The Equine Pilates™ Principles
Breath – To build healthy strong muscles a horse needs to breath freely, they need to be free from stress and tension.
Concentration – Our horses need to be able to place their feet in the right place to achieve distances and execute good transitions.
Centering – This applies to the core muscles which bridge the front and hind end which must flow freely.
Control – Activating the correct muscle at the correct time with balance, co-ordination and consistency.
Precision - By isolating smaller muscles we can maximise the strength benefit from each exercise.
Flow – A well balanced horse can move with ease and grace.
Balance – Muscles need to be strengthened evenly, both sides, front to back and top to bottom.
