Keeping your horse's movement system healthy: A conversation with Dr Gillian Tabor.
Show Notes

Welcome to the first of three new podcasts for you to listen to over the festive season!

I am delighted to share this fascinating and informative conversation with @drgilliantaborphysio  about how you can keep your horses healthy and moving well, when to get help, and how to navigate the complexity of so much information online.

My guest on this episode is physiotherapist Dr Gillian Tabor. I have followed Gillian's research for many years, and more recently her social media channels.  In this conversation we cover many topics including;

  • How to navigate some of the claims made on social media. 
  • Neuroplasticity, pain and restoring your horse's confidence in moving.
  • A deeper dive into understanding pain.
  • What does the horse need movement-wise in order to carry a rider.
  • Where to get support and advise - and links to Gillian's podcast and social media.

I loved this conversation and I hope you do too. Please share your thoughts and reflections with myself and Gillian.
