Core Conditioning

Injury Prevention and Overall Wellbeing for your Horse

Core conditioning includes exercises and activities designed to strengthen the horse’s “core” muscles, which include the abdominal, back, and hindquarter muscles. This type of conditioning helps to improve the horse’s overall stability, balance, posture, and athletic performance.

By strengthening the core muscles, a horse is better able to support its spine, maintain proper posture, and move more efficiently, which can help prevent injury and improve its overall athletic ability. Activities include lunging, ground work, and specific exercises designed to target the core muscles.
