I have several Icelandic horses and started last summer to stretch them after riding. Gently in the beginning. It has change my horses performing alot and the once with high tension get more calm. I recommend that all riders stretch their horses after training to prevent injuries and to get close to the soul of the horse.

These are all the things that my VET/Chiroprator has taught me to do with my horses over the last several years, and yes, they really do pay off! Glad that you put this up for others to watch and learn from. After all, we stretch and exercise before a workout, why shouldn't they! Thanks
