Last night Jonny Connop and I were part of a great workshop at the Washington RDA centre, where we worked on improving the riders posture, proprioception, stability, mobility, strength and endurance. All areas which can help the horse rider improve their performance on the horse, but also reduce their risk of injury to themselves and their horses. Following on from this we will be running further screening programs for individual riders and a weekly core stability class at the riding centre.
There are 4 more evening talks planned; see http://www.washingtonridingcentre.co.uk/page14.htm for more details. The next is on horse psychology.
