Light therapy before training exercises?
Why is light therapy beneficial before training exercises?
Why do horses benefit from light therapy "before" training exercises?
Many equestrians know the pleasant effect of a physiotherapeutic treatment that is preceded by infrared heat radiation. The musculature is completely relaxed before the actual therapy begins. It is similar when the horse owner allows his horse a few minutes under the equine solarium before riding. The muscles relax and the horse is at ease.
A horse that is relaxed before training exercises has significantly fewer problems with muscle tension. In addition, the equestrian can work with the horse much more effectively, as this is more relaxed and more willing to work.
