Horse Conformation vs. Posture | Equine Massage Case Study – Brego — 4 Comments

  1. Hello, I'm an equine and canine sports massage therapist outside New Orleans (Slidell). I just thought I'd tell you I enjoyed your summary of the work on Brego, re: conformation vs. posture. Thanks for the good work!

    • Thanks so much for your feedback and for visiting Nancy! It never ceases to amaze me what changes horses can make with a little time and consistent attention to their needs from a “whole horse” perspective.

  2. I appreciate the RX for Parelli and  enjoy your daily info.  I just got a new horse a few weeks ago that has long toes and low heels.  I have been working with my natural balance farrier to get him back.  I have also been doing the red light on his feet and legs. I also have him on a joint supplement.  What else could I be doing to protect his tendons, ligaments, and muscles so he heals properly. I am in Colorado or I would have you over to work on him.

    Thanks,  Pam Schafer



    • Hi Pam!  Thanks so much for your kind words.  It sounds like you are covering your bases really well with your new horse.  The only thing I might add would be perhaps stretching of the extensor muscles on the front side of the leg, which will invariably be slightly contracted due to the hoof angles you described.  This will help the body come more readily into balance by softening that contracted soft tissue.  You’ll also want to make sure you rule out other issues in the body that may be contributing to the low heel/long toe.  Dental imbalances and problems at the poll, as well as sore feet can contribute to and exacerbate the problem. 

      Good luck and Blessings with your new buddy 🙂
