Bitterroot Ranch is the proud host of the Kelly Sigler Horseback Rider Biomechanics clinic. Kelly trained under Colleen Kelly, one of the top innovators in the field of Rider Biomechanics, who developed rider tests used in training police mounted units. Kelly is now her most highly certified instructor in the US. This clinic is a must for anyone who wants to get better balance, seat and posture. Rider Biomechanics is the mechanics of how the body moves. Be it human, horse or other animal, we all move in a mechanical way which can be tested, trained and improved. Kelly doesn’t just look at movement, she examines why things happen. It’s not just “look up and get your heels down”, but why did your heels come up in the first place? Kelly looks at your spine and anatomy to make sure you’re sitting in a strong, safe position. Rider Biomechanics will help you improve performance and get the competitive edge. Learn to prevent injury in human and horse, while rehabilitating injuries you already have to help you ride pain-free. Beginners will come away stronger and safer on the horse.
