Most ridden horses have at least some (subclinical) back pain.
A 2007 research study on back pain in horses showed positive effects from chiropractic, massage and bute, as compared with two control groups. (Each was tested separately, with chiropractic and massage being more effective than bute.)
What I find especially interesting from the study is this….
“Researchers theorized that subclinical back pain is present in all ridden horses…. Thirty-eight HEALTHY adult horses WITH NO HISTORY OF BACK PAIN from four farms were used for this study….
‘We hypothesized that low-grade back pain or inflammation was present in ridden horses, and we found this to be true; otherwise the MNTs would not have increased in all three treatment groups relative to the two control groups,” said Haussler… (A higher MNT means more pressure is required to elicit a response, so the horse is less sensitive or painful.)”
from theHorse.com, “Reducing Back Sensitivity” by Christy West, Digital Editor/ProducerMarch 30 2008, Article # 11573 Presented at the 2007 American Association of Equine Practitioners Convention, held Dec. 1-5 in Orlando, Fla. Kevin Haussler, DVM, DC, PhD, assistant professor within the Department of Clinical Sciences at Colorado State University, reported on the study.

No risk, 30-Day Money Back Guarantee Remember….
- You get to attend your lessons anytime, anywhere that’s convenient for you.
- You can take as long as you want to go through all the lessons.
- You can hit rewind or pause anytime, and watch the videos over and over.
- You don’t have to travel anywhere, which can be expensive and inconvenient.
- You can practice with your own horse
- Maybe most important of all, you’ll be learning gradually, and practicing over at least 16 weeks. This helps you create new habits, and also helps your horse learn about massage gradually, too. How often have you learned something, only to try it a few times and then set it aside and forget about it? With this on-line, multi-media format, you’ll get the lessons delivered a little at a time, so it’s not overwhelming with too much information to absorb all at once. And each time you get a new lesson or tip in your e-mail, you’ll be reminded to take a few minutes to practice, and your skills will build quickly.
- And the power of the internet makes this education much more affordable. You could easily pay anywhere from $1000-$2000 (not including travel expenses or time away from work) for a class that would cover this kind of information in person, and without all the other advantages of the on-line format.
- Remember, you can take as long as you need to watch your videos and read your other lessons and e-mails, and you get a 30-day money back guarantee, so go ahead and get started today while my offer is right here in front of you. Try it out, and see how much your horse will thank you!
