Horse and Rider Assessments

Most riders are aware that they affect the way their horse goes, but few do anything about it. Have you ever noticed that your horse struggles to bend on a particular rein, or take up a certain canter lead? Or perhaps you are always being given the same feedback from your riding instructor?

Your bodies’ stiff bits and weak bits can either cause, or encourage these kinds of issues. A joint horse and rider body condition assessment can highlight and treat both your problem areas in order to allow you to work more in harmony with each other.

Pilates for Horse Riders

Pilates is a great way to improve your core stability, posture and flexibility. Why not get a group together and organise either a one-off taster or 6 week course of Pilates for horse riders? Alternatively you can have individually tailored one to one sessions. All that is required is some floor space and a mat to lie on!

All human physiotherapy assessments can either take place at your home or at another place more convenient to you. Please feel free to call or email to discuss your preferences and get a quote.
