EQUINE ROLFING/STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION
Shari Maccallum Clark practices Equine Rolfing primarily in Colorado and can also travel by special arrangement.
There is a phenomenon we have seen in equine physical therapy, patterns among the equestrians and the horses we treat. It is apparent that each effects the other through riding. In dressage, the seat becomes the foundation for both the stability of the rider and the initiation of the movement of the horse.
Ideally, the structurally correctness of the rider’s seat, pelvic bones, and hip musculature will be deep and in symmetrical alignment. The more awareness one has of their own body, the more accurately one can identify issues with their horse. Both horse and rider need to get treated for alignment. The combination of various physical therapy techniques like Myofascial release and joint mobilization has an effect on restoring structural alignment and soft tissue health.
