The #1 Grooming Tool You Never Knew You Needed
By Amanda Tollen
A few years ago my horse started to show the classic signs of back and hock soreness. He was cranky under saddle and did not want to go forward. I was fortunate enough to be boarding at a farm that had a connection to a well-known equine chiropractor and I quickly scheduled an appointment with her. This is when that chiropractor, Dr. Pat Bona introduced me to the Posture Prep Cross Fiber Grooming Tool, and I immediately saw the benefits of the unique tool by the end of our first session. Horse Tack Co. is proud to carry the Posture Prep Cross Fiber Groomer. Use the promo code “LoveTheRide” upon checkout to receive 15% off your order, all-the-time and anytime!
More About This Wonder Tool:
The Posture Prep should be used on the horse’s whole body, head to toe (or hoof, if you will). As you use the groomer, you will see the skin start to release as you move over the horse’s body. Tissue that surrounds the muscles and ligaments under the skin, known as fascia, can become twisted over time, resulting in poor posture, movement and suppleness. Myofascial release with the Posture Prep allows the skin and underlying structures to move more freely, allowing the horse to be more comfortable at rest and in motion. Posture Prep can be incorporated into your regular grooming routine, and your horse will thank you, and show his appreciation by licking, chewing, and yawning as his tension leaves the body.
Good, responsible horse owners should jump at tools like Posture Prep that are effective and affordable. Here are the top reasons you should add the Posture Prep to your tack box.
- Jump start your warmup while grooming
- Improve posture and movement
- Target known or suspected problem areas
- Improve relaxation and suppleness
- Improve body awareness and communication
- Reduce wear and tear on joints
- Reduce stress and strain on muscles
- Reduce poor behavior, anxiety, and tension
I certainly notice a difference in my horse’s comfort under saddle when I take the time to really dig in with the Posture Prep and focus on my horse’s problem areas. He actually starts pawing (bad habit, I know!) when I move the tool from an area that he really likes massaged. It’s his way of communicating along with the traditional licking and chewing signs of relaxation.
