Sylvia Loch's Balance & Bodywork for the Horse & Rider DVD allows the viewer a revolutionary insight into how to ride and school a horse from the perspective of perfect 'Balance and Feel'. For most people these concepts may seem out of reach except for the expert. In this ground-breaking DVD, Sylvia Loch demonstrates that this is not at all the case. Whilst Nature's laws, especially gravity, can work against us, they can also work for us! Both on and off the horse and in the Balance & Bodywork DVD, Sylvia Loch shows you how!

Step by step we are shown how to tap into our inner strengths. By mastering certain body postures through Sylvia Loch's unique set of exercises on the ground, the rider can subconsciously 'log' that feeling into the brain. Similar to NLP, this method opens up other learning powers which will be easier to source.

Without stress, the rider naturally begins to establish a clearer pattern of riding behaviour. This transforms into better feel and balance once back in the saddle. The end result allows the correct cues and techniques to be shown to the horse for each and every transition or request. From swinging through the back to improved forwardness, to rein back, to all lateral work, to counter canter, flying changes and a long section on Passage, the feeling becomes easier to recall.

Built up over many years observation, Sylvia Loch has worked in this way with hundreds of riders at home and abroad. Her Invisible Riding or Weight-Aids Workshops have transformed the riding of movements for many dressage riders and their horses. From Novice to Grand Prix dressage all her students and colleagues have remarked on better results and heightened understanding.

Not only for dressage, Balance and Bodywork will improve your general position and fitness for hacking and jumping too. Whether for better engagement, taking a line or effective turning, it provides a wonderful teaching tool for riders and their instructors alike.

The clever layout of this DVD with its many menus helps you to choose the various movements and exercises which will provide you with the tools for the athletic development of a happier horse, whatever his breed, age, shape and size.
