Megan Rees is a Chartered Physiotherapist and has become increasingly aware how the rider can affect the horses’ way of going, posture, performance and physical health as well as knowing the stresses and strains that working with and riding horses’ places upon the human body. Megan’s Physiotherapy knowledge combined with her riding experience in Eventing & Dressage makes her the ideal person to contact in order to improve your performance on your horse.
All of this for £65. You must bring your own horse. A helper to video and hold your horse would be great but not essential.
Bookings to be made direct with Megan on 07809 170147
EquiStable™ Performance Testing
As riders we want to perform to our best ability whilst in the saddle; reducing asymmetries is one of the best ways to do this. Lack of rider symmetry can simply result in a loss of equine performance if we’re lucky or altered equine biomechanics and lameness if we’re not. As a Physiotherapist Megan understands how the human body can respond to the forces that riding imposes upon it. Many instructors can recognise a rider who collapses, twists, shifts or fixes. Few can demonstrate why this happens and more importantly what can be done about it. Megan combines her knowledge as a Physiotherapist (Human and Equine), Rehabilitative Pilates Instructor and Advanced Dressage Rider to help you recognise your positional habits and give you simple ways to change them.
This clinic will involve a quick mounted assessment, followed by unmounted assessment and treatment. A second mounted evaluation is then conducted to assess positive functional changes. Exercises will be prescribed supported with online video instructions.
