3 Core Stability Exercises For The Equestrian Athlete


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
