At this one day clinic you will learn all the exercises needed to stretch all the major muscle groups in the horse, with a focus on proper posture and safe stretching techniques.

This course explains
the benefits of stretching
the difference between active and passive stretching
how to use automatic responses to encourage horse to perform certain stretches
effectively introducing a horse to stretching for the first time
Ultimately, learn how to tailor a stretching program specifically for your own horses.
