Posture DOES matter!

I recently had the pleasure of teaching in Oregon; two riders stuck with me as examples in which very small changes in spine alignment and posture made a world of difference in their sense of self and effectiveness. (These cases are fictionalized).

Roberta is an accomplished rider with a bold and focused approach on horseback. She […]

Open House Aug 30, 2009

What a wonderful afternoon today! Almost 60 folks stopped by my RiderPilates Open House show casing my new barn and arena (and my new horse, Donner Girl!). I had so much fun talking to clients and friends, new and old. Thank you all for coming.
