Each athlete’s time with Inhand includes a consultation to address ongoing and/or new issues, a soft tissue session, a static and dynamic postural assessment and other modalities as required to complete an entire body evaluation. Areas requiring improvement are identified and working in conjunction with riders, owners and the horse’s healthcare team, exercise plans are developed, combining good health and equine/canine physiology to achieve the goals for performance.
