Are you finding that you are short on time between balancing time at the stable and your have-to's during each day? Cross-training at the gym, specifically for enhancing your riding, is often one of the first items to be cut from a hectic schedule. As equestrians, almost all of us will choose time at the stable vs. time at the gym when our time is pinched.
Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) has just released a new video titled "Get Fit with a 5-Minute Barn Workout" featuring equestrian fitness professionals Ali and Mari of Mind.Body.Vault. This workout is quick and uses items readily available at your stable to assist with your position, symmetry and balance. The more aligned our position, the better our horses can perform!
To read more about Mari and Ali's expertise in this field, the premise behind MIND.BODY.VAULT and their significant collaboration with the FEI to enhance health & wellness in equestrian sport, read Street to Stable's FEATURE ARTICLE interviewing these passionate young professionals.
Additionally, make sure to subscribe to FEI as the organization continues to add quality educational resources to their relevant and expanding library for equestrians of all levels and disciplines.
