New in paperback, this classic text is essential for all those involved in equestrianism, from the backyard rider to top competitors worldwide
 
Massage as a curative treatment has been practiced in China since around 2700 BC and has long been established as a highly effective therapy for both horse and rider. In this authoritative book, leading veterinary physiotherapist Mary Bromiley introduces the reader to the benefits and techniques of both Eastern and Western massage for horse and rider. Covering in detail the surface anatomy, circulatory, muscular. and nervous systems, this book enables the reader to identify and understand the reasons and philosophies underlying the many different methods and types of massage.

Synopsis:

This is the first book to cover in depth the circulatory, muscular, and nervous systems of the horse and rider as they relate to massage. The author describes in detail the surface anatomy of both horse and man and shows how the muscles in both species are affected by movement. The various techniques, effects, and end results of each type of massage are thoroughly covered. The superb photographs and detailed lined drawings make this a must for all those involved in equestrianism and interested in massage.
