Equine Remedial Exercise
Kylie has gained comprehensive experience in ground schooling for rehabilitation and has extensive knowledge in ground schooling methods from working at the Therapy Centre.
She implements training aids, pole work and proprioceptive exercises into her programmes enabling the most beneficial approach to rehabilitating horses.
She has aided exercising horses on both high speed treadmill and underwater treadmill for rehabiliation services.
She frequently holds Polework clinics to assist horses and riders with strength, balance and proprioception.
Equestrian Performance are advocates of Kinesiology taping which is used as indicated in both horse and rider. Kinesiology tape stimulates cutaneous mechanoreceptors in the skin, to increase proprioception and aid neuromuscular re-education and is particularly useful for increasing awareness of the body
Our results speak for themselves in the multiple winners that have been supported with Kinesiology tape. Our tape is frequently seen on racehorses running for The Swanson Racing Yard, and has been labelled "Racing Stripes" because of the success we have experienced with it
We have had particular success with Kylie using kinesiology tape as a means of treating muscle problems and have had fantastic results. One particular horse that was about to be retired, had this means of treatment together with Kylie performing her routine exercises on him, and this has turned around his career, with two wins and numerous placings.
