Horseteopathy :: Equine Osteopathy, Osteopath Treatment for Horses
General equine osteopathic treatment (GEOT)
All horses, whatever their discipline, can benefit from a GEOT. This is a general loosen up of all its joints and muscles. This is particularly useful before work to increase suppleness; very important for dressage, polo ponies and showjumpers where agility is paramount; important for hunters and eventers to prevent pulls and strains, and for racers to ensure maximum movement of limbs for greater stride length and ground coverage.

Stretching the horse after exercise has the same effect as in humans; it prevents the build-up of lactic acid and therefore post-exercise stiffness. As a result your horse’s recovery will be more complete.
