Absolutely. Not only has it been shown to improve flexibility, but it has also shown to regulate heart rate and improve race times. Here is a study done on Arabian racehorses showing significant improvement during the racing season by incorporating 3 massages per week on the equine athletes. “The changes of the parameters throughout the season suggest that the relaxing massage may be effectively used to make the racehorses more relaxed and calmer. Moreover, the horses from the experimental group had better race performance records.” Adding Massage to your program could literally improve your sport horse’s performance.
