Massaging your horse is good for them and super fun! There are tons of books and online resources that have simple massage techniques that are really easy to pick up. While some sensitive, thin-skinned horses may not enjoy it, as long as you pay attention to the way your horse is responding, it can become a really positive experience for them. One of my horses is indifferent, but the other loves it and leans into it. While professional massages are great for performance horses, there's no reason you can't almost the same results for free! Massage can improve your horse's performance and ease pain, and it's overall a great thing to try.
