pilates and riding series - The Pilates Studio

Pilates for Riders

  • Improve your balance & posture in the saddle
  • Strengthen abs to support your ride
  • Increase hip mobility


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

Suzanne has created exercises based on both her riding and pilates instruction.  The oov challenges balance & coordination- the closest thing to having an actual horse in the studio!  The straps & springs of the reformer and tower recreate stirrup & rein connection. Explore your position- think differently about how you sit and balance in the saddle.

Wednesdays at 6:15pm

Our next class series starts soon.

Suzanne Mente

Suzanne's direct approach to teaching and keen observation skills moves her clients towards their goals fast. She is particularly interested in hip mobility and in helping horse riders improve their balance, strength and flexibility in order to better connect with their horses.


I love my weekly class at the Pilates Studio. Suzanne keeps the exercises varied and tailored to her students. It's a small group so we are able to get a lot of individual attention.

And we laugh a lot too! The Studio is such a great community within our community.

Suzanne- Thank you for your knowledge and laughter each week. I look forward to coming to see what you have dreamt up and funny stories that you tell us to laugh through the challenging Pilates moments. I always get upset when I can't make it to the 10am Saturday.
