For recovering from an event or preparing for one, or just for your overall sense of connection and competence, it's hard to beat massage. Massage can help a rider reduce physical imbalances, improve range of motion, increase body awareness, ease aches and pains, and relax tension. Tight or shortened muscles, knots and adhesions, "guarding" sore areas, and energy imbalances in your body inevitably will affect your riding, as will stress and emotional tension. Your horse can sense it all! Performance in dressage, show jumping, polo, even pleasure riding benefits when the rider is relaxed and comfortable in his or her own skin. A program of regular therapeutic massage can help remove impediments in your seat, legs, hands, back, balance, flexibility, even in your energetic connection with your horse.
