Everyone knows how important it is for an athlete to incorporate muscle stretching into his or her training routine. It’s no different for horses. Horses that don’t get the benefit of stretching exercises can find it more difficult to perform to their ability. They can lose their flexibility. They can lose their power. Like humans, they can also become tight, uncomfortable and more prone to injury.
That’s why it’s important for every rider and performance-horse owner to know something about muscle stretching for horses. It’s also why we produced this video.
