Does riding feel like a struggle?

  • You ask for the right lead, but he picks up the left. Maybe not every time, but most of the time, and you KNOW he knows his leads. 
  • His head flies up in the air and he inverts his back when you ask for a transition. 
  • He’s like turning a semi-truck! In one direction it’s not too bad, but the other, well, you better start turning early!
  • His trot is so choppy, you’ve given up even trying to sit and the canter isn’t much easier.
  • He is ALWAYS behind your leg. It’s like he’s totally ignoring you. Ugh. How many times do you have to kick to get a response?
  • There are times you feel so out of balance in the saddle that you’re surprised you didn’t fall off!

How much sweat, time, money, and frustration are you willing to spend on mediocre rides before you fix the REAL problem?

You’ve done everything your trainer tells you to fix your body and it's just not working. 

But, what is the cost of not getting your body organized?

  • Your horse won't trust you
  • He won’t reach his potential
  • He’ll be unhappy
  • He may develop physical/medical problems
  • He may develop behavioral problems like bucking, rearing or stopping!
  • YOU MAY DECIDE IT’S NOT FUN ANYMORE AND GIVE UP RIDING

Wait … Give up riding?

Have you already started creating reasons not to go to the barn? Or you go, but don’t ride?

When you do ride, nothing seems to be working and you get off your horse in tears?

Nothing seems to help… even lessons. 

Instructors keep saying the same things – your right shoulder is too high, you’re sitting left, your side is collapsing (you get the idea!) – over and over – even when you THINK you are doing it right, you still get the same results!

But, when you watch your trainer ride him and he’s straight and round, knows his leads, and keeps perfect balance... could the problem actually be YOUR BODY—not his?

With Move Like A Rider You Will:

  • Create balance and stability with even seat bones for clear communication with your horse
  • See clear examples and instructions both mounted and off the horse for better understanding
  • Create trust, balance, and harmony with your horse as you develop new motor patterns through the exercises.
  • Learn to activate YOUR topline to create consistent energy in your horse
  • Be confident in your ride alone or between lessonsknowing that your motor patterns are correct, and if they aren’t, you know how to fix them!
  • Learn to carry your arms and create consistent contact with your horse
  • Learn to utilize your ribcage to connect the rest of your body to your horse

If you find that …

You've been told the same thing over and over again with no results.

Your trainer – or anyone else for that matter – can ride your horse without having the same problems.

Your vet, farrier, chiropractor, and others can’t find any physical cause for your horse's problems.

You’re stuck… at the same place - month after month, year after year - and feel like you’ll NEVER progress to the next level. 

 Most trainers can tell you how to strengthen your horse's body but they can't tell you how to fix your own body. 

And most fitness programs are not designed for the specific needs of riders… they certainly don’t understand how YOUR movement affects your horse! 

Experience truly magical rides where you’re in complete harmony and go to sleep at night content to be the rider your horse deserves.

Move Like A Rider Exercises Have Improved Riding Problems I Didn’t Even Know I Had!

“Tonya opened my eyes to problems I didn't even know existed, like I ride with my right hip two inches behind my left hip. That's why I have trouble turning left. The horses try and tell us, but we don't always understand. Every horse I've ever ridden has trouble turning left. 

Her knowledge base goes to the root of the problem.. She gave me exercises not only on my horse, but I got great exercises that I can do when I'm not riding. 

Targeted exercises where I can strengthen my weaknesses – when it's dark out or when it's raining or when I have five minutes to do it. That is huge for me and has really allowed me to make progress. My horse is so happy that I know Tonya.”

What’s Inside Move Like A Rider

Module 1: Create Balance and Stability with Equal Seatbones.

How to ensure your seat bones are equally weighted for clear communication with your horse!

Are you putting more weight onto one seatbone than the other? How would you know?

If your horse has difficulty in the canter transition or consistently picks up the wrong lead in one direction. Maybe he tends to fall in or out, doesn’t move evenly, and doesn’t turn well in one direction? Or maybe it feels like he’s just not listening to you! Unevenly weighted seatbones may be the root cause of your issues.

Seatbones create your entire foundation, so let’s get this right and keep building from here! 

In this module, you’ll learn how to assess which seatbone is dominant AND how to correct your default motor pattern that causes your crookedness! Come away with actionable steps that will retrain your muscles so that you sit evenly in the saddle. You’ll be more effective and able to communicate clearly so that your horse doesn’t have to guess what you are asking him to do!

>> Don’t wrack your brain trying to remember what you learned in the videos! You’ll even get a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

Module 2: Engage Your Neck to Activate Your Topline.

How to utilize YOUR poll and topline to improve communication with your horse!

Did you know that just like your horse, you have a topline too? By engaging your topline, you can create consistent energy to your horse.

If your horse disengages his topline, pulls or fights the bit, has no contact/connection with the bit, and loses self-carriage – your neck position may be the cause. If you hear, “Don’t stick your head out” in your lessons, then your neck is in a forward position that won’t engage your topline muscles. This is one time having a double-chin equals success!

Your neck activates all the muscles through the back of your body and coordinates with your arms, seat, and legs. 

In this module, you’ll learn to position your head and neck! Come away with actionable steps to engage your topline so that you create more engagement, self-carriage, and harmony with your horse.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

Module 3: Optimize Your Ribcage for Connection Throughout Your Body.

How to utilize your ribcage to coordinate better communication with your horse!

Does your ribcage follow your shoulders? Or is it fixed in one place, no matter whether you’re on a circle or a straight line? Hmmmm. 

