The course goes into loads of detail around what makes for good rider biomechanics and how it can help you, your horse and your overall performance. By the end of the course, you'll see exactly how important rider biomechanics are not only to yours and your horse's health, but your scores too!
SESSION 1 : INTRODUCTION TO RIDER BIOMECHANICS
In this session, we'll cover an introduction to the subject as well as go through the four key areas which contribute to good rider biomechanics and how we can achieve them.
SESSION 2 : RIDER POSITION & IT'S EFFECT ON THE HORSE
In this session, we'll be looking at what the ideal rider position should be and how we can achieve it as well as some exercises to test your own position.
We'll also explore how your position effects the horse in both positive and negative ways
SESSION 3 : FLEXION, BEND, STRAIGHTNESS AND TURNING
We'll be learning about the differences between Flexion and Bend and how to use (and not to use) them to achieve better movement from your horse.
We'll also talk about true straightness, how to achieve it and some techniques to stay on that centre line!
Finally we'll go through 9 different ways of turning the horse and the pros and cons of each way.
SESSION 4 : ENGAGEMENT, TRANSITIONS & LATERAL WORK
