Riders

Welcome to my riders page and mission statement - "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. This may be because the rider does not have the right "tools". These are the goals of physiotherapy to achieve or improve. Unbalanced riders can contribute to equine problems:

Common Rider Faults

  • Stiffness
  • Asymmetry
  • Weak or unstable
  • Fixing
  • Not body position aware

Physiotherapy Solutions to improve

  • Suppleness
  • Symmetry
  • Controlled movement
  • Stability
  • Body position aware.

A rider with the correct tools is much easier to train. A Chartered Physiotherapist may be able to help with this.
