Wouldn’t you love to improve your riding skills? It is as easy as improving your core muscles. Pilates will help you learn how to use the arms and legs without tightening the hip ﬂexors. Tightening of the hip ﬂexors will cause your pelvis to pull forward out of neutral position and in consequence causes a curve in the lower back forcing your legs forward and out of the correct “ear-shoulder-hip-heel alignment”.
We will focus on improving your body awareness and control. Not only will this improve your riding but it will enhance your everyday life.
We help riders improve their seat by strengthening the core, improving balance, pelvic and shoulder stability and concentrating on alignment.
We will identify the areas of muscle weakness and imbalance and focus on the areas that need improvement, creating speciﬁc pilates exercises to improve your athletic performance.
To achieve a strong but ﬂexible upright seat in the saddle and keep the legs still through all paces you need to use the deep core muscles. If you are a rider, you know riding requires control, strength, and symmetry from both sides of the body. Control, independent movements, and strength will all improve with good core stability.
Many riders suffer from back and neck pain, and this is a huge inhibitor in training the transverse abdominal muscles; postural muscles that runs transversely around the belly and its main function is to stabilize the spinal joints and ﬂatten the tummy; stiffness will cause pain and hence, weakening the core. Having a regular pilates routine can bring dynamic changes and even eliminate all your back and neck afﬂictions. You probably spend hours conditioning and perfecting your horse, what about conditioning and perfecting your own body? The truth is if you are not in good shape it will show in your riding ability. Pilates is a perfect exercise program for riders who want to feel well, ride well and enjoy a better life. Donʼt wait any longer.
