There are many ways to get stronger as an equestrian, but some movements and postures are more effective than others. I’ve created this list to give you 5 of the most relevant postures for strengthening your body as an equestrian.
Equestrians require an essential blend of mobility, strength, balance, and body control in order to perform well during their rides. The right blend of yoga postures helps to do just that by taking the time to slow down the movement, focus on engagement in specific muscles, build your balance, and improve your control over specific parts of your body.
You can do the following 5 postures on their own as a stand-alone workout, or incorporate them into your existing workout routine at the beginning, middle, or end of your workouts. There’s no equipment required, so you can do these postures almost anywhere!
These 5 postures are helpful, but getting the benefits of a yoga program depends on you doing the postures and exercises on a regular basis. I recommend doing yoga at least 2 times per week.
