Fitness and Physical Therapy for the Equestrian Athlete (the human one)

At the USEA Area 2 Annual Meeting on Jan 22, Physical Therapist Dr Jennie Stone gave a great presentation about how riders can improve their fitness to prevent injuries and become a better partner to their horses. Here is a video summary of her presentation - the first two videos explain what physical therapy is, shows the important muscle groups specific to the sport and the third video demonstrates some exercises.

Before attempting any of the exercises, please consult with your physician.
