During this Biomechanics Lecture Series with Jillian Kreinbring, she will help you better understand your horse’s movement and realize their potential in any discipline.

To strengthen and enhance equine well-being, it is important to ride and work horses in healthy postures. Throughout this course, students will connect the why and how of balance and collection to understand how a horse’s anatomy, muscular development, and movement patterns affect his performance under saddle.

The 2 ½ day lecture series explains healthy movement in depth and gives the learner the opportunity to develop their eye so they can see healthy and unhealthy postures. Students will:

  • Learn what to look for in healthy movement and muscular development.
  • Discover what creates a healthy posture in riding horses.
  • Evaluate a horse’s posture and anatomy from a new perspective.
  • Add tools to develop horses’ postural strength.
