Royal Veterinary College: New study highlights impact of elastic resistance band training for horses

 
 
 
 

Many horses are affected by lameness and back problems, and these can be prevented or treated with training or rehabilitation programmes that aim to improve core muscle strength to increase dynamic stability. Until now however, there has been little supporting evidence on the efficacy of these programmes.

New research by the Royal Veterinary College has found that the use of a specific system of elastic resistance bands is extremely effective in increasing dynamic stability of the horse in trot. These elastic bands have therefore been proven to be a method horse owners can use to prevent injuries as well as overcome them. They are easily accessible to horse owners.
