Biomechanics for horse riders

Biomechanics for SPORT

Calling all riders …. We spend money on Chiropractics for our horse and work in the arena to help him strengthen his posture … but do we attend to our own posture?

Riding cogs

There are various places we can go and do Pilates and sit on mechanical horses all of which will help but if we have a proper analysis and assessment and measure up how even we are from side to side we will see exactly what we need to work on. Different muscle tensions from side to side will cause a crooked posture.

Read this snippet from an article below ….
….”This cog dynamic is why, of the two main parts that connect between horse and rider – the seat and the horse’s back, the rider’s seat must engage in the flow of movement under and forwards and round (red arrow in the diagram), and the horse’s back corresponds in an over and forwards stretch (blue arrow). This forwards stretching in both horse and rider is made possible only by the right postural support from the core muscles. ”
