EQUESTRIAN

IF YOU ARE NOT STRAIGHT I ASK TWO QUESTIONS:

  • ARE YOU GIVING THE SAME SIGNAL ON EACH REIGN TO YOUR HORSE?
  • ARE YOU CAUSING HIM TO BE SORE?

 

 

Is it surprising that this horse falls out on the right reign and struggles with bending evenly left?

Assessments on the horse are critical to see what is going on, however the problem is often deeper-seated than horse issues (saddle/ teeth/ shoeing/ horses preferred leg/ horse injury).  Detailed specific instruction will definitely help improve skill and riding technique, however off the horse work to really look at what is going on with your body is essential.

Passive Assessments followed by

Mobilising exercises and corrective stretching.

Potential referral to Physiotherapy after an assessment

Stabilising exercises

Strengthening work
