Are you or your horse crooked?

Having a problem riding a straight line?

Bringing on a youngster?

Do you feel any tightness or aching before, during or after riding?

We can help!

Horses can cause rider problems and vice versa, so affecting the harmony and ease of movement. We will help you increase awareness of your body biomechanics and the effect it has on the rider/horse relationship.

What do we do?

We take a full history from you and then assess your functional biomechanics. It may be necessary to realign you using joint manipulation / mobilisation, soft tissue massage, stretches etc.

We then give you an individual exercise programme to maintain correct alignment focussing on strengthening weak core muscles, stretching tight muscles and strengthening weak muscles. Postural problems are addressed and muscle imbalances corrected in order to promote stability, flexibility and core strength.

Our aims

PhysioNeeds EquestrianBy reducing your pain/discomfort we encourage relaxation, balance and ease of movement. This will help you correct your horses imbalances in comfort. Your improved core stability will help you use your seat better to produce a more flowing movement adding a softness and improved cadence to his paces by reducing tightness so increasing muscle tone.

The classic scales of training for the horse are born in mind when we advise the rider : these are Rhythm, Suppleness, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness, Collection. These are the building blocks for the horse, they need good foundations to progress just as the rider does – that foundation is core stability.
