3 Core Stability Exercises For The Equestrian Athlete

Hi

I just wanted to let you see 3 of the exercises that I have been using with my riders lately to help improve their riding specific core muscles.

Take a look at this short video I have put together for you.


Please let me know your thoughts.

Looks like 3 simple but effective exercises.

Do you have any suggestions for building up leg strenght? I have one leg that is significantly weaker than the other.

I would suggest a single leg reach for you Michelle and Mr B

Place a cone 3 feet in front of you.
Stand on the right leg, reach forward towards the cone with your left hand.
Now stand tall again. Repeat this 10-20 times with both legs and complete 3 rounds. You will find that this will improve your knee stability and glute function.

Also, try this exercise.


My best

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks Matt! At work working on my legs now!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
