None of us are just one thing. We are all made of different elements. One of those elements is energy, and this energy lives in a vessel that is our body. It’s the same for all of us, including our horses. Our bodies and our energy are often not in sync. Sometimes we need to relax the body in order to access the mind, heart and the soul.
Relaxing the body through massage allows your horse to realign her body with her mind, realign her body with her heart and soul. Massage can also help you, the rider or partner, to realign your relationship with your horse, by offering a selfless service to your friend who gives so much in return. By offering massage you will find that you start to feel more of a balance in your relationship with your horse, and you just might find that this gift of massage is a gift that keeps on giving as it improves not only your bond, but your horse’s performance as well. Don’t surprised if you yourself start to benefit from giving massage. As your horse relaxes, it is difficult not to go along for that ride and find that at the end of a session you feel just as peaceful as your horse!
