Walking Back to Happiness
When horses come to us at Remus Horse Sanctuary, we often have to embark on a programme of rehabilitation. Many of them have been starved and neglected, and need to build up their strength and confidence.
So we were very interested to read this excellent article in Horse and Hound about the benefits of walking over ground and raised poles for rehabilitation or for general strengthening work.
The article focuses on research by the Animal Health Trust which found that using poles can help to increase range of movement, strengthen musculature and improve coordination and balance.
As you know, we are struggling with our hay stocks and costs currently. If you’ve not already had chance, please do make a donation to our appeal at: www.justgiving.com/campaign/urgenthaysummer2022.
