Cellulitis is somewhat common in the horse world, but it can be frightening for an owner. The leg can be normal one day and double or triple in size overnight. If the leg is infected, the swelling will not resolve with nursing care alone. Immediate, aggressive therapy with intravenous antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications is needed to bring the swelling down and control the infection as quickly as possible. https://tinyurl.com/y6lv622d

The Effect of Your Hands On Your Core Stability

To feel how the action of your hands can affect your core stability, TRY THIS:
• Sit on a stool in front of a desk or table with your feet close to the chair.
Place your hands on the table, imagining that they are glued to the surface.
• Push your hands away from you and feel how your abdominal muscles automatically become engaged and your weight shifts back down onto your seat bones. At the same time your feet are often lighter on the ground.
• Conversely, changing the action of the hands by pulling instead of pushing activates totally different muscles inside the body. If you pull, you can feel more muscles around your shoulders and your feet often want to pull back. To learn how pushing your hands forward can activate your core is an important feeling in dressage, especially during half halts and extensions.
