What Is The "Applied Posture Riding" Program? 

Untitled design 3

This is a complete mentoring program for horse riders. Available online in the membership site or on a USB stick for home viewing.

You cannot fix your posture problems in the saddle.

You need to, first, test for strength, length, and flexibility, you then need to train to reset your posture for riding and then start the process of transferring your new riding skills to the saddle. 

It has been proven that unmounted, correct rider specific Movement Patterns will train you to be a better rider.  Once your posture has been reset you can apply this in the saddle.

A balanced riding posture that has symmetry, core strength and independent isolation skills, is the goal every rider is targeting. Better skills allow you and your horse to your enjoy riding. The fighting will stop and the fun will begin.

You need a starting point, this requires self-testing and understanding your own posture problems. Once you have your problems sorted you can start your training program. By training your core and fixing your muscle imbalances out of the saddle you will correct your own little habitual muscle problems.

Pilates will only train your core in "neutral spine" Riders need the skill and strength to use their core in "non-neutral spine".

By training your core and fixing your muscle imbalances out of the saddle you will correct your own little habitual muscle problems.

Every Rider has Muscle Imbalances. What are yours?

Once you address them:

  • you will stop confusing your horse and block him with your asymmetry's 
  • you will be able to sit upright and engage your seat effectively
  • you will be able to apply your lower leg with consistent correct aids
  • you will stop using the reins for balance and allow your horse to move forward
  • jumping will become fun and safe as you stay with your horse over fences 
Slumped and Upright Standing Posture

The Applied Posture Riding Program will show how to identify your own muscle imbalances, your own weak areas, your own areas of stiffness and your own habits.

Yes, we all have habits to be reset. Injury has a huge effect on your riding as does having a baby or just having a break from riding to live your life.

Any asymmetry in your Posture will affect your riding.

A dropped shoulder, twisted hips, a dominant hand, all affect your riding.

Dressage is the Basic Training For All Horses.

  • Do you know if you have a weak core?  Yes! Do you know how to test it? No !
  • Do you suffer from lower back pain and been told to quit riding? Yes !
  • Do you know how to train yourself for riding? No !

Correct Testing of all your muscles and then applying the correct movement patterns is what you need. Many riders are doing floor exercises and attending classes and still not changing their riding! Why ? 

  • Exercises are not enough!
  • You need to have a starting point
  • You need to know your own  muscle imbalances
  • You need to know your own areas of weakness and stiffness
  • You need to know just how dominant or one-sided you are with your posturebefore and after APR
  • You will have habits and resting postures that affect your riding.

Do you know what they are?.
