CorEquestrian (TM)

Learn exercises off the horse that will help you perform better when mounted – exercises that can ultimately improve the way you communicate with your horse and help keep your body healthy for riding.

Working with Michelle has improved my alignment when I ride. She has helped me to understand my own musculature in a truly functional way enabling me to increase my mobility and my stability for riding. She has given me tools off the horse that I have been able to apply when mounted to achieve a steady sitting trot and a deep seat at the canter. She has taken the mystery out of getting and keeping my hip flexors open, my shoulder blades down, my shoulders level, and my heels down.
Michelle is very patient and understands that it takes a student time to undo bad habits and learn new and better ones. She draws from her knowledge of multiple disciplines to find the best approaches for her students to make the changes they seek. Michelle is able to explain things in different ways to help the novice student better grasp the biomechanics of the human and the equine and their dance together.
