Equestrian Pilates with Gemma Tattersall is an innovative DVD aimed at the aspiring beginner to intermediate rider. Using a combination of riding demonstrations and specially designed Pilates exercises it helps move the viewer to the next level in their riding, across all disciplines be it dressage, show jumping or cross country. With the energy and riding talents of rising eventing star – Gemma Tattersall, along with the knowledge and focus of Pilates Instructor, Mary Thornton BSc (Hons) MCSP HPC, the viewer is taken on a four month equestrian journey of discovery.
Initially Gemma assesses her four students in the ménage for their common rider faults. They then complete Mary’s specifically designed regime of exercises on a weekly basis. Their journey is completed when they are back in the ménage with Gemma and we see the remarkable developments these exercises have made to their riding.
More riders are becoming aware of the importance of fitness, suppleness and balance. British Equestrian Coaches are talking more about the importance of core stability, which can take riders to the next level of competition in all spheres of riding.
