Why Pilates for Horses?
Pilates isn't just an exercise program, it is a practice which improves the horse’s body and overall performance for a lifetime!
Don’t we all want our horses to live their best life?
Just like humans for a horse to function as it should and perform at its best, it needs to be like a well-oiled machine. The goal with Pilates is to release, mobilise and strengthen the horse from within, giving them the freedom to move.
We use Authentic Pilates Principles, which, when practiced correctly, are proven to be able to make the entire body stronger and more flexible.
In just a few weeks, you can expect improvements in your horses posture, flexibility, mobility and core muscle strength enabling them to carry us with ease and ultimately, perform at their best.
A Proven Miracle
I am founder and Principal Instructor of 'Me..time' Pilates. I trained in Pilates to manage my own back pain and then started the business in 2009. Through this, I have seen first-hand the unbelievable results Pilates can achieve for people. So, when all hope was lost for my horse Molly, I experimented to see if I could mirror the same Authentic Pilates Principles used on humans to benefit my horse. (Molly has a secondary untreatable Kissing Spine condition.)
The programme of tailored exercises is based on research from around the world and my own experience of over 15 years.
The results have been truly amazing. Molly is now strong, fit, pain free and working again. It is from this miracle, that Equine Pilates™ was born.
