6 DIFFERENT MASSAGE HEADS
For optimal treatment.
"THE FORK HEAD"
The fork glides perfectly along the hamstring, the buttocks, the neck on both sides, and if your horse enjoys the feeling, along the entire spine to the tail. This attachment enables deep penetration into particularly tight and tender areas and is a very practical tool for both humans and horses.
"THE BALL HEAD"
This soft foam shaped ball is a great accessory for beginners or when using your Horse Gun Pro for the first time. Use this accessory to acclimate your horse to the repetitive feel of the gun. Use it to carefully explore your horse's body, finding the areas he/she finds relaxing and those he/she would rather you leave alone.
"THE CYLINDER HEAD"
This advanced massage head is excellent for massaging trigger and stress points on the horse. You can use it to focus on specific points and known stress areas. It works great for removing muscle knots. Avoid bony areas with this mount, stick to areas that are muscle dense and areas of tension, tightness or pain.
"THE MUSHROOM HEAD"
Designed to break down tissue in muscle-dense areas of the body such as the rear, neck, thighs and buttocks. This accessory is optimal if you want to provide treatment intended for relaxation and therapeutic purposes, and does not require deep tissue relief and knot removal.
"THE DAMPENER HEAD"
This soft massage head is ideal for treatment around joints or other areas close to bony parts, it glides smoothly over these difficult to treat areas and gives the perfect massage. This accessory is perfect for relaxation purposes and provides a smooth, light massage, giving your horse a very comfortable treatment.
"THE FINESSE HEAD"
A combination of the mushroom and the dampener head. Provides an ultimate relaxing treatment. Works to both massage larger muscles but also smaller muscles in more bony areas as this soft head gives a more gentle massage.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDANCE
Always start on a low setting, let your horse get used to the feeling.
Take your time. Start slowly and watch the signals your horse gives. You will quickly understand what your horse likes. The aim is always to get the horse to relax first, before moving on to deeper massage, so-called therapeutic use.
MASSAGE FOR RELAXATION PURPOSES
For relaxation purposes, use slow speed, stick to large muscles, find your horse's favorite areas and work from there.
The ball, damper and mushroom are perfect massage heads to give your horse a relaxing and soothing sensation.
MASSAGE FOR THERAPEUTIC PURPOSES
Once your horse is relaxed and used to the stroke movement, you can start using higher speed and massage heads that target deep tissue.
Especially the cylinder and fork head are effective for deep tissue relief because they penetrate deeper into the muscle.
MASSAGE THE NECK
Start at the neck and go with a steady pressure down towards the horse's shoulders. Then follow the shoulder blade down in a triangle pattern.
MASSAGE THE BACK
Start at the horse's withers and move with even pressure slowly towards the horse's hindquarters.
MASSAGE THE SHOULDERS
Start at the top of the shoulder to the bottom and feel free to divide the shoulder into three parts.
MASSAGE THE BUTTOCKS
Work in an up and down motion with firm pressure. Above all, focus on massage from the top of the back to the bottom.
MASSAGE THE HAMSTRINGS
Start from the top of the tail along the back. Feel how sensitive your horse is in this area, then use a back and forth motion if your horse accepts it.
