What is Core Balancing? It is a method of body work employed by a trained practitioner that redistributes a horse’s weight properly to its extremities. Treatment consists of a series of manipulations using the careful application and release of pressure with a thorough understanding of the dynamic structure of the horse. It is virtually painless, working with the horse, not against it, to achieve lasting results. Many horses show immediate relief from painful symptoms. It’s not uncommon to see a horse participate in its own treatment. They know they are twisted up and want desperately to uncoil and relax. Weight begins to redistribute over the extremities and the horse’s balance improves. The amount and speed of improvement depends on the age of the horse and the severity of its physical problems. Equine Core Balancing improves balance, collection, flexion, strength, agility, speed, suspension, extension, propulsion, coordination, timing, gaits, responsiveness, willingness, mental condition, endurance, resilience and recovery from work, stress or illness… Resulting in a happier, healthier horse!
