Must read for any equestrian!
on March 11, 2013
What a wonderful book packed with information on rider bio-mechanics and exercises to help you strengthen your core and balance. A must read for anyone who rides horses or for the rider who wants to improve their seat and balance! It gives you an in depth understanding as to how easily our bodies can influence our horse's movement and balance, and how some of their behaviors (falling in or out, being crooked, etc.) are actually the result of us being off balance and causing the problem! It really gave me more "rider awareness."
I highly recommend this book over Janice Dulak's book "Pilates for the Dressage Rider". It much more well written and illustrated and the book is better laid out for the reader. A must "addition" for any equestrian's library! Your horse will thank you!
I also recommend, in conjunction with this book, anything from rider biomechanics expert Colleen Kelly.
