Posture and Performance
2-Day Course for anyone who wants to learn about the way the horse moves, how it should move and how it affects performance
Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd November 2023
Quenda Glade Equine, Gidgegannup
Good posture is vital for the health, comfort and performance of every horse. Posture is influenced by many things including exercise, training, musculoskeletal comfort, management, hoof balance, pain, behaviour and of course the rider!
Movement is affected by his posture, asymmetry, comfort and conformation.
As a professional, having the ability to recognise postural weaknesses and movement irregularities early on can help prevent problems occurring. To do this accurately you need a thorough understanding of the principles of anatomy, biomechanics, conformation, and posture.
The course will evaluate and consider:
Methods of assessment
Muscular strengths and weaknesses
Stability versus flexibility
Movement & compensation patterns
Balance, strength and stability
