5 practical tips for shoulder girdle dysfunction in your horse/ dog.

Understanding your horse/ dog is simple.

Follow these 5 practical tips from today:

1️⃣ Monitor. This can be done by filming, taking pictures or even creating a journal on what behaviours your horse/ dog is showing.

2️⃣Assessment. Take photos of your horse/ dog at least once a month. Full body from all angles with them stood as square as possible.

3️⃣ Remove pain. If pain is present, it needs management. Speak to your veterinarian and body worker on what is best for your horse/ dog.

4️⃣ Tailor your exercises. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.” If you are trying to improve the shoulder girdle stability then you need specific exercises.

5️⃣ Listen. Just like us, our horses and dogs communicate every day. Some days are better than others and it is our responsibility to observe their behaviour and listen to what they are saying.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
