Yoga for Equestrians
Yoga for Equestrians- the fusion of my two greatest passions- horses and yoga!
I have been around horses all of my life- from riding my pony in Pony Club as a small child to
competing extensively in showjumping. Horses are our greatest spiritual guide- and we can learn so much from them.
I currently own two competition horses and a miniature rescue Shetland pony- who are my world!
I have personally found the effects of yoga on my and my horses performance in the arena to be nothing short of outstanding. I want to share this gift with you and let you feel the difference yourself that yoga can make to not only your riding but also to that of your horse- whether you are a happy hacker or a 4* star eventer- yoga will make a difference.
"I loved Yoga for Equestrians and absolutely recommend it. It helped me achieve deep stretches and relieve tension, and made me more body aware. I became more conscious of my alignment as a rider, and of the effects of subtle weight changes. I became more conscious of my position in the saddle and of the weaker areas I need to work on. The breathing techniques are very helpful too.
Thank you so much!"
The benefits of yoga in sport have long been known. The effects of the rider on the performance of the horse are no exception.
Through sport specific yoga, the rider's balance, stability, flexibility and posture is improved.
As a result the horse can move more freely, without restriction, and become more relaxed- key elements for the competition horse.

"A rider with a free and balanced body results in a free-moving and happier horse."
