At a recent symposium that was held by the International Society of Equine Science researchers presented a lecture on how virtually all riders were asymmetrical when sitting in the saddle and how this asymmetry could negatively effect the horse.
Many of us are conscious of our own body’s crookedness but are not necessarily aware as to just how much our crookedness impacts on our horse or how we can make the necessary changes in our body to improve the situation.
So if you have ever wished your horse could tell you what he thought about your seat, been concerned that you sit more heavily to one side, or wondered if it was you rather than your horse that caused him to hollow his back, come along to the Posture Awareness & Assessment Clinic on Saturday the 11th and Sunday the 12th of January at Pengraig, Nebo, near Aberaeron, SY23 5LE and treat yourself to a 45 minute one-on-one session with PI (the electronic saddle horse) and rider biomechanics coach, Fran Griffith.
This weekend clinic really provides you with an amazing opportunity to evaluate your riding position and to learn what you need to do to adjust and improve your seat.
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 to the side) you are sitting.
This clinic will give you the opportunity to learn what being in true balance really feels like, and how a slight change in the way you normally sit can make an amazing difference to your weight distribution so that you can use subtle weight aids to influence your horse.
Sensors on the reins analyse your contact and whether the contact is even or stronger in one hand. Whilst the half-halt analysis allows you to see how accurate your timing is, whether you release the half halt fast enough and if you can release the half halt without throwing the contact away?
If time permits check what happens to your balance in a rising trot or see if you can ride a straight line on your seat alone or if you subconsciously hang on to one rein.
In addition to the 45 minute awareness, assessment and instruction session you will receive a detailed e-mailed report of your session.
Sessions are 45 minutes long and cost £60 per person.
