Tex had been struggling to relax his right hind leg when doing the Masterson Method hind end release. He could only relax to a certain point and then would slam his foot back to the ground. With his hind leg being so heavy to hold up (he is 17hh tall!) it was time to get creative. I stacked two high density foam blocks on the ground where I wanted him to rest his foot and it worked like a charm. He relaxed his leg in that position for quite some time and got a nice release. Horses can do yoga too!
