Finding the Patterns

Dr. Habanova will conduct a thorough Equestrian Consultation and Evaluation using various assessments to determine:

  • static posture
  • dynamic posture
  • gait evaluation
  • balance/coordination
  • symmetry
  • compensation patterns
  • flexibility/mobility
  • movement patterns
  • functional strength
  • areas of weakness

Treating the Root

Dr. Habanova will design an Equestrian Pilates Program which meets your riding goals and is suitable for your body. You will receive supervised instruction during your session as well as personalized recommendations and homework to do in between your sessions. Since each session builds on the previous session, to ensure maximum success, consistency is a crucial component to your program. As you become more conditioned with each session, Dr. Habanova will advance your program appropriately. She encourages your equine trainer to become involved in your sessions so you can take what you learn in the studio into your lesson.
