Back Exercises

We use our backs so much in riding; we absorb the motion, we follow the motion, and use seat/weight aids to influence the motion. The stronger your back, the more precise your aids can be.

How hard do you hit the ground when you fall?

This is just for fun. You can compare falling from a horse standing still, a horse running, and getting bucked off high above the horse. (Javascript calculations)

Mounting Block

A good mounting block is a useful tool, but they're so expensive in the catalogs. Here's a tall 3-step mounting block that I made for less than $20, with a description of how I made it.
