Applied Biomechanics, Posture and Training
A Two-Day Course for Coaches, Riders & Professionals

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October 2019
Brooksby Equestrian Centre, Brooksby College

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

LE14 2LJ

A Practical look at Applied Biomechanics, Movement, Posture, Skeletal Maturity, Training, Dressage, Jumping, Position, Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Saddle-fit, Assessment and Asymmetry

 

The course is illustrated with slow-motion video of painted horses showing exactly what is happening under the skin

It will look at practical aspects of applied biomechanics and anatomical principles of movement related to the horse and an in-depth look at the structure and function of the equine body and relate it to way of going.

 

There will be plenty of discussion and hands-on participation. The course is a mix of theory and practical observation.

It is of interest to riders, coaches and professional equestrians, in fact anyone who would like to appreciate the relevance of applied anatomy and biomechanics to how the horse moves
