Equine Massage Therapy

Equine massage therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues and joints of the body by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate, and/or relieve pain.  Emphasis is given to early intervention and prevention of long term injuries to these structures. Only veterinarians can diagnosis an equine condition and are therefore the equine’s primary health care practitioner.  Fahr Raine Equestrian will work closely with the attending veterinarian to ensure that all possible contraindications are being ruled out and the horse is receiving the best possible care.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

What can massagy therapy do for your horse?
