Rehabilitation Exercise Videos

As part of your horse’s rehabilitation plan, our clinicians may recommend some at-home exercises. Below are several videos that help explain how to preform some of our most commonly recommended rehab exercises.

Please note that these exercises are intended to only be used if your veterinarian has prescribed them for your horse. You should always consult with your veterinarian before starting any new rehab program.
