Our trainer asks us to massage the horse's back everyday. We use a special cream for recovery.
A professionnel comes every two months to massage our horses, they really appreciate it!
I do, after each eventing competition or after a big training. Also in the winter time, I use a warming lotion to help the back recover quickly without suffering from the cold.
The back when I have time, but I try to do it once a week to relieve the horse's back.
I do. After a competition or an intense effort. I mainly massage the back, with a warming gel. I can see the horse getting relax and appreciating the moment!
