If you ride and think you may need to start some kind of an exercise program to improve your riding, this is the DVD for you. It covers most Pilates floor exercises and even some on the horse. If you are committed to being a fit rider, this DVD can help get you there. Your horse will appreciate it!
The DVD is nicely done. It’s clear, concise and easy on the eye. It takes you from basic moves to advanced ones. You choose which section to focus on.
I highly recommend this DVD. You won’t be disappointed.

This is an extraordinary book and DVD! I have been riding with back pain for years and searching for a solution; have studied many different methods, exercises, therapies and products in my riding career with limited success, until finding this teaching. What an incredible difference this material has made to me and my horse! We are finally riding in harmony and painfree thanks to these exercises! The information in this book and DVD will certainly help any rider in any discipline become the best rider they can be for their horse.
