When formulating an equine exercise prescription it is essential to understand the biomechanics of locomotor muscle action and the various roles muscle action plays in locomotion so that both obvious and subtle postural ‘power leaks’ can be spotted for addressing either in manual therapy or planning exercise.  This presentation includes a ridden demonstration of how a BTV (behind the vertical) posture can potentially be corrected when the rider is addressed.

This unique instructional webinar is a 3 hour long presentation providing practical content for those equine and equestrian professionals and competition riders working with the precision sport horse, saddle and rider combination that want to gain a greater understanding of what is involved in athletic movement and develop and eye for clearly ‘seeing’ athletic loading.  The presentation focuses on the theory of muscle action, together with a practical application of muscle names, origins, insertions and function to underpin the ability to ‘see’ load with confidence.  A series of static postural power leak case studies is presented for practice and discussion.

Ideal for those addressing the horse’s posture as part of their work, study or competition riding.  Presented by PhD student, graduate human Sports Therapist, Equine Veterinary Physiotherapist and certified saddle fitter, Caroline Lindsay, who has been working successfully with horse, saddle and rider combinations for more than 2 decades.

This presentation perfectly complements previous Horse Saddle Rider presentations – How to Plan an Individual Equine Exercise Programme, Applied Kinetic Anatomy Essentials and Identify, Learn & Recall Equine Postural Anatomy.

Fantastic course filling up the gaps and adding new techniques to the existing tool set. Amazing way of presenting material. Super clear and easy to understand.” K.D.

A really interesting series of webinars, very clearly and thoroughly presented with excellent pictures and videos…..this is definitely information and advice I will keep coming back to!” J.P.

One for the equine biomechanics geeks!  4th Horse Saddle Rider presentation in the series created for equine and equestrian professionals and competition riders dedicated to ethical horse saddle rider performance.

Presented in a refreshingly unique highly informative format, the webinar covers the theory of muscle action, contraction and a comprehensive range of the essential components of learning how to analyse horse and rider movement from photo stills. This presentation relates postural functional anatomy to equitation and how the horse, saddle and rider interacts as a moving combination. Includes film, explanations and discussions generated from audience participation.

Content includes:

  1. A visual overview of how equine muscles produce movement according to where they are sited.
  2. Identification of the prime muscle actions occurring in a horse and rider over a single jump stride over four separate phases.
  3. A visualisation of the influence of loading on muscle recruitment.
  4. An explanation of movement planes and axes.
  5. What is really meant when we refer to biomechanics of the horse and rider.
  6. Joint movement terminology.
  7. Muscle action and what is involved in a single stride that the horse makes.
  8. Muscle strength, contraction and the various roles muscles play.
  9. Gait strategy.
  10. An overview of the phases of training sports movement.
  11. An overview of the many elements of muscle conditioning.
  12. Static and dynamic postural ‘Power Leak’ case studies including correction of BTV (behind the vertical) dynamic posture.

As well as being highly applied, this lecture is highly visual and has a wealth of video content for clarification of the theory.

    Another super, educational video from Caroline. I’ve done other webinars/courses too and always learn so much. Caroline is also very helpful if you have any queries.
