We all know how important flexibility is to riding, especially in the hip joints! Making sure our hips are flexible is crucial to developing a good seat as a rider in any discipline. Being able to feel those subtle shifts in our horses' back as we ride is key to being able to move with our horse instead of against him. In addition, we can become better riders through more subtle weight shifts in our seat and communicate much more fluidly with our equine partner. Below is a link to a hip opening exercise segment specifically designed for riders. Enjoy!
