April Battles travels extensively helping horses and their owners come to a new understanding and balance of how to be able to move better together.
If you are wondering why your horse is tripping, short striding, pinning ears, swishing tail when saddled or asked for the trot or canter, April can help you find the issue and what the horse needs to resolve it.
Training issues - unwilling to flex at the poll, behind the bit, unwilling to extend the gait or canter on the other lead or stop quickly, a horse that turns better to one side than the other - these are all signs the horses body has restriction of motion somewhere and can not do what we ask of them.
These simple yoga stretches for horse will help you identify where the problem area is and help the horse work it out. If your horse cannot do these exercises easily, please call April for help as there are deeper issues to resolve.
You can have a well rounded, light on the bit, collected horse with smooth gaits and transitions that can become a fun and willing equine partner.
