Rider Fitness at Diversity Horsemanship- Books, Classes, and
The rider fitness exercise programs at Diversity Horsemanship
have been developed in response to the most commonly seen
bio-mechanical and postural challenges people have when
learning to ride. Having watched and coached thousands of
riders over the years, Chelsea identifies the issues most
commonly plaguing riders and gives solutions via stretching,
strength training, and exercise theory- both on and off the
horse. She has found that riders who train at home between
rides get more out of their lessons and ride time because their
body is able to do what they want it to do, instead of restricting
them, so they can focus on the horse and the timing and
co-ordination of the aids, as well as the mulititude of other
things the riders need to focus on. She has also noticed a
reduction in pain and stiffness from riding in herself and in
many of her students. The classes and the book help riders
identify what issues they have, why they are detrimental to their
riding, and what strength training and/or stretches they can do
to remedy them.
