All Day


This weekend provides you with an amazing opportunity to evaluate your riding position. All humans are asymmetrical, but as riders our asymmetry can have negative affects on our horse. If you have ever wondered if you sit to one side, or if it was you that caused your saddle to slip or prevented your horse from lifting his back then a session with PI (the electronic saddle horse) and rider biomechanics coach, Fran Griffith, will enable you to find the answers.

So, if the answer is yes to any of the above, or even if you just want to reconfirm how totally perfect you are, then come along to the Posture Assessment Clinic on Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th of March at the Rudry Village Hall in Caerphilly and have a ride on PI.

Sensors under PI’s “feet” detect if you are sitting in balance whist carefully positioned cameras capture your posture. You may well be surprised by just how far back (or forward) you are sitting. Take the time to learn what a neutral seat feels like, so that you can use weight aids to the maximum advantage.

Sensors on the reins analyse your contact and whether it is equal with both hands. Check out your half halts, do you release fast enough, and can you release the half halt without throwing the contact away?

See if you can ride a straight line on your seat alone or if you subconsciously hang on to one rein. Then if time permits, try your hand at circles and voltes!

Receive helpful advice and suggestions to help you make any necessary adjustments, and learn about exercises that you can do to help you ride with a neutral pelvis.

In addition to the 45 minute awareness, assessment and instruction session you will also receive a detailed report of your session and an informative e-book on the Seat & Contact.

Sessions are 45 minutes long and cost £60 per person.

Booking is essential.



This event is fully booked.

    • Hi Sharone, I will certainly advise you if we run any further clinics in your area. We are considering one later in the year (possibly September or October).

    • Hi Emily, Im afraid not. However as I had so many extra people want a place, it looks as though we will definitely have another clinic in Caerphilly. Probably in September.

    • Hi Tina

      Thanks for your enquiry. The waiting list for the March clinic is already really long, so I will definitely be holding another Posture Assessment Clinic in the area later this year. I think the chances are it will be in September but we may look for an earlier date. I’ll certainly try and advise you when the date is decided but otherwise it will appear on the Fran Griffith – Rider Biomechanics page on facebook.

  2. Please could you let me know if you have any Rudry cancellations for Sunday..
    Thank you.
    Do you take names for future clinics?
