At the same time as I begin to see the benefits of my own human Pilates programme, I'm going to do some intense Pilates work with my horse.Inevitably we impact one another, and we do mirror each other's issues....I tend to lean over to the left, so I then stablise myself by hugging her side with my right leg /calf. This, in turn, obviously sends my horse's ribcage through to the left.
Therefore, I don't think it's a coincidence that, on a left circle, she's leading via her left shoulder - not quite motorbiking but you'll get the picture!
So, in turn, on the right rein she falls out through her left shoulder.
I'm going to write a weekly blog article to keep you all up to date with what I'm doing for myself as a rider and for my new horse.
And I hope that you all find some interesting stuff along the way.
