Equine Complex Vertebral Malformation
A condition that Sharon May-Davis discovered more than 20 years ago. Today, the condition is finally gaining more recognition and awareness. A lot of information and research has been spent on it, the complexity of the story makes it such a long journey.
More and more, horse owners get their horse x-rayed in the caudal neck. And then..it shows your horses has ECVM... the ground subsides from under your feet … AND NOW ?! AND NOW?!
In this Webinar we will talk about what Passive Physio can contribute as a management tool and the influence of the environment on the physical and mental body.
“Where the horse spends the most time, the most gains can be made.”
By looking at where the horse comes from, how it works and how it originally lives, gives us so much information about what is needed to keep the horse healthy and fit.Passive Physio was created by looking at where the horse comes from and what the basic needs of the horse are.The shape and functionality of each body is created in such a way that it works for us and that we can live and survive.
And let the last sentence, just not be the case for horses with ECVM. They are born with a body that is not functional, whether they are ridden or not. Even those who are kept in such a natural environment are often hindered by their disability, but with small adjustments you can support the horse well! It sometimes seems even more important to them!
If you are physically limited, it seems as if all other aspects of nutrition, exercise, congeners and mental fitness are even more important.Passive Physio is actually about environmental management; about offering variable feeding positions and also adjusting the housing of your horse so that you offer him the opportunity to train certain muscles that are important for his self-carriage and good posture almost unnoticed. By adapting the environment of the horse, the horse trains itself during the day.
