Pilates is great to help horse riders as it builds core stability, also improving alignment and mobility, and helps develop a greater awareness and control over your body posture, this is incredibly useful in improving your riding position.
In addition, improved concentration and coordinating movements with breathing are great tools to help develop your horse riding technique.
The movements build stability and mobilise the muscles used in yard work, helping you move in good alignment, strengthening core muscles while easing out tension, helping you keep your spine protected while you work.
