As horse riders we know that a huge emphasis is placed on our body’s alignment. From the moment we have our first riding lesson we will have been told to sit up tall, pull our shoulders back and balance on our seat bones. But what is alignment and why is it so important for our riding? This class focuses on some Pilates exercises that can help achieve better alignment.

It is well documented that the way a horse rider positions their limbs (alignment) and how stable and supple they are influences the way their horse is able to move (rider biomechanics). The more strong and stable, yet supple the rider is, the better they are able to positively influence their horse.

In this short video I show how to find postural alignment and show some simple exercises to help correct some asymmetries
