Horse-riding & Posture

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen riding a horse, you are asking your body to keep an upright position for long periods of time with nothing to lean back into.  The ability to hold an upright and balanced riding posture at all times is crucial for control and horse performance in any equestrian activity, especially dressage where it is also necessary to have good posture for the best rider appearance.

It is the rider’s responsibility to sit straight at all times no matter what the horse is doing.  However, even if you think you are sitting straight and balanced, you are almost always leaning slightly forward, with one hip and shoulder more advanced and more weight on one seat bone.  As soon as you become distracted or tired you lose the perfect, straight posture compromising your performance and safety.

Good posture is vital, but even with a perfectly straight back, pain can sometimes occur which is why wearing a back support/posture support can help.

Wearing a posture support or brace will help you to maintain an upright, straight posture, leaving you to concentrate solely on your riding without having to think about your posture all the time!

The Perfect Posture brace will fit snugly and comfortably without restricting movement so as not to interfere with your riding, allowing you to SIT TALL!

It is made from a lightweight, breathable material which can be worn discreetly under your clothing.

Perfect Posture has soft, Velcro strap fastenings which when adjusted ease the shoulders back, thus preventing slouching or leaning forward, helping you to maintain a balanced, upright position and keep a straight back during riding.

Correcting and improving your posture to achieve the best, optimal posture means you will not fatigue as quickly during training and competition.
