What are the Benefits of Horse Stretching?
Horses are athletes regardless of whether the horse competes in an English or Western discipline or is ridden on relaxing trail rides or in an arena. Just like human athletes, a horse's muscles can become tight, stiff, sore, strained or even develop tears. Stretching a horse’s muscles is an important part of maintaining his or her overall health and fitness as well as an important component of successful injury rehabilitation in many situations.
The benefits obtained by safely and effectively stretching a horse's muscles are:
• Improve flexibility and range of motion (ROM) thereby enabling the horse to perform to the best of their ability
• Prevent injury by strengthening supportive tissue and helping to guard against muscle tightness and tendon shortening
• Reduce post-exercise soreness, stiffness and muscle fatigue
• Improve disposition by relaxing the horse
• Provide early warning signs of a potential injury
• Helps the rider bond with their horse

Ratings and Reviews
This is the most comprehensive guide I have seen, all in one place. This app saves time and money while giving me everything I need to do the stretches right. Win win!
I am confused. Did I just pay 2.99 to see the introduction? Pretty deceiving. I would have at least gone to a stretch that interested me the most had I known each stretch was an additional fee and download. I guess buyer beware.
Developer Response ,
We are very sorry you did not see the description of the App in the App Store, on our website or Facebook page explaining that for $2.99, you get 3 videos (one is an intro to horse stretching to be sure stretches are done safely and correctly) and the rest of the stretching videos are available for purchase individually or as one bundle. There was absolutely no intent to deceive. Please contact us at Support@StretchYourHorse.com so we can resolve your concern to your satisfaction.
