HORSES INSIDE OUT Live Painted Horse Demonstrations

Horses Inside Out DemonstrationGILLIAN shows how understanding and caring for the musculoskeletal system allows riders and handlers to ride, train and manage their horses efficiently and effectively. Keeping this system in optimum condition and appreciating how it functions leads to a supple, comfortable horse able to maximise his range of movement and perform at his best. With a rider in a skeleton body suit, it is also possible to see clearly the interaction between horse and rider.
Run as evening or day courses, these tailor made demonstrations, ideal for horse owners, riders and trainers can be tailored for novice to advanced groups, colleges, clubs, therapists, farriers, artists, administrative bodies or conferences at home or across the world.
