Is your horse giving you a hint as to where he needs you to massage?
Ever thought your horse was trying to tell you something?
If you scratch him he may move to where he really wants that scratch.
If you miss this hint, and your horse rolls in dirt or sand, watch carefully. You may catch where his trying to put pressure himself.
If you are lucky, when he stands up, the sand or dirt may have stuck to a few spots.
Note this places before he shakes the dirt off.
This is where he was trying to put pressure himself and where you should next look with your fingers when you give him a rub or groom him.
