Christina is an equine massage therapist who gave Mara a massage this morning. This is treatment for stiffness mostly, and Mara loves everything about it! Proponents of equine massage list a number of positive effects, including the improvement of movement and reduction of pain or stress. We use it for conditioning, wellness and her overall fitness.
After a massage you do not ride them that day. Mara had a big snack, a big drink and returned to her paddock for a day of relaxation.
