The Biomechanics of Walk - On-Demand Webinar

Walk is a superb exercise for warm up, rehabilitation and strengthening as well as correcting straightness issues. Presented with Gillian’s usual flair and enthusiasm this webinar, the first in a series of 3 on Understanding and Assessing Movement, looks in detail at the benefits and biomechanics of walk.

We study the variations between different types of walk from collected to extended and the Spanish walk to free walk on a long rein. 

This webinar is illustrated with high-definition slow motion videos of Gillian’s signature anatomically painted horses, with views from above on a treadmill as well as from in front and behind in addition to the traditional side view.

Gillian explains and illustrates problems in the walk from irregularities such as a lateral walk to asymmetry and straightness issues. This on-demand webinar is full of techniques and exercises to improve the gait and top tips for improving the walk to gain higher marks in dressage tests.

This webinar will give you the tools to accurately assess the walk and is perfect for riders, coaches, therapists and saddlery professionals - in fact anyone wishing to improve their horse’s walk.
