Rider Fitness & Riding Instruction

Equifitt is about better biomechanics and posture for riders. This means that Equifitt trains fitness and conditioning specifically for riders. 

Fitness clients come from all disciplines, and with all riding ability from beginner adult amateurs, to youth to professional World competition level riders. Clients have included Olympic & WEG riders, 'late-bloomers', riders with disability and the following disciplines: polo, eventing, hunter/jumper, western, natural horsemanship, trail, pleasure, endurance.

Riding instruction is also available for basic riding skills and equitation, and Dressage (up to Level 2). The coaching approach is based on the foundational principles of classical riding- principles which align with Centered Riding and good biomechanics.

It's about using your body more effectively, so your horse can move the way he was designed to.  When you carry yourself correctly, and have awareness, stamina, core strength and mobile joints, you help your horse move better.