If your horse has difficulty turning, tilts his head, or loses his topline and inverts through the turn - your ribcage may hold the key. If you hear, “Look in the direction you’re turning or look where you are going” in your lessons, chances are you are turning your head without your shoulders or ribcage. If you have one shoulder, hip, or leg higher than the other, this may also be a sign that you don’t have an independent ribcage. 

The ribcage is a critical connector, coordinating the rider’s poll, arms, seat, and legs. 

In this module, you’ll learn to identify how you use your ribcage! Come away with actionable steps to optimize the connection between the ribcage and your arms, poll, seat, and legs so that you can have more straightness, control, and harmony with your horse.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

Module 4: Utilize Better Arm Position for Softer Engagement.

How to carry your arms to improve communication with your horse!

Are you keeping consistent contact with your horse through your arms? Are your elbows allowing your horse to go forward?

If your horse disengages his topline, fights the bit, loses connection, turns his head far to the outside or inside, or has uneven lateral work – his contact through your arms may be the root of the problem.

Fix the position of your arms and restore the connection for harmony with your horse’s mouth.

In this module, you’ll learn to hold your arms.  Come away with actionable steps to create and maintain connection with your horse’s mouth!

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

Module 5: Improve Hand Tension for Better Contact with Your Horse’s Mouth.

How to utilize your hands to maintain a steady, soft connection!

Do you open and close your hands throughout your ride? Or are your knuckles white from gripping the reins as tight as you can?

If your horse shakes his head, fights the bit, disengages the topline, and loses self-carriage – or if you have a hard time maintaining good contact with your horse’s mouth – the way you’re using your hands could be to blame.

Holding your own hands with the correct tension will enable elastic communication with your horse’s mouth. 

In this module, you’ll learn how to use the large muscles and the natural tension of the hand and how to fix common problems!  Come away with actionable steps to create a good conversation between you and your horse.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn. 

Module 6: Apply Better Breathing Patterns for Accurate Aids.

How to use your breathing to improve your overall position and coordinate with your aids!

Do you know that breathing the “right” way can help you be a more effective rider?

If your horse has difficulty with transitions, turning, or doesn’t respond to your seat aids – it may have to do with the way you breathe, when you breathe, or how it coordinates with your aids.

The way you breathe and coordinate it with your other aids will make you a more effective rider. 

In this module, you’ll learn how to breathe in a way that engages the rest of your position, when to breathe to be most effective and how to coordinate your breathing with your other aids for crisp, accurate responses from your horse! Come away with actionable steps to create a more accurate, effective ride.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

Module 7: Optimize Your Hips for Better Engagement and Security in the Saddle.

How to get the ride you really want by perfecting your hips!

Do you have trouble sitting the trot or canter? Do you feel like you're bouncing all over the place rather than in the saddle following your horse’s movement?

If your horse loses his topline or throws his head around during your ride and YOU have difficulty sitting steadily in the saddle – your hips may be the cause!

Holding your own hands with the correct tension will enable elastic communication with your horse’s mouth.

In this module, you’ll learn proper hip angle, engaging your seatbones to place your hips in the right position, and how to sit around and into your horse creates more security!  Come away with actionable steps to keep you safer in the saddle and create better communication and harmony between you and your horse.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn. 

Module 8: Activate Your Lower Legs and Calves Properly for a Smoother, More Active Ride.

How to use your lower legs, calves, and ankles to create quicker reactions from your horse!

Do you close your leg with barely a reaction from your horse – or worse yet, no reaction at all? Does he always feel behind the leg?

If your horse is sluggish after you aid or slow to respond, has unclear flying changes, behind the leg, is uneven in the turns, and has uneven lateral work – your lower leg position or usage may be the cause.

Using the entire inside of the lower leg will enable you to communicate smoothly and consistently with your horse.

In this module, you’ll learn how to use your lower leg properly and coordinate with your hips and seatbones to improve communication with your horse! Come away with actionable steps to get a more forward horse, crisper responses, and steady engagement in your ride.

>>We’ll even give you a printable pdf checklist to take with you to the barn.

I’m finally closer to being the rider I want to be and completely pain free!

“I decided to get back to riding to get fitter, but I was so out of shape. I couldn't move, I couldn't post, I was so unbalanced. I was in I was in so much pain, every ride. I wasn't getting anywhere. I’d be up in the middle of the night and I’d be anxiety ridden.

And I got to a point where I just felt like something had to change.

I’m finally much closer to being the rider that I want to be. Not only am I riding completely pain free, I can walk, trot, canter, jump … all these things that seemed literally impossible.

Questions?

You’ve tried to fix it with your instructor and it's just not working. How will Move Like A Rider be different?

One of the great things about Move Like A Rider is that it isn’t like ANY lesson you have taken.

Most coaches don’t address the needs specific to the riders body. You need someone who can give you the understanding you need and the exercises to change your motor patterns to fix your broken ride.

Move Like A Rider can do that!

I hear you, you’re still saying, “I’m too busy.” Ok, first off, you’re never too busy to stand for the bodyworker to do acupuncture/chiro/massage on your horse when he needs it, right? Well, maybe he won’t need it as often if you weren’t sitting on one seatbone all the time, or collapsing one side, or crooked in the saddle – sorry, tough love – but you see my point.

You will get what you put into it. The videos are short, give tons of visuals, and the exercises don’t require equipment or any additional financial investment. Plus, you can work through the content in the privacy of your living room where no one can see you lose your balance (except maybe the dog!).

You got this! Don’t you want to be the rider your horse deserves?
