Therapeutic massage will provide solutions to these and many more symptoms.
Today's performance horses, more than any other time, work hard to reach their maximum potential. They are asked to jump higher, run faster and execute technically difficult maneuvers better than has ever been done before.
Like today's human athletes, more injuries and pain for our equine companions is the unfortunate result. Strong drugs many times are short fixes with less than desirable long-term side effects.
Fortunately, the horse has benefited from the progress of modern sports medicine for human athletes. Alternative treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture, herbology, and chiropractic therapies have become widely accepted and recognized.
Few realize that ancient Chinese and Romans and even our own Hopi Indians practiced forms of equine massage. It is surprising that it has not been used more with animals in modern time. Many problems of the equine are similar to those of humans that are treated with similar therapies.

Introducing the Pony Plate!
An innovative treatment that has been successful for animal therapy, health, fitness and prevention of injuries. Significant research has confirmed the positive effects of vibration technology for horses in therapy, competition or training at all levels. Also, for horses in confinement, it is beneficial for them to receive muscle vibration and stimulation for a lack of exercise.
One of the immediate effects of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is improved circulation of both blood and lymph. Anything that can improve circulation is of significant benefit to the equine athlete, and the total horse population. Increased blood flow improves oxygenation of the tissues, removal of toxins and metabolic waste, and enhances the body's ability to heal itself, drug free. Designed to increase bone density, reduce muscle soreness and inflammation. Even the healthiest animals can benefit from time on the Pony Plate vibration platform, which helps relax and build muscle and has also shown increased energy, improved flexibility, and calmed nerves.
we travel with our pony plate and offer it to the public at $15 per half hour
