This long-awaited follow up to Pilates for Riders outlines all the different factors affecting the horse/rider partnership—rider biomechanics, horse posture and proprioception, saddle balance, mental focus, how horses learn. The cutting-edge anti-spasm and mobility exercises, unique standing series, sitting trot workout, and conditioning in all the right places combine to provide a program that can deliver extraordinary benefits to both horse and rider. There are tricks and tips to reduce training trials and tribulations, including how to teach your horse a language of aids for clear communication. The mind/body connection is also examined, with techniques to reduce performance anxiety and develop the skills of mental rehearsal. Whether you are a weekend hacking enthusiast, have international competition aspirations, or simply want to ride better, this book gives you a whole new series of effective and ethical tools to use with your horse.
