F.I.T. Rider Workshop: Equestrian Specific fitness for riders of all levels
Sunday, 17 August 2008, 12:00u â€“ 15:30u
Join us at Eurofit Lanaken for a fitness workshop specific for riders!
Horseback riding is an athletic activity, and many riders spend on the average 2 to 3 hours a week on their horse, and even less on their own bodies!! Letâ€™s explore the strengthening and stretching techniques needed for optimal riding.
Becoming a complete rider means being effective, balanced and strong. Regardless of your level, fitness will help your performance and your communication with your horse. It directly impacts your posture and ability to give effective aids in the saddle. The clinic will be given by top fitness coach John Grady.
These are just some of the skills that you'll learn at the workshop:
* Learn one of the most important exercises to develop core stability for achieving an
independent seat - and it takes just 30 seconds!
* Important exercises for improving coordination.
* How to develop functional flexibility and balance.
* Simple ways to develop strength you can use - train for go, not for show!
* The importance of warming up correctly and how to properly prep yourself to ride.
* Learn better body control for more effective and precise aids in the saddle.
