Rider Fitness & Health

Contrary to popular belief amongst equestrians, riding alone does not provide adequate strength and conditioning levels. It is important for riders to use cross-training to prevent muscular imbalances and to increase their overall fitness level. This can help prevent riding related overuse injuries and accidents due to rider fatigue. There is also research in dressage that shows dressage performance can increase when rider core strength in improved.
