Horserockers observed with the thermographical eye

thermography

We asked ourselves a not so simple question: What does rocker training do to the musculoskeletal system of our horses? Where and when do get what specific effects? How crucial is the rocking technique? How does the rocker type effect the training?

Beke Lichtenberg of www.pferdethermografie-nord.de shot thermographical pictures our five ponies first with ‘cold’ muscles and then after a 15 minute training session on the rockers. Frieda took her turn on the 1500 mm whole-body rocker, Aron and Wolfgang on the 125 mm rocker, Amadeus on the elliptical rotary table and Freya on the 3000 mm stainless steel rocker. We are very excited about the results of this great diagnostic method and certainly would like to continue the research.
