I have a distinction in ITEC level 3 massage which includes anatomy & physiology. I also have an ITEC level 3 qualification in sports massage and a certificate in using deep tissue techniques. This gives me an insight into the rider's own problems with muscular tension. It is so important to realise the connection between the rider and the horses way of going. Even the greatest riders will not be perfectly symmetrical, but we should aim to be as straight and correct as we can be in the saddle if we want our horses to be straight. A horse is also not symmetrical with exactly the same muscle structure on both sides, and will naturally compensate for that. He will have strengths and weaknesses which, as riders/ trainers we will work on improving. However, if the rider is not balanced and straight then the horse will have to compensate for that too, possibly leading to more problems and discomfort.
