Releasing Tension through In Hand Work - Tension (or stiffness, bracing, resistance) can develop in your horse for a variety of reasons- improper posture, a sedentary lifestyle, an old injury, fear, confusion, and more. Tension will block the flow of energy through your horse's body much like a kink will block the floor of water through a hose. Tension will make it harder for your horse to move in an athletic and healthy way. Therefore, before we try to develop our horse physically, it's best to discover and work through those areas of tension. Once tension is released, everything else will be easier.
