The spine is the centre of the body, everything connects to the spine and when something is out of balance, it can have an effect on the whole body system, causing unwanted tension which leads to discomfort, and performance issues within your horse. When the horse is moving, the spine moves in a wave (up and down and side to side). Through tension and pain this "wave movement" is interrupted and restricted. With a gentle, mindful rocking movement, BB Horse Care enables the horse to relax and let go of the tension in the muscles and tissue around the spine.
While doing this form of treatment on the horse, it is important to stay under the threshold of the horse’s nervous system to avoid resistance or the risk of the horse losing balance. This passive swinging of the spine is a very relaxing and relieving treatment for the tissue around the spine and reaches deeper layers of the body.
