IMPROVE YOUR SITTING TROT
Would you like to look & feel more elegant & in harmony with your horse in the sitting trot? If so, this is the workshop for you. Using our unique Flexicore & Equipilates™ exercises we will identify functional imbalances which can hamper your alignment, balance and core control in the sitting trot, and equip you with simple but highly effective tools to seriously improve your shock absorption capacity. Develop true poise in the sitting trot (and everything else too of course)!
Tuesday 10th December- 7pm at The Dressage Studio
IMPROVE YOUR LATERALS
Do you find it difficult to maintain your alignment during lateral exercises? Do you understand how to apply weight aids? Do you find shoulder in left easier than right or vice versa? This is the workshop for you. Using specific Flexicore and Equipilates™ exercises we will recap the ABC of Equipilates™ to find and maintain the correct ‘stacking of your boxes’ in movement. We will then improve your ability to move your boxes independently and evenly in and out of neutral, which allows you to give clear & effective aids to your horse when performing lateral movements.
Wednesday 18th December- 7pm at The Dressage Studio
Would you like to Improve your balance, ability to maintain alignment in movement & give the horse clear aids? The exercises used will improve core muscle engagement & joint function; this not only advances your alignment in the saddle (especially in movement) but also your ability to apply clear aids to your horse, for example the half halt. You’ll also work on your ability to activate only the muscles needed & the ability to switch them off immediately.
Each workshop lasts around 1.5 hours and is complimented by worksheets for you to take home and practice. The workshops is followed by tea, coffee & homemade cakes. This gives you the opportunity to discuss what you have learned and for any questions to be answered.
Tuesday 7th January- 7pm @ The Dressage Studio
NEW NEW NEW BIOMECHANICS COURSE!!! REVOLUTIONISE YOUR RIDING with the 10 week Biomechanics of Balance course- Get ahead of the game with this revolutionary new course- it is very different to
any type of Pilates or even Pilates geared for riders course available anywhere at the moment. It incorporates very specific cutting edge exercises detailed in my new book 'Core
Connection for Rider & Horse' to target any problem areas in your body which are biomechanically restricted due to low-grade muscle spasm (which you wouldn't be able to feel, but can cause marked
asymmetry, postural compensations and also stop your core from working properly), nerve and joint mobility restrictions. Typically people start doing core strength programmes, even Pilates, when
these issues have not been addressed in their bodies. This means that either they are simply strengthening an already incorrect pattern, or they just don't gain the benefit that they could do. When
muscle spasm is reduced, nerve and joint mobility improved BEFORE starting core work (as we do in our courses) you can feel major improvements in how your body functions, your symmetry and balance in
the saddle, and perhaps most noticeably, your shock absorption capacity which means you can follow the horse's movement so much better. This all means your riding position improves without you having
to think about it so much- and when you do think about it and use specific awareness techniques, it is even better still!
The course is £85 if prepaid upfront (we require payment to secure the space on booking), or you can pay £45 to secure and a further payment of £45 on or before week 5. There is a maximum of only six in the group on our courses so everyone gets plenty of individual attention.
