Kinesiology Taping

image30

Taping was developed in the eighties by a Japanese Chiropractor and is used today by top athletes, Premier League football players and we use a specially designed tape for horses. 


Tape should only ever be applied by a fully qualified taping practitioner.

How does it work?

Taping is used to enhance the body's own natural healing process and effects the skin, muscles and neurological system of the horse. 


By increasing micro-circulation, it allows the muscles and other soft tissue structures to be flushed of toxins. This activates the lymphatic system, allowing the toxins to be released from the body. This process re-occurs until the tape is removed. 

How can it help?

Tape can be used for a whole variety of reasons including...


  • Reducing Scarring
  • Reducing Oedema and Inflammation
  • Increasing circulation
  • Muscle Training (Excellent help for para-riders)
  • Supporting tendon and ligament injuries
  • Tension Relief

K-Tape Treatment

K- Active Equine Tape is water resistant and can be used when riding your horse. The tape usually stays in place for one to seven days and is more secure on summer or clipped coats. 


We want to ensure that your horse has the best possible treatment and therefore do insist that the horse has a full physiotherapy treatment before tape is applied. 


Equine Taping is included in the price of a full physiotherapy treatment and can then be reapplied as required for £20.00.
