Stretch Exercises for Your Horse: The Path to Perfect Suppleness
By: Karin Blignault ISBN: 1570762457 PRICE: $0.00
In Stretch Exercises for Your Horse, occupational therapist and equestrian trainer Karin Blignault illustrates how the controlled stretching of muscles long used to enhance human athletic performance can also be applied to the horse to prevent injury, alleviate pain, and improve performance. The individual exercises are explained in detail, with clear instructions on performing both passive stretches from the ground and active stretching exercises from the saddle.
While the information in this book is excellent, we do caution the user that many of the body mechanics seen in the photos could be unsafe for both the horse and the person providing the stretch.
