'TIS THE SEASON.....
Over the last few weeks I have seen an increasing number of "unsound" mares as a result of their end of season blowout!
The final season of the year can often be quite strong and result in a sensitive, tense lumbar region and hind limb issues as a result. (Not to mention the temperament changes some experience).
I've mentioned it a number of times before but as you see from the images I have found online the ovaries and their nerves are directly linked to the front part of the lumbar spine.
When the ovaries are irritated then that portion of the spine becomes over sensitive and as a result the local muscle can become tense and sore.
The lovely mare I photographed had a recent season and you can quite clearly see raised muscle in the lumbar region.
Following a treatment she is moving much better.
If your horse has had a large season recently and is now underperforming you may want to book an appointment.
