Improving the function of the lower back for horse riding

One of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century is the plasticity of the brain; that the lives we live shape th brain we develop. The Franklin Method is at the forefront of practical neuro-plasticity; showing you how to use your brain to improve your body’s function. It teaches you how to harness the transforming power of the mind. It can be applied to improve all of your abilities. It all starts with the knowledge that we have the power to change. If the lumbar biomechanics aren’t functioning optimally this can negatively affect the communication between the rider and hose via the pelvis and legs. In this Franklin Method workshop we are going to employ imagery, movement and self touch to improve the function of the lower back for horse riding.

As we are now a tour de force in world class dressage, every aspiring Charlotte du Jardin or Carl Hester is looking for ways to improve their own position and influence to sit the trot better, or ride that half pass with more expression. Together with Lindsay Wilcox-Reid, Claire will present a live demonstration of dressage test judging. The rider will work through EquipilatesTM exercises off and on horse, then will ride their test again - learn more about what the judge is looking for and how EquipilatesTM can help dressage riders improve their partnership and performance to gain those precious extra marks.
