Ridden Assessment Susie rides regularly and Events  with her horse Luna.  She worked  at a desk for a long time which left  an imprint on her posture   *tight hips *posterior pelvic tilt *body tipping forward *rounded shoulders *elbows out                           
Targeted Exercise Programme *cleopatra forearms  *on all 4’s core stabiliser *Pelvic tilt and lift Exercises are learnt and annotated, then  a collage image provides Susie with a  summary of her specifically targeted  programme                            
Biomechanical Testing Release first After Biomechanical Testing.. I taught  Susie a hip release exercise.  Here you  can see how the thigh relaxes down  more easily after the release exercise,  allowing her to position her leg more  easily in the saddle                            
Saddle Horse Assessment major focus the front/back line *posterior pelvic tilt *upper thoracic flexion *anterior ribcage tipped *cervical extension in other words...a bit of a slouch
