Don’t forget to let Gwen know if you want to go to the biomechanics and feed talk on Weds 26th September. And if you’re undecided – check out this review of the biomechanics practical session you could take part in after the talk;
“I first met Russell from Centaur Biomechanics at the Riding Club talk a few years ago. His insight into equine mechanics was fascinating and a real eye-opener for me. I feel confident on how horses move, but to see for myself how my horses move with me onboard was quite a daunting prospect- would I ever want to ride again?!
I was lucky enough to have two sessions with Russell last month at my squad training. His technique and methods were professional and not invasive. Within minutes of riding a few movements I was able to see myself and my horse on screen. Highlighting specific areas in slow motion enabled me to see how effective/correct my position is or how it can be improved. I could then take this into a discussion and we found analogies to help me improve – combat my looking down mainly!
Within just a short session I could see the difference and can understand how that little adjustments could be an extra mark in a test. It has made me more aware and I have my homework to do!”
