New Horse Pilates Course At Derby College
Derby College’s equine centre at Broomfield Hall is holding a special Pilates workshop for riders and horse owners who want to improve the health and well being of their animals.
The 2.5 hour workshop will be held on Saturday September 17 between 9.30am and 11.30am and is open to anyone aged 14 and above.
It is the latest in a series of short and part time courses at the Equine Centre aimed at supporting local equestrian enthusiasts with a wide range of skills including riding and grooming techniques.
Tutor Hannah Haskew explained: “The benefits of Pilates and core stability exercises for improving balance and posture in riders have been widely recognised in recent years.
“This course course looks at how the same principles can be applied to the horse in order to improve their posture and athletic performance.
“Participants may either bring their own horse with them for the session or use the college horses, to learn simple exercises that will activate and strengthen those core muscles and can easily be incorporated into their regular routine.
“Such exercises will help to improve a horse’s posture, suppleness, balance and performance and everyone will leave the session with a wide range of easy exercises which can be continued at home.”
