Horse & Rider
Horses do not naturally carry weight on their back and therefore great time and care is needed to develop and strengthen the muscles necessary for the horse to become balanced and be able to support and carry the rider.
A rider that is not balanced can cause an uneven weight distribution over the horse's spine resulting in pain and lameness issues for the horse. Poor, ill-fitting saddles and unnatural hoof mechanics can also lead to back, pelvic and shoulder problems and changes in behaviour.
Core stability and flexibility is essential for balanced riding. Even shoulders and symmetrical pelvic motion creates balance and understanding for the horse. All motion is energy and flows from horse to rider and rider to horse. Any interference and change to this flow affects your unique connection and performance.
