How long do I have to wait until I can ride my horse after a session?

Light follow-up exercise is a component of equine sports massage. Therefore a 15-20 minute hack, or a gentle trail ride would greatly benefit your horse because exercise following the massage helps in the re-education of muscle fibers to the correct alignment. If you are unable to ride your horse after his session I recommend a 10-15 minute brisk hand-walk within 2 hours of his session. However, horses with injuries that are on stall-rest or that are prohibited from any exercise will still benefit from Equine Body Work.
