In this presentation I share:

The real reason riders struggle to sit the trot or have a hard time sticking a spook … even if they are strong

Why rider stiffness and aches almost always go hand in hand with a loss of rider confidence … and what it takes to re-claim true rider confidence.

The surprising reason strengthening the core is like ‘putting the cart before the horse’ … and what works instead

Why  icing, massage and chiropractic are a waste of time and energy…and may actually be counter productive!

Why ‘toughing it out’ isn’t actually such a good idea, keeps riders stuck and tends to confuse most horses … and the simple strategies our clients use to get ‘un-stuck’ and start communicating with their horses from a place of ease and balance.

Why feeling less confident when riding goes hand in hand with riding with stiffness and aches … and how our clients re-claim their confidence.

How our clients create a more balanced and supple seat … and enjoy the side-effect of a more positive and cooperative horse.

And … how they do all this without missing a single day of riding!

Leonardo: The Best Decision for my Health and Riding
"I’ve been riding for 10 years. Two years ago I had ankle surgery. After a long time recovering, I started riding but I was stiff, unbalanced and had a lot of back pain. It also undermined my confidence to ride and jump. In May 2018, I started in the program and back pain subsided immediately and as I continued the program my ankles became more flexible and I got my confidence back to jump bigger jumps. I’m more balanced and also my mindset has changed. I have my goals accomplished by end of 2018!!! Looking forward to 2019!!! Thank you so much!"
Vickie: Riding Better Than Ever!
I was experiencing upper and lower back pain and extreme difficulty in sitting straight on a horse. Working with Anna has been most helpful! The Program is very easy to follow, yet the exercises are challenging and effective. Anna has set it up so there is a progression of many of the exercises that keep pushing the body to better function. For example, I was having a problem dismounting, I felt like I was going to fall backwards. Anna did an individual session with me, prescribing some exercises that have given me the physical confidence to jump off a horse like I did 40 years ago!!
Christine: No More Pain During or After Riding
I wanted to give Anna a big thanks today! I was experiencing back pain while riding and in other daily activities. To my surprise, we have worked more on getting my legs to be straight before approaching my back. The change in my body is really noticeable. I never realized that I was basically standing on one leg all of the time. Anna told me that the leg that was working so hard deserved an award! In any case, last night I rode for an hour and was able to both ride without pain and have no pain or tightness the next day. I honestly can't remember the last time I had no pain during a ride or after!
Bobbie: Back to riding with JOY!
Anna, It is a wonderful feeling to be able to ride my horses every week at a sale barn penning cattle. I have not been up to it for the past 5 years because it hurt too much & I couldn't get on & off my horse without help. My confidence has exploded with knowing I can ride the long hours & still keep myself in saddle!!! Every week I can do a little more & am loving how my horses are responding to me. Anna it's been forever since I felt that bond when riding. I was looking for the burn in my neck to attack so I didn't feel the horse under me. Now I'm feeling the horse and life is good again! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
