SYMBIOSIS RIDER REHABILITATION & PERFORMANCE SUPPORT
MOVE BETTER, FEEL BETTER, RIDE BETTER
For you, for your horse
Symbiosis offers a range of treatments and biomechanics coaching options aimed at improving rider posture and effectiveness alongside reducing pain or discomfort experienced whist riding, delivered by a Biomechanics Coach and Performance Mindset Coach working towards accreditation through Ride With Your Mind.
These rider specific services can be bought on a PAYG basis or as 12 month courses with pay upfront or pay monthly options.
We also provide both formal training and fun clinics to share with others.
I am a qualified Equine Sports Massage Therapist with a HND in Equine Science which helps guide my coaching for the good of the horse.
A combination of simulator based coaching, bodywork and prescriptive exercise to help you do your best by your horse, improving the welfare of you both.
So what is biomechanics?
“In essence, understanding biomechanics and applying it is the foundation for good technique in all sports”
Coaches in many other sports already apply this science in the improvement of athlete performance and equestrians are just catching up!
Whether you are a beginner looking for the best start to your riding journey, or competing regularly wanting to get that extra level of performance, working on your biomechanics is a vital element in your support construct. It can help ease discomfort in the saddle and improve confidence by making you more stable and effective, using physics to ensure you are using your body optimally.
Best of all you will be reducing the stress you place on your horses body, so improving their wellbeing at the same time.
We also use these sessions to explore your Performance Mindset, from fear to optimising your competitive edge.
We always start this journey using Rocky, the best behaved horse I know! It is recommended that you bring your own saddle (if you have one; if not I have options in clinic), a pair of trainers and your usual riding gear.
You can book each of our services as standalone appointments, but for best results we recommend that you combine biomechanics coaching with the bodywork. Our unique package for rider performance allows you to combine these two amazing services here onsite, in a 3 hour package, and save money in doing so!
Even better, if you buy a 12 month course which includes the following:
6 x 3hr Appointments (one every 2 months)
12 months of online support membership
Pay Upfront £650
Pay Monthly 12 x £60
If you have suffered an injury or had surgery, or simply have pain in or out of the saddle, we can help you get back in the saddle and future proof your body.
Using exercises on and off the mechanical horse combined with biomechanics assessments and coaching, plus bespoke bodywork (massage and assisted stretching) in communication with any specialists involved in your treatment, we get you back in the saddle faster, stronger and with more confidence. Great for improving strength, balance and coordination in a riding specific programme.
This is a 4 hour package, and we do have a 12 month course, front-loaded with 6 of these face to face appointments in the first 6 months, with a further 6 months of online support to ensure you are fully supported in your recovery.
Pay Upfront £950
Pay Monthly 6 x £170
Bring your own saddle, riding gear and trainers to these appointments for optimising your time in clinic.
