NAF Int Hartpury Horse Trials – a very busy & successful Dressage day – Quicky & Ben ready for jumping tomorrow!

Today was an extremely busy day for myself, Astier & the horses – but both horses performed wonderful tests! Quicky was a little ‘hot’ during the Dressage so as you can see from the pictures (gallery) she enjoyed a massage at the end of the day to relax and hopefully relieve some of that tightness for SJ & XC tomorrow.

Massage after competition for both horse and rider, particularly before the next day of competition can help reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) which horses suffer from the same as humans. Typically ‘hot’ horses/ponies can also gain by simply relaxing them…

I shall blog the final scores tomorrow…
