Body awareness can improve your riding seat and your horse’s response!
How often do you think about the distance your seat bones move in the saddle when riding a horse at walk? This was just one of the questions asked by Helen Wain, BHS AI, (reg) of riders at a recent BHS Lancashire event held at Moorview Equestrian Centre, Darwen.
When a rider reduces the movement in their seat bones and engages core muscles, this improves their riding seat and the horse’s response! It was fascinating!
Riders came throughout the day for coaching by Helen who is an accredited ‘Ride with your Mind’ coach and advocate of natural horsemanship. It was a full day at Moorview, with Helen finishing the afternoon with BHS TREC Training sessions.
The sessions just touched the surface of a coaching technique, underpinned by biomechanics research, developed by international coach Mary Wanless, Mary Wanless is the author of several books and also lectures on ‘Ride with your Mind’.
All who came had a great day, learnt lots and enjoyed a great barbecue and a great get together. Thank you to Chris Peat and Kay Bruce, volunteers with BHS Lancashire who organised the event and barbecue.
BHS Lancashire would like to thank Ursula at Moorview Equestrian Centre for kindly allowing us to use the impressive indoor school and allowing us to park at the centre. The Centre is a BHS approved establishment and highly recommended for its facilities.
