The role of Horse Clinics is to provide riders with sufficient core stability and strength to maintain good posture and trunk stability in the saddle. Reduced flexibility, tight muscles, restricted joints, or simply nervous tension in the rider can all reduce controlled stability by inhibiting the ‘core muscles’ and thus the ability to adapt to the movements of your horse.
Prospective Injuries from Poor Core Stability:
- Lower back pain (lumbar spine and/or sacroiliac joint)
- Abdominal Strains
- Groin Strains
- Hip Flexor / Abductor / Adductor Strains
- Pelvic Misalignment
- Other Musculoskeletal Injuries due to compensation
