Equine Myofunctional Therapy is a hands-on massage therapy that focuses on the musculotendinous system of the horse. Combined with stretching and other complementary techniques, Equine Myofunctional Therapy works with you to keep your horse balanced, supple and comfortable in both their work and downtime.

All horses can benefit

Equine Myofunctional Therapy is suitable for the majority of horses, regardless of their breed, age or discipline. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Pleasure and pony club mounts
  • Competition horses (Eventing, Dressage, Show jumping, Western etc.)
  • Harness horses
  • Race horses
  • Stock horses
  • Breeding stock
  • Retired companions

How It Works

The aim of Equine Myofunctional Therapy is to improve, repair or maintain range of motion, elasticity, circulation, health and the overall physical performance of the horse.

This is achieved through releasing adhesions between the skin, fascia and muscle tissues, as well as improving the circulation of blood and lymph.

Treatment promotes the flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout the tissues and enables the flushing of harmful deposits from around the joints and deep acid deposits from within the muscles (including lactic acid build-up from exercise).

Problems your horse may encounter

Equine Myofunctional Therapy may assist a variety of problems; these include, but are not limited to:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Adhesions (knots)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Stiffness
  • Poor flexibility
  • Uneven gait
  • Inability to track-up
  • Lack of cadence
  • Transition problems
  • Difficulty collecting or extending

Benefits for your horse

In the days and weeks after an Equine Myofunctional Therapy treatment(s), you are likely to notice:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Increased muscle tone
  • A positive effect on total training and performance
  • A healthier, shinier coat
  • Increased activity and energy from your horse
  • A happier disposition
