Lecture Description

In this video based webinar, Gillian explains how this equine based conditioning system can increase core stability, strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness.
 
The main focus of this webinar is to give you understanding of Gillian's 'Pilates' for horses system so you can decide which are the best and most beneficial exercises for your horse.

 

Building on the principles/theme of posture outlined in the previous webinars and based on the premise that a strong core can support the back and minimise the risk of muscular damage, you will learn how by performing specific exercises correctly, you can help keep the equine athlete, strong supple and injury free.
 

This webinar video lecture was recorded on the 2nd December 2020.
