There is a good book written by a physio called 'Riding from the Inside Out' that has exercises designed for riders with a focus on core strength. Many are somewhat similar to the pilates exercises I have learned from my physio. It was first published in 2003 in Australia and later in Great Britain. I have had my copy for a couple of years so am unsure of availability. If you could track down a copy I am sure it would be helpful.
Hi all, since reading the book suggested to me Riding from the inside out, I am in a better position to realize I need to have stable body balance best acheived by strong core muscles to correct misuse of other muscles. I am ready now Dr Deb to try to find those exercises that you talked about once before here in New Zealand. The ones to strengthen the iliopsoas muscles. I have looked on the internet but havent come up with anything much. I would like to find some to use on the swiss ball (or fitball). Any ideas would be much appreciated. Many thanks
Thank you Marilyn I have downloaded some of the info looks great. More reading have located some info as Dr Deb suggested from Josh Nichol he explains how horses think really well. Thanks all wished I could speed read....
