Add PROSIX to Improve the Outcome of any Rehabilitation,

Reconditioning or Training Program!


The PROSIX can be very useful when bringing a horse back from injury or disease.  Each case would need to be reviewed by your horse’s caregiver and approval given to begin the use of the PROSIX.

One common disease that the PROSIX has been very successful with is for horses recovering from EPM.  Once the green light has been given by your veterinarian to begin the process of rehabilitation, begin using the PROSIX as it is very productive without the use of tack or a rider.  The PROSIX can be put on your horse with supervised turnout and he can than self-limit his own exercise routine and can rest when fatigued.  Immediately PROSIX will connect the EPM horse from front to back.  The EPM horse has generally lost some motor control of his hind and the neuron connection to those muscles has been significantly diminished.  One of the major benefits of the PROSIX is to enhance proprioception.  The design of the PROSIX further “holds the horse together” and gives him the confidence he needs to mentally start his recovery.  The PROSIX will make him pick himself upright, stride underneath his belly, pick his feet up higher and lift his belly to begin building core strength.  All the above benefits are what are needed on his road to recovery.

Most injuries mean that a horse hasn’t been utilizing 100% of some part of his body.  An injury usually results in compensatory posture and movement.  Once a horse has healed from their specific injury, the compensatory action is likely to continue as it has now been programmed into the horse’s muscle memory.  So once again the process is to re-educate the muscle and the way in which weight is distributed throughout the body.  PROSIX will once again help your horse carry himself more upright and balanced from the fact that he is connected from front-to-back and side-to-side.  The PROSIX encourages the horse to step underneath the belly and to move each limb in cadence and rhythm with one another.  The PROSIX will help to override the previously programmed compensatory movement and bring uniformity to all four limbs and muscle symmetry.  The PROSIX can be used on a lunge line or in supervised turnout when given the ok by a veterinarian so the horse is at a better position to carry a rider at a later date.
