Suppleness is your body’s ability to move efficiently without limits or restrictions in harmony with the dynamic movement of your horse


Muscles are for movement.  They provide movement to our joints and create a stable riding posture. Rider-specific strength rather than a generic gym workout is important!


Stability is your body’s ability to coordinate movement and maintain a soft, supple posture – everything you want when riding your horse


The control of your body’s alignment from one movement to the next.  Good posture begins with good balance.  Balance begins when all the moving parts such as joints in your body are ‘stacked’ and aligned

body awareness

Proprioception is the awareness of the position and movement of the body. The foundation of rider biomechanics stems from riders developing and maintaining accurate movement patterns with healthy proprioception 

Finding myself unexpectedly back in the saddle after 25 odd years I soon discovered I had a lot to unlearn and a lot to learn.  Mel come alongside to not only help me become one with my Daisy but instruct me on fine tuning my posture so that my horse could transition better.  I was absolutely flabbergasted feeling the difference that simple tweaking my posture made to Daisy’s cadence and stability. With these simple tools and developing a Strong Stable Seat, my girl is now a dream to ride – most times!
