More About Fit to Ride in 9 Weeks! by Heather Sansom; Marg Henderson
 
 
 
Overview
Regardless of discipline, level of expertise, training philosophy, body shape, or fitness level, all riders do better--in horse-related activities on the ground and in the saddle--when they take care of their bodies and maintain their fitness. While riding is a great way to enjoy an active lifestyle, on its own it is not enough to condition and tone the body to the degree we need, and then the horse must make up the fitness gap in our physical partnership. If our reflexes are slow, if our bodies fatigue, if our position collapses, if tension patterns appear, then the horse suffers repetitive asymmetrical strain or develops compensatory movement habits. It is for his good, as well as ours, that certified personal trainer and riding coach Heather Sansom has developed an utterly achievable 9-week plan to give every rider the straightness, suppleness, strength, and stamina she needs to rider her best. With hundreds of one-of-a-kind illustrations depicting accurate musculature on the rider's body, and dozens of proven exercises organized in a progressive fitness program with easy-to-use schedule charts, Sansom's book is the key to enjoying the ride, being fair to your horse, and getting into fabulous shape--in nine weeks
