All the horses I work on usually have something going on, as in being a bit tight, a bit stressy, showing some kind of shortness in stride etc etc, and Its not hard to get them going again at all. When the fascia gets tight so do the groups of muscles that all work together at the same time to provide one single movement.Fascia is one of the most pervasive substances in the horses body. When we look at a horse, we look at it coat or skin. Well underneath the skin is a lot of (layers) superficial fascia. It actually blends in with the horses skin. Horses only have a thin coat of covering really. The layering of superficial fascia is quite thick.
