Description


Practical exercises, enhanced with copious photographs and
diagrams, show how to balance your front and back, left and right--yielding
skills that simultaneously address the equivalent imbalances in your horse. Note, this book was first published in the USA as New Anatomy of Rider Connection.

For the
past 30-plus years, Mary Wanless and her bestselling Ride with Your Mind books
and videos have helped revolutionize the art and science of riding horses. Now
she takes her pioneering techniques--which combine a lifetime's influences from
the fields of psychology, biofeedback, neuro-linguistic programming, the
Alexander and Feldenkrais techniques, Tai Chi, massage, dance, anatomy, sports
psychology, and educational kinesiology--to a whole new level. In her newest
book, Wanless teams up with Anatomy Trains(R) creator and author Thomas Myers to examine
how the "fabric" of our bodies (fascia) can potentially allow us to generate
both stability and what so many riders find elusive even after years in the
saddle--"feel."


Recent research shows how the body-wide "net" of
fascia that both wraps each muscle and connects your skin to your bones can be
the source of postural imbalances and the resulting restrictions in your
movement. Wanless posits that the difference between "average" and "elite"
riders lies in the quality of connection and awareness within this fascial net,
and she gives us the means to take practical and meaningful steps toward
addressing such issues, resulting in extraordinary change in the way we look
and feel on horseback.
