Kinesiology taping on human athletes is all the rage. The idea behind taping is that it provides incredible support and stabilization of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously stretching and flexing like a "second skin" to allow full range of motion. Our equine athletes can benefit hugely from taping techniques, and this guidebook provides the ultimate reference for understanding both the uses of kinesiology tape and its numerous applications. With hundreds of color photographs and step-by-step instructions for the do-it-yourselfer, equine physiotherapist Katja Bredlau-Morich explains the following forms of kinesiology taping:

  • Muscle
  • Lymphatic
  • Scar
  • Fascia
  • Space
  • Hematoma
  • Stabilization
  • Tendon
  • Cross

In addition, numerous case studies demonstrate how taping can change your horse's life, keeping him pain-free and performing his best for years to come.
