Today’s performance horses work very hard to achieve the ultimate results. Strong emphasis is placed on training, nutrition, preventative and palliative care to help horses reach their maximum potential.
This can also be said for dogs such as greyhounds, working dogs and those who compete at competitive levels in areas such as dog trials or agility.
There are expectations for animals to run faster, jump higher and accurately execute technically difficult manoeuvres. Unfortunately, such performances result in more injuries, pain and prematurely worn out animals.
Equine Bowen has a range of modalities that can enhance performance, reduce further risk of injury and encourage the body to heal, repair and maintain itself.

PLEASE NOTE: The modalities mentioned should not replace the use of a veterinarian but can be used in conjunction to assist with the healing and well being of the animal.
Tip: Check your Girth
Check your girth to ensure there is no pinching of the horse between flaps on certain saddles and the girth itself.
It should not be too large as to do up at the top of the straps or too small to do up the bottom of the straps.
When the girth is attached to the straps it is important to count the holes up or down evenly on both sides as this allows the saddle to sit between the sling of the girth evenly.
