    Massage and chiro are actually two separate modalities! Massage addresses the muscles and chiro addresses the skeleton of the horse. One must be a vet/human chiro with training to be a chiro.

    Well...I saw this man's video of a piaffe, and all I have to say it, the rider should never be doing more 'piaffe' than the horse.

    How often are you doing the massages, are you allowing him time off along with the massages for that area to heal? Are you absolutely sure the newer saddle fits correctly. If he's still sore in the...

    I completely agree with this-I've had so many horses I've worked on that the trainer/rider/farrier, etc had messed up so badly-it wasn't fun addressing those issues either. The saddle fit and...
