An enthusiast group joined South Florida Dressage Association for an in person meeting with certified equine rehabilitation practitioner, Dr. Allison Cannon, DVM in the covered arena at lovely Buttonwood Farm to discuss how a specific exercise program can improve a horse’s physical condition. Both flexibility and strength are required for the optimal performance in the sport horse. However, most horses lack in one or both of those areas due to natural imbalances or because they are coming back after an injury. Dr. Cannon discussed with us how to identify the issues and how to develop a plan to help you maintain a happy, strong and flexible equine athlete. Many thanks to our equine volunteers for allowing Doctor Cannon demonstrate helpful exercises.
Thank you to everyone for remembering to bring a chair and parking outside the gate so that the Buttonwood borders could use the parking area beside the barn.
Check out the photos from the event. Video is soon to follow.
