Horse Management Level 3 students have been working on improving their rider fitness.
The group, as well as staff members, have been taking part in fitness sessions led by Caroline West from The Equestrian Fitness Company.
The sessions, which happen every Friday, focus on improving a rider’s core strength with specific muscle activation exercises and stretches. These will improve a student’s riding, making them stronger and more confident.
Jenny Huxall, Horse Management tutor, said: “The students look forward to their session every week and can already see an improvement in their riding. Everybody has fun whilst doing it also.”
