One great thing about our sport is diversity: There are classes that focus on the horse’s talent more than the riders and some were being an excellent equestrian is a must. There are two classes in which the rider’s body position is very important: Western Horsemanship and Hunt Seat Equitation. This article is about advice on how to improve your body position on the horse. Congress Champion Jadasa “Dasi” Jablonowski and her clients Mirja Bassing and Daniela Wagner are talking about their daily routines when it comes to practicing Western Horsemanship and Equitation. Furthermore, physiotherapist Laura Pfeifer will introduce some exercises that are helpful when working on that right body position.
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!
