I have been experimenting with endotapping lately. Endotapping is a technique for inducing relaxation. It is best explained by JP Giacomini at the link above. Anyway, I have been trying it out on Picasso and according to Margaret Manion, massage therapist extraordinaire, it seems to be providing a benefit. He is less tense. That could also be from my massages as well. Either way, I see the change in Picasso when I tap him. He initially resisted as most horses do. If you think about it, he has held his tension for so long, it probably hurts to release it. But now he is really letting go a lot. Drops his head, BIG yawns, small sighs, and an overall body change. Today I got him to be practically asleep!

His eyes were fluttering to stay open…

Now trying to experiment with tapping in motion to increase his range of motion….
