Biomechanics of Balanced Riding

Biomechanics is the mechanics of how the body moves. Be it human, horse or other animal, we all move in a mechanical way which can be trained and improved.

Our Biomechanics training can help the beginner sit in a stronger safer position, improve a rider's performance, help you get the competitive edge, help prevent injury, or rehabilitate injuries you already have. This all helps you to ride long hours without pain.

Initial lessons are done on bareback. This teaches the rider to pay attention to their body and how it relates to the horse and horse's movements. We examine how the rider's posture and movements affect the way the horse moves. Our technique guarantees you that at a minimum you will be able to walk and trot bareback within 10 lessons. Age is not a concern.

New riders start by learning to catch, tie, groom and tack their horse for future lessons. All riders learn to develop a balanced seat at the walk and advance to the trot as skills and balance develop.

With our unique method of training on bareback, students quickly learn to find their centre of balance without relying on external aids - saddle, reins and stirrups. You develop a soft seat, learn to move with the horse and sit to his back. We emphasize safety, riding confidence, soft hands, a relaxed and centered seat, horse communications and trust building so that you can take your horse anywhere, anytime.

Lessons include some groundwork, arena riding and possibly some trail work. Riding is outdoors so please be prepared for the weather.

Helmets are required so please bring your own helmet and wear appropriate footwear - boots with a low heel. All other horse tack is provided.All students must wear a helmet no exceptions . Call to reserve your lesson time. Come 20 minutes early to tack and warm up your horse. 24 hour cancellation required for lessons or lessons will be charged in full.
