Rider Biomechanics – Seat, Posture, Balance
Geneviève Benoit is an Official Coach Certified by the International Society of Rider Biomechanics. She has trained with Colleen Kelly, MISRB, EFA – NJAS Official Dressage Judge (Retired), who started her career in exercise physiology, in cardiac & injury/rehabilitation gymnasiums. Now, some 30 years later, she is one of most sought-after speakers around the world on human movement.
Colleen Kelly has taken some of the world’s best balance exercises from her background in exercise physiology and working in rehab gyms (and sadly her own personal experience learning to walk again), and now uses those same principles and exercises to improve the rider.
Combined with accelerated learning techniques, no matter what the level of rider, or the horse sport, every rider can improve their balance and co-ordination.
Rider Biomechanics is about helping riders of all levels and all disciplines, English or Western, improve their seat, posture and balance through a combination of theory, simulations and practical exercises on horseback.
In RIDER Biomechanics, we don’t just look at movement, we look at WHY things happen. It’s not just “look up and get your heels down”, but WHY did your heels come up in the first place? It looks at your spine and anatomy to make sure you’re sitting in a strong, safe position.
We can improve performance, help you get the competitive edge, help the beginner sit in a stronger safer position, and help prevent injury, and rehabilitate the injuries you already have – to help you to ride long hours without pain.
