Suzanne will include exercises on the new & innovative Oov apparatus.

We welcome riders coming right from the barn- britches count as yoga pants!

Pilates is a great method to help you develop a stronger and more supple riding position.  Over the eight week series you’ll learn ways to improve posture in the saddle, strengthen legs & abdominals and increase hip mobility. We’ll have fun using all the pilates apparatus- including the new Oov- which challenges balance and coordination- the closest I have found to having an actual horse in the studio!

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. This class will be suitable for both those new pilates as well more experienced movers, the level of difficulty can be adjusted for every exercise.
