Review Of Applied Posture Riding
Pilates and Posture Training Specific for Horse Riders
This Applied Posture Riding program is essential for all horse riders. It has been created by a professional and is the easiest on the net to follow. It is interesting to know horse riders spend so much money on riding lessons for the horse, but few spend any money on trying to learn about themselves as riders.
Applied Posture Riding is a complete exercise program packaged in written and DVD form. The Applied Posture Riding program provides education, information to the horse rider to train the horse riding muscles for horse riding. It is interesting to note the author is an elite horse rider and also has a Masters in Physiotherapy.
Annette Willson is the author of this detailed Applied Posture Riding program and more to note she is also an experienced Pilates Educator. Annette has worked as a Physiotherapist for 25years and been an event rider for many more. The combination of her talents as a horse rider and her expertise from being a Physiotherapist give this program credentials over so many other exercise programs. The key to the horse riding is learning core stability so much time in this Applied Posture Riding program focuses on core stability or otherwise known as Pilates.
The Applied Posture Riding program follows a basic path explaining in explicit detail how to find, test, train and use the Transverse Abdominal muscles. Once this has been achieved the program moves onto to explain about all the horse riding muscles used specifically for horse riding. The package has bonus files in pdf format for the reader to absorb more proven information about controlling lower back pain and a file on how to use your back properly. There is a file on braces specific for horse riders and the use of them. The file on back pain protection is especially good because Annette herself is a back pain sufferer. A detailed manual called “Pure Pilates” is also a special unique feature of this package.
After downloading the files they are printable and accessible. The information is clear, precise and backed up with full colour photos and graphics. It is easy step by step instructions and comes with a guarantee.
There are 10 components to this detailed Applied Posture Riding package. The DVD is in two parts. The photo albums of all the exercises come as a bonus download as well. DVD Part 1 is 1 ½ hours long providing education on the rider’s posture and all the horse riding muscles. The program explains how the muscles function when in the saddle and how to find test and train them. The primary target for training is on deep core stability so there is an extended session on how to use the deep abdominal muscle. The explanation of how to use the breathing to gain deep core function is totally unique to this author. No one else has explained it in the simple detail Annette has. The Horse Riding Posture unlike many sports requires symmetry from both sides of the body, so the teaching includes training left and right sides of the body using movement patterns unique for riding.
DVD part 2 demonstrates to the rider how to achieve a good lower leg position to stabilise the lower leg first. The exercises are shown in the saddle using a rider who is following the Applied Posture Riding program. The DVD explains how to use the core muscles and establish balance through the lower leg, then the seat and how to never balance using the hands.
Of all programs on the net, this Applied Posture Riding is the easiest and most detailed. It is backed up with professional qualifications the author holds. I certainly recommend the Applied Posture Riding program to any Horse Rider. If you follow it you will feel better, ride better and be more confident.
