Synopsis: The book outlines the connections within - the different factors affecting the horse/rider partnership (e.g. rider biomechanics, horse posture and proprioception, saddle balance, mental focus, how horses learn). Lindsay looks at how we can improve our own biomechanics, explains dysfunction patterns in the rider's body, and offers cutting-edge anti-spasm and nerve-mobility exercises to improve the rider's shock-absorption capacity. A chapter on fluidity and flow provides a unique standing exercise series to mobilise postural lines and unwind stuck patterns. There is an 8-week conditioning programme of short workouts, focussing on balancing the hip muscles and spinal mobility; and for the horse, a selection of highly effective exercises to improve his posture, carriage and muscle recruitment. There are tricks and tips to reduce training trials and tribulations, including how to sit even the biggest-moving horse's trot. She even explains how to teach your horse a language of aids for clear communication between horse and rider. The mind/body connection is also examined, using Emotional Freedom Technique to reduce performance anxiety and develop the skills of mental rehearsal - absolutely vital for creating and stimulating neural pathways for learning dressage tests, jumping a confident show jumping round or even just hacking without fear affecting performance.

Product Description: This long-awaited follow up to Pilates for Riders offers revolutionary rider performance techniques that gain results and are, quite simply, remarkable. The cutting-edge anti-spasm and mobilization exercises, unique standing series, sitting trot workout, and releasing work for tired, achy muscles, along with strength and conditioning in all the right places, combine to provide a program that can deliver extraordinary benefits in just 10 minutes per day. The horse's postural patterns and asymmetries are also explored, with practical, logical proprioceptive training ideas to incorporate into groundwork, in-hand, and ridden schooling sessions.

Whether you are a weekend hacking enthusiast, have international competition aspirations, or simply want to ride better, this book brings you a whole new series of effective and ethical tools to use with your horse.
