I was asked by the owner of this beautiful mare to help her with Gymnastic Groundwork.
Through some unfortunate injuries in the paddock a few years back, she has some problems in her hind quarters.
Gymnastic Groundwork is a great way to help the horse to become more supple and straight in the body and prepare them for riding.
But with horses that had injuries (what many of them have) it is a great way to rehabilitate the horse, guide the horse how to use its body in a “correct” way, strengthen the body and create flexibility.
This mare has many challenges and one of them is rotating the rib cage on the left rein. After two sessions we could already see a slight improvement.
I am excited to see what will happen when we continue to help her with the Groundwork.
