Usually, riders in Europe use the winter to teach their horses new events, work on their stamina and prepare them for the next season. Somehow, by doing that, they tend to forget about their own fitness. But hey, no problem: The Showlife is here to help you out. Within the upcoming weeks, we will present different exercises that will turn into a great workout if you combine them. The good thing about it: Each exercise is presented by one physiotherapist who is an equestrian as well.
It’s something we all have said to non-equestrians: Riding is a sport! Yes, it is and that also means that being fit and throwing in a work-out from time to time is essential in order to be able to control your body when riding. However, many equestrians are not sure what kind of exercises can be helpful in order to improve their body position. Laura Pfeifer and Jacqueline Korioth are both award-winning equestrians and physiotherapists and know just the right workout for anyone who wants to get fit for this season. Thank you for the great tips, girls!
