equilates Class

Equilates™ is in essence using the discipline of Pilates and making the exercises sport specific to the Equestrian.  At Core Fitness Ltd. we teach the rider to develop as an athlete and to gain body awareness.  The rider must develop their  body to have Strength, Flexibility, Coordination, Core Strength with Power, Alignment, and Total Body Control.  The rider must realize that how they move and use their body has a significant effect on how their horse moves and uses his or her body.  When the rider can achieve these things, the horse will in turn develop Rhythm, Suppleness, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness, and Collection.

When the rider has achieved  Total Body Control, then the horse will acheive Total Body Collection. Together it equals a beautiful ride!
