Words from Jan Brink

"Over the years, I have seen what it takes to get to the top of the sport as a competitor, horse trainer and coach.

If I could sum it up in one sentence, it would be this:

'The rider that is best in a unified whole wins'

That means you can achieve success only with a holistic approach to the mental and physical health of both the horse and rider


Pilates for the Equestrian

'Create a deeper seat and an ideal riding partnership with your horse'.

Frustrated that your horse won't respond properly to your commands?

Having trouble keeping a stable seat?

Feeling unusually sore and tired after a ride?

Imbalances develop over time, based on physiology, posture and lifestyle. How you move when not riding – other types of exercise, the amount (and quality) of sitting you do at work, etc. – directly affects how you function on a horse. Resulting asymmetries greatly affect movement and alignment, resulting in impediments like:

Rounded shoulders

Tightness and curving in the lower back

Tight hamstrings


Why Pilates?

Pilates exercises increase your body awareness, and improve flexibility, balance, and strength in order to facilitate an optimal riding experience. Pilates helps equestrians:

Lengthen the spine and strengthen the core, which stabilizes the body in movement

Sculpt a stronger body with increased flexibility, strength, and balance

Create a deeper seat and enhance the suppleness of the lower back

Strengthen the abdominals

Increase hip independence

Increase leg and body length


Performance Benefits

With a strong core and increased flexibility, riders can:

Freely and gently move arms and legs around a stable base

Help clarify aids and hold jumping form

Avoid collapsing and bouncing in the saddle

Better absorb a horse's movement

Improve posture to help you deepen your seat

Increase comfort during and after your ride

Maintain neutral pelvis so you can easily follow your horse's movements

Develop a trusting riding relationship, where your horse responds to your commands and is confident in your ability.
