Biomechanics Analysis with Russell Guire
Time & Location
About the Event
For the Centaur Rider Biomechanics sessions, riders will be asked to wear a Visualise Training Jacket, at the same time markers will be placed on the horse and rider. Both the jackets and markers are used to quantify the rider’s position. Riders will then be asked to ride through a standardised exercise test at which point footage will be taken using our high-speed cameras.
Following this, the various movements from the exercise test will be analysed and discussed with the rider whilst in the arena. Any movement asymmetries observed will be recorded on a user-friendly report which the riders can take home and share with their home team (coach. Physio, therapist etc.).
Throughout the second part of the session, riders will go through a series of exercises addressing and improving any of the observed movement asymmetries. With the use of instant video feedback and coaching delivered biomechanical cues riders will improve their biomechanics which will have an influential effect on the horses way of going. Riders leave with a written feedback from detailing the sessions findings and exercises.
These sessions are open to riders of all levels from riding club through to Olympic/Paralympic level. For new riders, riders will go through our standardised assessment and for returning riders sessions can be tailored to more complex movements, lateral work, half pass, pirouettes and jumping etc.
Riders should wear light breeches, long boots, gloves and a correctly fitted hat. Riders will be asked to wear a Visualise Training Jacket which helps highlight positional weaknesses. Please ensure that hair is tied up out of the way.
All riders will receive a written feedback form. Footage from the session can be purchased from Centaur either by purchasing a CD/DVD for £5.00 or a USB stick for £10.00. This has to be arranged on the day.
Each session is 45 minutes long and costs £65.00
