at Bountiful Blessings Farm, Howell, NJ
This specially themed Rider Balance & Alignment Clinic will begin on Saturday (4pm-7pm) with unmounted groundwork (no horse) that includes a presentation on anatomy and biomechanics related to rider alignment; and contact with horse. We will cover how to recognize the "good," the "bad" and the "ugly" of contact in various disciplines. We will examine what happens to the horse's body when the horse is ridden properly vs. being ridden from front to back and pulled into a "frame." Several fun and enlightening unmounted rider exercises will help riders identify the proper balance, alignment and muscle group usage that facilitates quality contact. Mounted instruction takes place on Sunday starting at 9am. All levels of riders are welcome.
