The HORSE bodyforming® training is a holistic and sensorimotor training. The horse feels through the diversity of movements, active systematic stretching and the release of tension, a better body feeling and also achieves fine motor skills, coordination and control of its own body.
This gives the horse the confidence it needs to be able to move in any situation. His mental and physical balance and the maintenance of balance on fundamental stability is the key.
WHAT IS THE HORSE BODYFORMING® PROGRAM OBJECTIVE?
Mental balance, reactivity and perception of pain to sensitize the body and make horses capable of carrying the rider. Systematic stretching up to the physiological purpose of the movement.
The word “fascia” means “connective tissue”. Fascias surround most of the body’s structures (muscles, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, etc.), they are fibro-elastic, are interconnected and create a network from head to toe.
This living connective tissue is capable of “learning and memorizing”.
Through the stimulus of the fascial roulette (massage tool), the muscle tone of the targeted muscle chain is deliberately lowered and the horse is brought from pain to relaxation.
