WORKSHOPS + LECTURES
Join for a weekend of education, exercise and riding!
Dr. Murray and Physiotherapist Linda Walker lecture on the body mechanics used for riding with supporting exercises to perform off and on the horse. Learn what your “core” is and how to stabilize it, proper breathing mechanics, how to follow your horse with your seat, about hip angle and ankle mobility and much more!
Theory regarding what areas are needed for mobility versus stability under saddle then translates to helping you troubleshoot while riding your horse! The lecture is followed by a private or semi-private, on-horse biomechanics assessment and coaching sessions to aid in your stability and symmetry. Assessments and coaching sessions can be audited by all participants for a collaborative learning approach. Feel as your horse tracks straighter, lengthens their stride, drops their head and sighs relief when they can relax because you're not interfering with their movment.
'Learning how to change my body position and what that involves is such a huge step towards actually changing it!" - Katherine
My favourite thing was () being able to show me how my limitations can impede my horses movement and comfort, and what I can do to improve things for both her and me...so often my coach may tell me to make changes to my riding position, and I may even think I have without realizing I physically cannot. - Margaret
"I'm so much more stable in the saddle." - Tanya
