowing Billy’s rump to recover overnight. The dramatic improvement continued over two further Equine Touch sessions until Billy was a different horse, and had stopped bucking entirely.

Princess could not pick up her legs

Grey Appaloosa mare. 28 years old and retired.

Presentation

Princess was unable to pick up either of her front feet for cleaning and trimming and could not put weight on her back legs. Her posture looked uncomfortable and she misbehaved due to pain. He body was compensating for many issues going on and she was in need of Equine Touch body work.

Care 

After just one session of the Equine Touch, Princess was able to pick up her front feet and appeared pain free. After the session, she galloped off into the paddock bucking and kicking like a 2 year old – vastly different from her usual sedate walk. After the second Equine Touch Session Princess’s posture had improved and she was much easier to handle. Happier horse and she can live a comfortable life.
