What happens when we don’t practice proper posture with our horse?


Our horse stays heavy on their front ends while bracing on their brachiocephalicus (the base of their necks) which is how we get that upside down neck. Also continuous bracing on the brachiocephalicus will cause poll tension, nerve impingements and a whole slew of other issues.


The horse’s neck shouldld be longer on top and shorter on the bottom with no big knots or tension lines sticking out. It should look smooth and uniform.


We can either bring functionality or dysfunction to our horses in the way of our daily handling. The way we halter, lead, tie and saddle should all be done with proper posture in mind.


Keeping the horse relaxed and not bracing on their lower neck will allow for better posture which in turn teaches the horse to begin to use their thoracic sling which is very important for under saddle work and collection.


Plus proper posture does help your horse feel better inside themselves as they release tension and build and strengthen all the right places!!


If you need help getting started on practicing proper posture for your horse, I’d absolutely love to help you!! It is so important for their health and well-being!
