Improvemento of health conditions and performance of therapy horses – Asociación Madrileña de Terapias Ecuestres (MAIARA)
Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre and Asociación Madrileña de Terapias Ecuestres-MAIARA, have agreed to cooperate for the 8th time, in a project specially designed to improve the health conditions and performance of therapy horses.
All horses used in therapy went through a physical check-up and the inspection of a physiotherapist, and a specialist form the team at Equidinamia practised three assessments and individual interventions. Technical advice also included recommendations about the most suitable equipment, and training on fitness issues, as stretching exercises, and workouts.
Horse care is a key part of therapy, which shouldn´t be forgotten when preparing a session, to ensure it is conducted in optimal conditions, for both the riders as the horses. FPDE considers it is a priority, essential for their good health and performance.
