Recovery of horse riders using an environmentally friendly recoverysystem
Horses and ponies are used for a variety of purposes around the world; they use them for manythings in work and pleasure in sports such as endurance events, show jumping, horse racing-but probably not these two fat little thingsThese are probably kept because they are good for someone’s emotional development-they arealmost certainly not going to contribute to someone’s muscle soreness from riding themMuscle soreness is a problem for the novice rider whose leg muscles have not developedsufficiently to give the stability needed to ride properly, and also for the endurance ridercompeting in multi-day events whose muscles are fatiguedThey would pretty well be in much the same situation as my ultra marathon runners who havebeen running 3 days or moreTo use invasive work as normally used on already stressed muscles is going to put them indanger of being overloaded with too much tension being placed on the muscle insertions andmuscle fibers-and result in damage that may take time to recover fromSubjecting them to extra stresses, the muscles are taut like the strings on a guitar or violin, if they have too much tension placed on them, they can snap and they have to be replaced-unfortunately it is not so easy to replace the muscles-so better not to place them ‘at risk’ byusing invasive techniques to achieve recovery

Recovery
Muscles that are recovering do not need working
on
-they need working
with
-which opens up arange of options not available before that can be used to assist in recovery without putting themuscles at risk of injuryUltra athletes suffer from sore feet, sore legs, swollen ankles, stiffness, wasted muscles, musclecramps, tiredness, mental fatigue, restless legs, sore skin, night pains, muscle spasm, musclewastage, swollen ankles, hyperthermia, hypothermia, temper tantrums, vomiting, foodsensitivity, allergies, rashes, loss of judgement-and that is the good partNo matter how much someone trains and practises, or how talented they are, this can bedetrimentally affected if recovery is not quickly and efficiently achievedCompounding soreness and stiffness can create an ongoing problem to young growing bonesand muscles-they do not need these as they can interfere with coordination between horse andriderTo demonstrate how stiffness and fatigue can compound, we can visit a 24-hour relay eventwhere the young athlete runs for 15 minutes, has 5 hours break and goes back for another 15minute leg-in all they do 4 periods on the track in the 24 hours.15 minutes of running with five hours of recovery should be enough time, yet each leg of therelay was more difficult than the last time they went on the track because the muscle were soreand stiffened upWhen the young athletes first started to come in for help with recovery, I was very surprised (Iwas working on adults and thought is strange that they were having problems after such a shorttime on the track) but treated them as I would the older runners and walkers-but I found thattheir muscles were tighterFortunately the World Run Recovery System accommodated their needs to address sorenessand stiffness problemsThese are 2 people who have just been running for 3 days around a running track in allweathers and they have stiff legs after a few minutes of resting
