Many of the injuries experienced by equestrians do not occur during the ride itself. They actually occur as a result of not stretching once you are finished with your ride. Being upright on a horse is a killer workout! It taxes your upper-body, hips, core, and your spine.
There are many stretches you can do after a ride to help cool down and recover more quickly, but my goal is to show you the most effective ones, to ensure you are getting the most out benefit for precious time spent.
These are the 5 poses I recommend for this particular situation, but the best way for you to achieve the benefits these postures can provide for you is by following a results-focused yoga program and completing multiple weekly workouts on a regular basis. Learn more about how we help you with that at the bottom!
Here are the 5 best post-ride stretches for equestrians to prevent injury and recover more quickly.

This video explains how to properly and safely perform each posture, where you should be feeling the posture in your body, and how it affects your fitness as an equestrian. Enjoy!
