Another view of the Psoas. . .
Here is a great article from another blog brought to my attention by Laurie Baldwin of Kalispell Montana
This fits right in with what we have been doing. (Please see the Rider Fitness section in “Contents.”)
With an out-of-town rider in for a week of training, Melynnda and I have had a chance to yet again teach the stretches that one does in the saddle to open and relax the Psoas muscles.
They makes a profound difference in the ride.
The comment from our rider: I never knew what a lot of SPACE there was in that area.
Yes, there is a lot of space, and awareness in that area.
It is called “your seat.”
A wonderful connection to communicate with your horse, and nicely attached to the rest of your body. . .
If you would like the stretches, please ask.
