Equine Biomechanics and Exercises to Aid Performance
June 8 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£75
This CPD day in Somerset is provided by Becky Baylis with the help of Cassie Hall, and is aimed at Merishia Massage graduates, but we welcome other equine manual therapists. Please note: if you haven’t trained in Merishia Massage, the fee is £95.
The day consists of:
Over-view of the musculoskeletal structure of the horse including prime movers and their actions.
Demonstration of pole exercises to improve proprioception, hoof-eye co-ordination, joint mobility and foot placement.
Bimochanics for the horse in different roles.
Participants will come away with an insight into concussion forces, practical exercises that can support riders and horses with the focus on loading muscles for the strengthening phase and developing increased joint mobility and proprioception.
