Pilates & Riding
a 6 week apparatus class series at The Pilates Studio

Strengthen good habits & explore ways to banish the bad ones- your horse will thank you.

pilates and riding

Pilates is a great method to help you develop a stronger and more supple riding position.


Over the six week series you'll learn ways to improve posture in the saddle, strengthen legs & abdominals and increase hip mobility. 

Each week you'll learn new mat exercises you can practice at home, and we'll use the reformer, trapeze table, chair, spring boards and ladder barrel to explore exercises specific to the needs of riders.  Your balance and coordination will also be challenged on the Oov - the closest thing we've found to having an actual horse in the studio!

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm  

April 4th- May 16th with Suzanne Mente

at The Pilates Studio

$130/6 classes


The classes really helped me with body awareness, adjusting my position and balance, and muscle memory when riding. Plus, they are fun and relaxing. I look forward to doing more.
