Pilates is an invigorating and proven body conditioning method which helps to strengthen the core muscles used in riding, whilst simultaneously restoring the body’s balance.
Dressage riders achieve better harmony with their horse as a tweak of a muscle by the rider can convey a subtle, but effective message to the horse. Eventers or show jumpers can, after a few short weeks, improve their balance over a fence, becoming more effective in their seat and are at an advantage and more tuned in to their horse, should it decide not to go where intended! Pilates is an essential tool for improved, more effective and ultimately safer riding.
