Polo professionals, like most equine competitors, really respect and value their horses, both as companions and competitors. Their horses have short periods of very intense activities, and as you can imagine, they will have the usual aches and pains that all athletes get.
We are now treating our first professional Polo Players horse, the first in what we suspect will be many. What we found interesting is how laid back and calm this horse was when compared to a thoroughbred. Yes, we know that all race horses aren't tempermental and prickly, but we have met a few. And then some.
We're really looking forward to becoming a part of the wellness programs for the polo players horses. Cytowave is tailor made for the type of nagging injuries that these horses get, and once the polo crowd learns how well we work, the cat will be out of the proverbial bag! We should probably question why the cat was in a bag in the first place, but we'll save that for another post.
We'll keep you updated on how successful the treatments are as we get information. Till then, have an awesome and safe holiday break everyone!
Marcus continues his healing, storming back to activity after more than 8 months of being lame. From multiple and unidentified issues. Heather sent us the video below which shows him exercising and jumping - something that he has only done a few times prior to becoming lame. He looks like he's getting the hang of it!
