HOW DO I STOP MY TOES TURNING OUT?
German Cavalry Manual 1937 : "The thigh rests against the saddle; their inner broad surfaces are turn far enough inward to position the knee flat against the saddle....If the thigh is rotated in a way that makes the knee cap point outwards, it results in a hollow or open knee, which does not allow a secure seat"

"Find the answer to On The Bit & Beginning Lateral Work with Mary Wanless BHSI BSc"
6 1hr lectures direct from our indoor arenas using real riders and horses to demonstrate how an understanding of the Fascial Net and Rider Biomechanics can influence the shape of the horse's back and cause them to move into 'The Seeking Reflexes' SIT BETTER & GAIN INFLUENCE
With focus on stability, tone and core you will learn how to sit better, be less affected by the horse's contortions and begin to shape the horse correctly through good rider biomechanics.
Imagine a ride with no shoving, pushing, pulling or fiddling. This is rider biomechanics - "making the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy elegant..." - Moshé Feldenkrais

In my model of rider biomechanics, stability replaces relaxation as the rider’s trump card. It is centred stability that gives elite riders the body control to remain still, elegant and effective on top of the moving horse. The skills of training horses then have a solid foundation. Without inner stability, we are all temped to create outward stability by pulling on the reins; but even this may not stop the bumps, wobbles, or jerks that the horse cannot possibly interpret. Stable riders have reduced the ‘noise-to-signal’ ratio inherent in their sitting – they are neutral with respect to the forces of the horse’s movement. This spares the horse from wondering which of the rider's movements are meaningful, and which are noise.
