Hi everyone, thanks for joining me on the mat today. I’m going to take you through a pretty standard practice I do before I go riding my horse. I absolutely love horseback riding but unfortunately it has created a lot of tension and stiffness in my lower body. It’s important to stretch before and after each ride!

This is an all levels yoga class which will work on opening up your hips and shoulders while stretching deeply through your quads, calves and hamstrings. We’ll have a few low back and upper back stretches as well to make this a well rounded yoga flow. No props needed!

I do very low level dressage and jumping but really this is a great sequence for riding of any kind!

I plan on filming a lot more yoga for equestrian classes in the future, hopefully this Summer when I can do it in the pasture with all the horses present 🙂
