Any physical activity is best done with a warm up.
To ride well requires balance, coordination, and the right amount of strength… enough to keep us stable in the saddle, but not so much that we over tense, gripping our horse and making ourselves sore.
Many times when we ride, we just hop on and go.
However, a few minutes to warm up our muscles and bring awareness to key movements, as well as calm and center our mind, is time well spent.
In this 18 minute video I will take you through several exercises I love for a great riding warm up. Follow along, then pick your favorites to prepare for your next ride!
