Rider Fitness at Diversity Horsemanship- Books, Classes, and Clinics Available!!

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.
