About the course

It is increasingly recognised that rehabilitation is a vital element of recovery. Not only does it help to get the horse back on the road but reduces the risk of recurrence and other injuries through correcting movement.

This course will introduce you to the world of rehab, specifically looking at the muscular system and the importance of using muscles correctly to allow them to heal and develop to support the horse in the future.

Focusing on the sports horse, we will be joined by individuals who work with the British Equestrian Team to look at case selection, decision making and who should be involved in rehabilitation.

We will discuss training aids, including Pessoas, side reins, rollers, kinesiotaping, Therabands and over reach boots, the use of pole work and the importance of the tack and it’s fit.

The day will finish with a ridden demonstration of what rehabilitation is aiming to achieve.
