Training for Symmetry

Do you train to improve your asymmetry?

Everyone has some asymmetry but obviously as riders we want that to be minimal. If we are noticeably stronger on one side this can affect how we are sat and how we give aids to our horse. 

As our horses will also have a weaker side, if we happen to have the same weak side we will be unable to help him out and correct him to improve his weakness.

So, how do you train to help balance out these asymmetries in yourself.

Training unilaterally I.e. single arm or single leg will help to identify your weaker side and then training it without having the other side to help out will improve its strength. 

So here’s some Lower & Upper Body Unilateral Exercises to add to your workouts.
