The Biomechanics of Engagement (part 2): The Essential Components of Self Carriage

Every rider, trainer and owner that cares about not damaging their horse needs to see the highly anticipated follow up to Equitopia’s first “Biomechanics of Engagement” video featuring Veterinarian/Trainer Karin Leibbrandt, DVM, Joanna Robson, DVM, and Jeroen Duenk, Equine Bodyworker. Part one of this video explores the physiological consequences of riding “behind the vertical” (hyperflexion) as well as anatomical damage as a result of riding with a hollow back. Part two demonstrates how to start to bring a horse into a relaxed self carriage by teaching the horse to be in both vertical and horizontal balance.
