This Equi-Taping® Method of application, can be useful when horse exhibits sore, tense or tight neck muscles.
This taping can be worn during training to help horses be less rigid, encourage suppleness and flexibility in the neck. Effective in relieving pain associated with stiffness; particularly effective when your horse exhibits tenderness to palpation.

Begin by placing first tape behind horse’s ear with no stretch for the first 3”. Stretch the tape slightly as you follow along the muscle as shown. Lay the last 3” of tape down with no stretch. Apply second piece as shown.
