Horse Riders

Get better at using your whole self & focus on quality.  Your horse will thank you for it. 

In locomotion, both animals and humans use several different locomotor modes (CPG’s) to meet the demand for different movement speeds.  Locomotion modes in horses have more variety, i.e., walk, trot, pace, canter, and gallop, based on different patterns of ground contact.   If the rider cannot also couple these different modes together, then movement becomes less elegant.  

Every part of the rider’s body must speak the same language in relation to their intention. We need to be clear in our communication, since we get what we ask for.

Are you stiff or sore?  Do you feel the effects of aging or injuries?  Do you wish it was easier to ride your horse? Is your horse aging, stiff, injured, or anxious?

Client Testimonial

"Having tried Feldenkrais with Wayne to help my stiff hip and lower back, I’m delighted with how much my movement and comfort level has improved as well as optimistic about the possibility of substantial further improvements.  I find Wayne’s quiet confidence and competence as a practitioner very reassuring and am relieved to have found the right treatment for me as I was previously a bit stuck with my hip and back issue.


It is difficult to describe Feldenkrais, but my attempt is that Feldenkrais is a very gentle, hands-on, physical therapy which suggests a new movement pattern to areas of the body affected by old injury or non-optimal movement bad habits.  

As a doctor, I consider that there are so many aspects of musculoskeletal ill health or injury which could benefit from this treatment - as well as other fields of medicine including neurological injury/dysfunction.  I am so impressed by Feldenkrais that I’ve already recommended it to family and friends!”
