"Magni was started slowly by a gentle dressage trainer, seen by numerous professional saddle fitters, & otherwise given the best start we could give him in life, but his back never put on the muscle we expected. At only 12 years old, fit from regular riding, he was beginning to look as though he might develop a serious sway back. His gaits were stiff, & he had trouble tölting.
Jess figured out the puzzle. She took him through exercises that got him using his back correctly for the first time in his life, His neck got longer, his gaits got softer, & he began to volunteer tölt. His back seemed to lift, & the gap behind his shoulders started to fill in. I have never seen training so obviously & effectively make a horse more comfortable. I wish Magni had been in this sort of training all his life."
