Yoga on Horseback

I recently took my first yoga on horseback lesson. What an eye opening experience that was. I cannot say how many barriers it crashed through in terms of identifying position problems. We did it mostly in half seat position. I'm thinking what it actually does is let muscles that were in a constant state of contraction actually relax for a change, since I started out with my heels up and ended up with them sunken like they've never been before. I couldn't resist hopping onto my own horse afterward and taking my new found half seat out for a test ride. We did a few jumps and, instead of collapsing over the fences as usual, my upper body stayed dead quiet!! Anybody who is having a problem with jumping ahead, legs flopping around, or sitting the trot, take a yoga on horseback lesson. It's the best lesson money I've spent yet.

I'm so jealous. I love yoga. I have wanted to try it on horseback for awhile now, but can't find anyone near me who teaches it.

I've never heard of that. It sounds cool. I doubt it exists in Arkansas though.

I'd never heard of it either. My friend told me about it last year. It sounded so silly, I didn't consider doing it. My twisted middle aged body and inability to move up in our jumping skills changed my mind. I'm so glad I went.
