Hello! Thank you for your interest in our Rider Biomechanics Clinic.
This clinic is open to riders of all levels and disciplines to help improve the riders position, to improve the horse’s way of going.
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.
Once you start to feel what is actually going on in your body, rather than what you think is happening, you can make significant improvements as a rider and so positively influence your horse. It is important to understand that everyone comes to riding from a different starting point and therefore generic corrections such as sit up, lift your chest, heels down can have very negative effects on each individual, where as the biomechanics approach peels through the layers of the onion to get to the real root of the problem.
Applying Rider Biomechanics, you will learn:
