Riding clinics and workshops, along with classroom seminars are taught by Kasey Reeder on a variety of topics. These can be customized to fit your needs.
Here are a few topics for your consideration:
Rider Biomechanics - The Science Behind The Art of Riding.
The way the rider sits on a horse will have a dramatic effect on its soundness, performance, and development. In this clinic, you will learn exactly how to use your body in order to effectively influence your horse and enhance your body awareness for better communication with your horse.
Correct rider biomechanics is not a different style of riding. It is how your body actually functions, based on physics and science. Don’t panic… Its not rocket science! It is however, a different way of learning. Isaac Newton’s third law of motion basically says ‘for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction’. So basically, biomechanics is not just about position and aids, but goes deeper into ‘cause and effect’ – how your body actually works and interacts with the horse and how the rider sits has a negative or positive influence on the horse.

Our bodywork is comprised of a unique hybrid of manual therapies, with a focus on the study and application of human movement. The goals are to gently manipulate the physical body to realign the body's structure, improve its function/movement, and enhance the mind-body connection.
Bodywork for equestrian riders gives them the opportunity to develop myoskeletal balance, better flexibility, increased range of motion in the joints, added strength in the muscles, and at the same time, relieving any pain the rider may be feeling. The result is improved rider posture and balance - increasing riding ability, efficiency, and effectiveness to improve the horse every stride.
