Balance and use of aids without tension

I have been an equestrian for over 50 years, riding and showing H/J, event dressage. I am a "B" rated pony clubber and hold a degree as a veterinary technician. I spent 8 years working in a 4-man equine practice.

I also have over 15 years of experience in human functional movement therapies.

I am a certified orthopedic massage therapist and maintain a full-time private practice in injury rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries. Seeing a need to help people recover and move passed their injuries. I became a functional movement specialist using the Alexander Technique and apply the AT to riding to achieve optimal harmony of horses and riders.

Kirsten Nelsen is my trainer. For information on horse training for optimal balance please visit her website: https://www.kirstennelsen.com
