Horses and ponies may be susceptible to musculoskeletal problems for various reasons; poorly fitting saddles, bridles and rugs can lead to misalignments. The work that we ask our horses to do also has a big impact on their bodies, when misalignments occur it can lead to muscle spasm and soreness as well as reduced neural function.
