Structural Balancing

Structural Balancing may be  the most exciting aspect of The Right Touch bodywork. Using passive stretching and mobilization techniques, horses' posture can be balanced or corrected to effect improved appearance, comfort, and performance.

Horses that appear to have low tail set with their hind legs parked too far forward can be changed to have a longer more relaxed body, higher tail set, and hind legs farther back in a more correct position. Horses that have a sway back appearance can be changed to have their backs higher with more apparent back muscle. Horses with crooked ankles or who toe-in or out, can have straighter ankles and feet with structural balancing.

In short, many things that have been considered poor conformation are in fact poor posture that can be improved through structural balancing bodywork.
