Rider Analysis - Improve your Riding & Horse's Way of Going
Dressage and Jump Sessions Now Available
The way the rider sits on the horse will have a dramatic effect on its soundness, performance and development. Our rider analysis sessions are designed for riders of all levels to help improve the rider's position and horse's way of going. With the use of high speed video cameras (capturing 20 x faster than the human eye), Visualise training jackets and Quintic software the rider's position and horse's way of going can be constructively analysed. Russell, who carries out the analysis, is a keen rider himself and has worked all over the world helping riders improve their position and horse's performance. Russell's passion and easy going character will put you at ease and ensure you get the best possible results out of the session.

How it Works:
Riders are asked to wear a Visualise training jacket and carry out a series of movements, such as centre lines from both the left and right rein. We then analyse the high speed video files - riders can see their efforts immediately whilst mounted - using sophisticated software the rider's position and horse's way of going can be analysed. From here we select key areas on which to work. The session combines the use of training and video analysis, this is one of the key aspects of our sessions as it allows riders to see instantly any improvements.
An important benefit of working with Centaur is that you are working with riders, trainers and regular competitors, so we understand the difficulties of riding and as a result have a sympathetic approach to achieving a better position and ability to ride. Russell is a UK CC Coach who has competed in both show jumping and dressage. He has carried out extensive research in rider positioning and saddle fit and, in addition, he works with the British Equestrian Federations World Class and excel Talent Programme.
