Kinesiology taping on human athletes is all the rage: widely used by physical therapists, chiropractors, and personal trainers, we see it on Olympians, runners, basketball players-on amateurs and professionals. The idea behind taping is that it provides incredible support and stabilisation of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously stretching and flexing like a 'second skin' to allow full range of motion. It can also activate or relax muscles, depending on its application. Our equine athletes can benefit hugely from taping techniques, and this terrific guidebook provides the ultimate reference for understanding both the uses of kinesiology tape and its numerous applications. With hundreds of colour photographs and step-by-step instructions for the do-it-yourselfer, equine physiotherapist Katja Bredlau-Morich explains the following forms of kinesiology taping: Muscle * Lymphatic * Scar * Fascia * Space * Hematoma * Stabilization * Tendon * Cross In addition, numerous case studies demonstrate how taping can change your horse's life, keeping him pain-free and performing his best for years to come.

As soon as my own horse was walking around the arena sporting colorful stripes, people started asking me about kinesiology taping, and I started explaining how it worked and how to do it. Interest in kinesiology taping is huge. -- Katja Bredlau-Morich The idea behind kinesiology taping is to explain how taping can provide incredible support and stabilisation of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously stretching and flexing like a 'second skin' to allow full range of motion. Taping can also activate or relax muscles, depending on its application. Katja Bredlau-Morich's book focuses on how taping can be used as a part of any equine health care program. The brilliant photographs included in the book demonstrate how and where to apply the tape to achieve the best results. Katja Bredlau-Morich's extensive background in kinesiology taping make Kinesiology Taping for Horses a rich and comprehensive read. Not only is she an expert in the anatomy and biomechanics of horses, but she writes in a way that anyone can easily understand how to adopt her taping techniques. Kinesiology Taping for Horses is written clearly yet is still rich in detail; I read it cover-to-cover in a single sitting and have a new respect for kinesiology taping without feeling bogged down by minutae. A comprehensive guide to this unique modality.... A book like this needs plenty of good photos to illustrate the techniques, and the author delivers.
