No Back Pain
Why this site is called ' No Back Pain '
As a horse owner, I have always been very aware of how my horses ' backs look and how they evolve. I've always checked them for soreness and I've been very frustrated when a horse has been sore or tense in its back. What was the reason, the saddle, the riding or something else.
I have two slipped disk myself and I know how terrible it is to be in pain and how limited one can be in his movements.
Because I have back problems, I can not help thinking about how the horse must feel when it is sore in its back and at the same time has to carry a rider.
I know how long it takes to get pain free and how important it is that I keep my back strong and use it correctly all the time.
It is exactly the same with our horses. The horse must be worked in a way that develops the topline so that it can carry a rider without getting hurt.
If the horse is sore, it will some how compensate and then injuries can occur.
Therefore, it is incredibly important to me that the horse has no pain in the back, because only then can I make sure it gets a strong and well-developed topline-hence the name.
