The Rider Performance Clinic

The Rider Performance Clinic 


Its aim is simple, to optimise rider performance whatever their level by improving your efficiency and effectiveness through balance, activation and body control.

Many things can impact on a riders ability to perform at their best which in turn can impact on our horses way of going. Here at the performance centre we aim to identify and treat problem areas.

Identifying the problem area tends to be the easy bit, establishing the root is the challenging bit. That's where our specialist Physiotherapy assessment and input really comes in to play.
