Rebuild Your Ride
Pain and performance solutions for equestrian athletes. As a certified athletic therapist, kinesiologist, and performance coach- I help riders of all kinds develop themselves as athletes. My expertise includes: biomechanics, injury rehab, conscious riding techniques, mindfulness, and awareness building for rider and horse. I help riders from grassroots to professional improve their connection, eliminate pain and enhance their performance.
ARE YOU READY TO REBUILD YOUR RIDE?
I am a Certified Athletic Therapist and Athletic Development specialist that focuses on equestrian athletes. I believe in a big picture approach to all things related to biomechanics, injury rehabilitation, cross training, rider fitness, and performance coaching. I know the power of our mind on our physical abilities, and how our biomechanics impact our horse's movement. It's all connected. In order to be successful as a rider we first have to develop our internal awareness- rebuilding our ride and our relationship to ourselves and our horse's along the way.
What I Offer
I offer both in person and virtual consults, travel across Canada to teach clinics and workshops, and offer regular online workshops and fitness classes.My services include, but are not limited to: on and off horse biomechanics analysis, cross training programs, performance consulting, injury rehab and mindfulness for riding athletes.
Rebuild Your Ride
Always stuck being told the same equitation cues by your coach? Repeating bad habits or soundness issues in your horse? Performance ruts? Your horse is rarely the problem. Your movement, position, and biomechanics are a large part of how your horse moves- by closely analysing your biomechanics and improving your efficiency we can rebuild your ride for the better.
CROSS TRAINING + ATHLETIC DEVELOPENT STRATEGIES
Personalized and Professional
Riders are athletes too. My extensive background and training in human movement and exercise science allows me to design cross training programs tailored specifically to you as a rider.
I know what works, common problem spots, and exactly what you need on and off the horse as an athlete.
Riding Shouldn't Hurt
Injuries unfortuantely happen. I am a fully certified and experience athletic therapist, as well as a rider myself. Rehabbing riding athletes is quite literally my day job. If you're experiencing an injury and need expert guidance, I can help. Whether it's a new injury or an old pain point.
What My Clients Are Saying...
I have been having regular sessions for a few months now and I cannot express fully how grateful I am to Kathlyn for her expertise and strong intuitive guidance. Since starting, I have had less pain, a better connection and deeper understanding of my posture and the ability to translate that to my horses is obvious. I have better control in the saddle and feel comfortable and consistent while riding multiple horses every day. She has been a great addition to my program whether it be with my competition horses, my horses in for training or with my students. Becoming a more effective rider through position should be on the top of every riders priorities. We are very lucky to be able to have access her knowledge. I highly recommend adding her to your program no matter what discipline you ride or what your goals are.
