Top To Toe - PART 5
Here we look at an exercise to relax the lower spine to create a release which helps the rider to absorb the movement of the horse.
Sometimes you see riders who look uncomfortable in the sitting trot. This could be from tension in the horse or restriction from the rider. Inability to flow with the movement can start from tightness from your jaw and neck. So the rider needs to feel release and flow through the whole spine and this shows how we can create more flexibility through the lower back to increase synchrony in our riding.
