Through Rider Biomechanics, one gains a complete understanding of the biomechanics of the rider via a new understanding of fascia, the fabric of the body that links muscles into functional chains, rather like strings of sausages. Within both human and equine bodies these form lines of pull, affecting posture, movement, stability and mobility.
Through clear how to descriptions, coupled with copious illustrations, the reader learns how to rebalance the tension within and between one's own lines of pull. The ultimate task is to use this developing awareness to rebalance the tension in the horse's line of pull, gaining much more influence over his carriage and movement. The secrets of talented riders are laid bare.
Mary WanlessBSc BHSI developed an effective method of teaching, based on an understanding of the biomechanical demands of riding and the communication styles that make riding skills easy to learn. She coaches riders at all levels, from relative novices to elite riders, including some who have competed at the highest levels of international competition.
She is the author of the highly successful Ride With Your Mind, For the Good of the Rider, For the Good of the Horse and Ride With Your Mind Essentials.
