Come and join our Equistable™ Rider Balance Clinic which focuses on the rider’s position and posture as well as improving core engagement. Learn how to create a more balanced seat and a better connection with your horse. A rider’s altered biomechanics can cause performance issues in their horse whether you are a happy hacker or aiming to be the next Charlotte Dujardin. Positional problems are hugely frustrating for rider, trainer and horse. Megan is a Chartered Physiotherapist, Equipilates™ Biomechanics Trainer, and has completed Testt (Thomas Equestrian Symmetry Types and Tests) training with world renowned Andy Thomas of Event Physio. She can provide an insight into why you adopt a certain position and provide exercises to help you biomechanically more effective. This session is aimed at assessing your position on your horse and using a variety of techniques to improve your symmetry, suppleness or strength.
