Assessment: This horse presented with a “tight back,” upside down posture, was “tightrope walking,” had difficulty maintaining a gait or canter, had occasional spooky and herd-bound behavior, crookedness, she crowded people and had an aloof attitude….

Session Notes: Once this mare was able to control and relax the flexor and adductor muscles of her limbs and abdominal area, she went from extremely base-narrow to having a more open chest and square limb position. This enabled her to move with ease and balance, allowing her to place her feet with more intention and manage herself more easily in space. Note also that her barrel, visibly protruding to the right in the before photo, is now aligned symmetrically behind her shoulders.
