Annette Willson Physiotherapist Specialist Posture Riding Coach

Are you having trouble finding a coach to train your Posture?Add heading 1

Have you been injured or had a baby and find riding is not the same?

Or do you just need some expert training in and out of the saddle to be a better rider?

Most riders know they have poor balance, tip forward at the canter or can't keep their lower leg still. The sitting trot is a nightmare for many and the riding instructions such as "sit up straight", "stop bouncing" "keeping your leg still" are common and repeated. The cycle of many hours in the saddle and many dollars seems to continue.

My program Applied Posture Riding is the only program that combines Physiotherapy knowledge of muscle biomechanics with core function, injury management, and specialist Rider Biomechanics.

I hear this comment all the time. "I have spent $$$$ on lessons and nobody has picked this up before Why?

Your instructor does not have the education in training your posture that is why.

I do!  I am a Physiotherapist, I rode at an elite level, I have been injured and recovered and I have been where you are now. It was my combined knowledge of riding and Physiotherapy that gave me the skills to train myself and now I can train you to be the best rider you want to be.

My training sets you up to start at a new starting point. From there you will progress in a step by step process. It won't happen overnight but it will happen!

The key to the program is my specialized core training and Rider Specific Movement Patterns.

  • You will learn HOW to use your core on demand.
  • You will learn HOW to apply the correct aids symmetrically and effectively.
  • You will achieve a safe effective strong balanced riding posture.
  • You will know what you are doing and apply the skills in the saddle.
  • You will achieve your ambition as a rider and be a better trainer to your horse.

 Online Mentoring Program.

After training in Rider Biomechanics a lady said: "I don't know how I rode without this knowledge? I did Pilates but I could not figure out how to use it riding".

Pilates has become popular in the equestrian world. However, Pilates does not teach you how to transfer your core strength into use in the saddle. Pilates teaches "Neutral Spine" only. Riders need to have the core strength in "Non-Neutral Spine" as well.

Riding Instructors can teach you "what the correct riding posture is" but they can not teach you How To use Your Core.

Personal Trainers and exercise classes do not target the riding muscles, and in some cases, the routines riders are following can cause more harm than good.

Pain is a signal, not a challenge!

Back pain is a major feature for riders and the core is directly affected when a rider is in pain.The best Horse Riding exercises I have ever done 1
