hi there. i was just wondering - what therapies people would be interested in for there horses - obviously we all know of a back man or dentist - but what else is there you'd really like to see available in your area for horses? massage? acupressure? head to toe chiropractics? any ideas on what you think you'd like to see - i'd love to know!!

thanks for reading

None. I've never had a horse that's needed therapy, I've always managed to get by with a vet and a farrier. I'm also too stingy to give someone money for doing anything to a healty horse that doesn't need veterinary attention. I think that's quite an old fashioned view though.

Personally, Id say that if you have a horse competing at a high level, it would definatley benefit from various types of therapies due to the unatural strain its put under.

I'd also like access to human scizophrenia drugs and a clinical phychiatrist if possible, these would be far more useful than a back massage!!

Id love a chiro to see to mine. One that could sort out ANYTHING that was wrong with them and keep them really supple!

Oh and quite like the idea of those massaging ones, just as a treat.
