Horse Sense

Daily Racing Form reports that alternative therapies help keep racing horses in optimal shape to reach their potential.

"One thing I emphasize is that they are not a substitute for good veterinary medicine," Ridgway said. "But they should be included. Then you get the best of both worlds."

But such alternative treatment, Hollendorfer warns, won't make a slow horse run fast.

"[Massage] helps alleviate soreness and tightness," she said. "They get a sense of physical and mental well being, a sense of confidence and calm."
