Ridden Assessments

Tuesday 15th November 2016

"Chartered Physiotherapy for riders and horses aims to improve performance and well being for the equine-human partnership and helps to treat problems, long and short term for both".

Sometimes, no matter how good your instructor or horse is, progress can slow or stop in relation to training goals. In my ridden assessments, I look at the rider both on the horse as well as on the ground and put together tailor-made exercises which the rider can work on both on their own and when riding.

My ridden assessment sessions are a really effective way to identify and work on the riders weaknesses and strengths, to promote symmetry, suppleness, stability, controlled movement and overall body position awareness.
