Equine Massage DVD


Equine Massage is for everyone who rides or trains horses. Learn to massage your horse to bring about a speedy recovery after injury & prevent injuries re-occurring.

Use massage to relax your horse, initiate muscle repair & improve temperament which increases stamina & reduces the risk of injury.

The horse is the epitome of strength & grace & to watch a beautifully toned & healthy horse perform, or simply running wild, is truly awe inspiring.However, for all his strength & might, the horse is prone to strains, sprains & stresses the same as humans.

  Veterinarians, owners, trainers, riders & drivers alike are becoming aware that like humans, massage is having a dramatic effect on horses physically, mentally & emotionally.
  The cost of care & maintenance of a horse, whether it is performing or just a pet can be tremendous. Consistent training & preventative care eliminates lengthy, costly treatments. It is much better to maintain the health & performance of a horse through contsistant training & massage therapy.
  A healthy well trained horse will be a top performer. Massage therapy will guarantee the continuatin of peak performance.
  The intent of this Equine Massage DVD is
  •  To bring about full recovery after injuries
  • To seek out & prevent injuries
  • To address structured problems
  • Find problems before they become problems.
  • To enhance performance

  Muscles must be in tune with one another. A healthy muscle will compensate for an injured one, decreasing circulation & freedom of movement (creating tension & strain on the total structure).
  Benefits of Massage

The DVD is split into 9 chapters, fully navigable from the menu screen. It was originally filmed in 1995 on NTSC VHS video cassette, so the quality of the film is not up to modern day standards, however, the information contained in this DVD is as relevant today as it was when the programme was created. 

The DVD is supplied in a full sized case with a colour printed inlay. The graphics are printed directly onto the disk not onto a label, so there is no possibility of the disk becoming jammed in the player due to label curling.
  With a running time of approximately 51 minutes, Stuart Farnell will explain & demonstrate the various massage techniques.
