BABE & POLES
Monday 11th December, 2023
An opportunity to improve your alignment with Gill Liggins and Michaela Preston.
‘Babe’ the Equicizer is our hand-crafted mechanical horse that simulates riding so you can improve overall fitness and practice skills. After all, horseback riders are athletes too! We use ‘Babe’ to analyse your posture and improve your alignment.
Follow up session
After your initial ‘Babe’ session, you have the option to carry on looking at improving your alignment on your own horse with Michaela (who is the only licensed Franklin Method Equestrian Trainer based in Yorkhire) with the of use Franklin Balls and Bands. They help coordinate movement which improves strength, flexibility and posture in your riding.
Polework is good for improving balance, control and steering. It also requires precision, so it can help to refine your aids (and your horse's reaction to those aids), which benefits everyday riding and is also great gymnastic work for the horse.
You can choose just to have one session on it's own or pair up a 'Follow Up Session' or a 'Poles' session with a 'Babe' session. Prices are as follows: -
Option A - Babe - £35
Option B - Follow Up - £35
Option C - Poles - £35
Option A + Option B - £60
Option A + Option C - £60
