Equipoise Pilates Balanced Rider, Balanced Horse Clinics are designed to both educate, inform and inspire the rider. The Clinics run over both one and three days and each rider will develop a deeper understanding of their individual postural balance, compensatory patterns and needs both in and out of the saddle.
Each clinic has a maximum of 8 students that are divided into a morning and an afternoon group of 4 students.
Each group session starts with a Pilates mat class that focuses on preparing both mind and body for riding. Students are then divided into two groups of 2 for an hour of ridden work that focuses on the rider’s balance, posture, position and effectiveness in the saddle, as well as in-saddle release techniques and awareness exercises that can facilitate change in both horse and rider.
The 3 day clinic format has a lunchtime information and Q & A session where participants have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have and further develop their knowledge of rider biomechanics.
Helen’s wealth of experience enables her to easily assess and address each student’s individual needs both in and out of the saddle.
One day clinic: $125 per person. Three day clinic: $400 per person
