The answer to these questions
might be a biomechanical issue.
Biomechanics is how the body moves and works. It is the study of natural physical laws that govern the movement of muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints during sports and other physical activities. A rider’s biomechanics are an important factor in how the body moves when riding a horse, as well as how it interacts with the horse.
Riders must be aware of their own biomechanical limitations and strengths in order to improve their skills. However, determining what those limitations and strengths are can be difficult. This is where a riding biomechanics analysis by a trained Doctor of Physical Therapy can help.
A riding biomechanics analysis uses mounted video with an unmounted Physical Therapy joint and muscle examination to objectively look at the movement of the body in a variety of ways. This information helps riders determine what their specific strengths and weaknesses are, allowing them to make the necessary adjustments to improve their riding.
The analysis also allows for personalized instruction and corrections, giving riders the tools they need to identify and address any issues in their biomechanics. By having a comprehensive understanding of their own riding biomechanics, riders can build on their strengths and develop skills more quickly and effectively.
