We started off the day assessing muscle tension patterns and how they might relate to the horse’s behavior, posture and movement under saddle. Measurements were taken and analyzed and a few saddle trees were placed on the horses back to get an idea of how they interact with the horses musculoskeletal system. We then headed over to the arena to make observations under saddle.
The clinic left clients with a deeper appreciation of how important muscle tension patterns are and how easy it can be to influence them in a positive manner. We took a brief look at laterality and working with the asymmetrical horse and established the link between the profile of the saddle and the symmetry of the shoulders.
Let us know if you are interested in booking a clinic at your farm. Four riders and a couple auditors makes the perfect sized group. Big thanks to Rosemary for hosting us, we look forward to our next event at Roseview Farm.
