Soften Your Ride With Help From A Spring
Jul 31, 2019 - Jul 31, 2019

Gain awareness of your body's response to the movement and/or actions of your horse. An equestrian workshop for riders and movement enthusiasts of all levels and disciplines.

Using the Wunda Chair in the Pilates studio, the springs create force coming up from the ground much like the bounce from the footfalls of your horse. In this workshop we’ll use the “Chair” to reveal held tension that interrupts the idea of distribution or absorption of the forces coming up from below. We’ll explore pelvis position and how it becomes the distribution center sending the bounce of the horse's gait through the whole body. You’ll find a softness in your back improving your sitting trot, half halts and downward transitions, you’ll feel more secure jumping, and respond better to spooking, bolting, bucking etc. Letting go of held tension carries over to your post ride experience reducing back pain and soreness.
