Has your horse developed a musculoskeletal problem causing problems with lameness, gait, and tension? Have you noticed reluctance to canter, shorter strides or head carriage issues?

These are common signs and symptoms that can affect the performance and behaviour of your horse and ultimately their long term health. Just as we humans suffer the results of physical stresses, so does your horse.

Equine Osteopathy is recognised by vets, horse owners and the stable team as an effective and natural treatment for many equine conditions. The results of treatment can include;

  • Improved performance at racing, jumping and dressage
  • Balanced behaviour
  • More natural gait and normal stride
  • Improved head and neck posture
  • Relief from pain

If you’ve noticed physical or behavioural changes in your horse and would like to see them improve, please contact WeaverHouse Equine Osteopaths today by completing the contact form or calling 0845 519 8614 and discover how we can help.

  • Take care and be aware

    If you’re going to be out and about on the roads this Spring and Summer please ensure you wear reflective clothing and you’re aware of the equine highway code. Before you take a horse on the road, you should:
    • Ensure all of your tack fits well and is well maintained
    • Make sure you can control the horse you are riding. 
    • Never ride a horse without both a saddle and bridle




    Before riding off or turning, look behind you to make sure it is safe, then give a clear arm signal. When riding on the road, you should:

    ·     Keep to the left with both hands on the reins unless you are signalling
    ·     Keep both feet in the stirrups
    ·     Not carry another person
    ·     Not carry anything which might affect your balance or get tangled up with reins
    ·     Ride your horse near traffic only if you are confident that it will not be spooked.     Remember, large or noisy vehicles can often spook horses
    ·     Be aware of fast-moving vehicles on rural roads especially near crests of hills or bends
    If you would like to make an osteopathic appointment for one of our team (Adam, Gareth or Grace) to treat your horse please give us a call and speak to Erin our Equine coordinator who will be happy to help. 01270 629933 
      
    Stay safe and have a great Spring and Summer
