Pain is an amazing motivator!
How to get rid of it is pretty much the ongoing athletic
dilemma. My 8-minute warm-up in my new video is a by-product
of all my injuries and illnesses, in which I always have
played a pro-active role in healing.
We all have those "idgy-gidgy" spots that nag
us if we are active. And you better believe the horses have
them, too. We have so much more information about biomechanics
today and that information forms the cornerstone of all
athletic training programs. Find a good massage person in
your area and an equine massage therapist and that alone
will place you ahead of your competition in understanding
how your body and your horses bodies get stressed
and strained through work.
Being injured is actually an opportunity. We are forced
to learn more about our personal physiology. This allows
for some great "teaching moments". Our injuries
and past mistakes truly teach us how to prevent injuries
in the future.
