Remi notes 20th July 2013
Pre massage assessment – Remi had been footsore earlier in the week.
On the lunge he looked as good as he ever has pre-massage. Barely falling to left shoulder , upright and relatively straight by comparison. No sign of being footsore.
Remi had been ridden in a lesson earlier that morning and had gone well in the lesson too – suspect lesson also loosened him and straightened him up.
Palpation and massage:
Palpation showed nothing out of the ordinary – some tension in left shoulder, base of neck (serratus v.c.) and tightness in glutes both sides but nothing unexpected in a working horse.
We didn’t lunge a second time but he walked out happily to the field.
What ever you are doing is working – keep at it!
