Improve the Horse’s Balance, Movement, and Self-Carriage with These Easy Tail Exercises by Margret Henkels – The tail is a major part of the hindquarters puzzle of any horse, of every breed. Many tails are like broomsticks: stiff, unable to bend laterally, or curve upward. Many horses don’t want humans to handle tails at all, while others are fine with it. Complete release of the tail is bodywork that’s key to improving self-carriage and collection.  In this article, learn why one cannot spend too much time releasing a tail.  Short opportunities bring good results, even when the horse snacks, or when we spend time companionably. Horses love this kind of bodywork.

This article is an excerpt from book, Is Your Horse 100%?: Resolve Painful Limitations in the Equine Body with Conformation Balancing and Fascia Fitness by Margaret Henkels, published by Horse and Rider Books. Read the entire article to learn more!
