Why would a stallion benefit from massage?
Collection is a physically demanding process that involves complex biomechanics.
Massage is an excellent way to help the stallion cope with the physical process and to support the longevity of his breeding career.
To ensure a stallion is confident and comfortable, collections should be tailored to his preferences (preferred side, collecting style, dummy/mare/ground etc).
The collection may only take 30 – 60 seconds but the intense physical activity involves his whole body, engaging key muscles and joints for prolonged periods.
Through my work at Stallion AI Services, I have helped stallions who were struggling to collect. Massage can mean the difference between a failed collection or a successful collection.
I have worked on a variety of stallions from young competing stallions to retired International Grand Prix stallions.
For more information, please contact me and I'll be happy to discuss.
