About The Book

Massage as a curative treatment has been practised in China since around 2700BC and has long been established as a highly effective therapy for both horse and rider. In this authoritative book, leading veterinary physiotherapist Mary Bromiley introduces the reader to the benefits and techniques of both Eastern and Western massage for horse and rider. The author covers in detail the surface anatomy, circulatory, muscular and nervous systems, enabling the reader to identify and understand the reasons and philosophies underlying the many different methods and types of massage.

New in paperback for 2010, this classic text has proved to be essential reading for all those involved in equestrianism.

"Mary Bromiley's vast wealth of experience in treating horses and riders from all disciplines makes her well qualified to explain the art of massage." Horse and Hound

"Mary is a world leader in equine massage and also an excellent teacher. We are very lucky that through this book she is prepared to share her considerable knowledge with us in a language that we can all understand"
