After a quick warm up on the mechanical horse, your position will be assessed and priority areas which need work agreed. Kerry will then take you onto the couch for soft tissue work to free areas of tightness, encouraging your body to perform at its optimal level. You’ll then have a lesson on the mechanical horses to continue the progression of your position leaving you with real points you can take away and use in your everyday riding.”
