On June 8 I was introduced to this guy and his younger brother, both Tennessee Walkers rescued from an unfortunate upbringing in their younger years. The first video capture's Leo's response to my touch after about 60 minutes of me working with his whole body. He had a major build up of tension in his neck, both front shoulders were restricted in range of motion, and his tensor fasciae latae on both sides were tight as drums.
There is text between each video and the like/comment icons, I just am not smart enough right now to re-code the font color so you can read it, although if you click and drag in the area it becomes highlighted and readable.
This second clip was during the bodywork session before the major releases began to take place. This is the original post by Leo's human partner, Elizabeth McAdoo from Wellsburg, WV. Read in her own words how she found Agile Equine Bodywork and what she and her husband Mike experienced. Again, sorry for the extra step in accessing her story!
Leo getting up from a roll after his bath. Rolling is a great way for horses to loosen themselves up! This is about 10 days after his first session.
Leo walking off after his bath, left hind range of motion looks good,
The picture above was taken in the 1980's. I began my journey in horse massage for the love of my childhood Morgan mare, Taffy, who passed away in March 2013 at the age of 32. I continue to practice bodywork for the love of all horses.
