Oesteopathy:knowing your horse's body inside and out

As with any athlete, horses can pick up injuries, but unlike human athletes, they cannot simply tell us where the pain is. Our job is to be familiar enough with our animals that when something goes out of kilter, we pick up on it quickly and treat the problem as early as possible. By doing so, we can reduce both the time and expense required to bring our horses back to full health.

Meath-based osteopath Samantha Sherrington believes that horse owners need to make a habit of observing their own horses to become familiar with what is normal and what is abnormal for each horse.
