What is the EQUI-X Method?

The EQUI-X Method includes various exercises which are used systematically to strengthen horses in the correct way and condition them properly for ridden work or a return to work after injury.
The EQUI-X Method can be used during rehabilitation after injury or can be integrated into your horse’s training programme to reduce the chances of injury and improve performance.

What Makes the EQUI-X Method Different?

The strength and conditioning exercises are relatively easy to carry out. Many people are know using them in rehabilitation or to help strengthen their horses.
But what is missing… What is missing is a method which helps to make decisions about what exercises to use and how to progress them in a particular way for the individual horse and circumstance.
It’s very important that a horse (or pony) is evaluated along the way, identifying their individual weaknesses and inaccuracies.
When it comes to training movement, whether in daily schooling or after injury, there is no one size fits all set if exercises. The exercises need to be carried out under expert supervision so they they improve your horse and not worsen their condition.
The EQUI-X Method comprises of a multitude of frameworks and exercises so that we can guide your horse through his own strength progression journey, with the support of INDIBA Radiofrequency where necessary.

How Does the EQUI-X Strength & Conditioning Method Work?

Your EQUI-X Strength and Conditioning Veterinary Physiotherapist will carry out various assessments with your horse to identify areas of weakness and any movement irregularities. From there, your EQUI-X Veterinary Physiotherapist will then develop a tailored plan specifically for your horse.
Depending on your individual needs, you will have weekly/bi-weekly sessions with your EQUI-X Veterinary Physiotherapist for 6-12 weeks or more, where re-evaluations will be carried out and the next stage of the plan is developed.
Between sessions - The work is DOWN TO YOU!
