Are you fit to ride? EQUI-CORE Course

Equi-Core has been designed to help improve rider position & effectiveness. The fitness programme brings awareness to riders who have in the past given little thought to how their position may influence their horse. Riders often concentrates so much on their horse that their own position can become less effective without them even noticing. The horse then often mirrors their imbalances & in turn also becomes stiff and unbalanced. When a rider with good core strength and balance engages their core muscles & awareness they are more able to communicate and influence their horses performance. Who doesn't want to have that little edge in competition !!

From beginner to advanced level, every riders can improve their current state and in turn improve the partnership with their horse .......

It's not just our horses that need to be athletes.....Charlotte Dujardin and Olivia Towers agree!

What does the class involve?

Equi Core (EC) sessions are taught both on and off the horse. You will learn how to identify neutral spine and also how to engage your Core muscles. After mastering the principles of EC your core muscles will be challenged by the use of the equipment e.g. mini balls, Dynabands, & stability balls. As your core becomes stronger you will feel an improvement in strength, posture and balance. These EC principles are then easily transferred to your horse.

The course is run by Angie Blackwell, she has worked in the Health and Fitness Industry for over a decade; she is a fully qualified and insured Fitness professional offering Massage therapy, Fitness, Pilates and Equi-Core in and around Scotland.Her full CV & Bio can be found here:
