Hi Maddy,

In my opinion, combining vet cares and physiotherapy is very important.
Horses are always working: or in daily trainings or in competitions such as dressage,
jumping, eventing shows, horse racing… and, of course, as an elite athlete, we want our
horses to be at the top of their performance skills the longest time possible.
In order to do that the training should incorporate different techniques like an adequate training plan, physiotherapy to help or prevent lesions combined with vet cares : massages, osteopath, laser, shock waves...
