Horse Riding Posture
The Horse-Riding Posture is taken for granted by many riders. The older we get the more difficult it is to change habits and movement patterns. Rider Biomechanics is becoming a popular topic and riders are seeking programs to train their riding muscles.
The horse riding posture requires symmetry, strength, length and endurance in all muscles. The key muscles are the core muscles. Pilates will strengthen the core muscles but not educate you how to use your core in the saddle. This is where my articles and my program will teach you how to train yourself correctly and forever to ride the best you can.
As a Physiotherapist, I have knowledge in the posture and biomechanics of the human body. My experience as an elite rider gives me skill and knowledge in riding. I have also suffered my own injuries and understand the process of rehabilitation. I understand "No Pain No Gain" is not always the best advice. It is more important to understand why you have pain and HOW TO manage it as a horse rider.
The horse riding posture is not a complicated position but it is much more complicated to train a posture on a moving animal than in a static, grounded position. Balance is the key and How To Balance can be learned. This is what I do and this is what I love.
