Ask Team Haras de la Belletière : what would you recommend for a horse who had an injury on his shoulder a few months ago?

Hello Silvia,

It is important to consolidate the peripheral muscles of the shoulder to compensate for the extension of the ligaments during the sprain. As part of the center we strengthen these muscles by exercising in the water mat with a water level just below the shoulder (you can do it by walking the horse to the sea or in a river). If you do not have the opportunity to work in the water, we should as often as possible, favor the long outings in various terrains.
