Pegasus Physiotherapy provides rider physiotherapy sessions at the home of Equestrian simulators Racewood HQ in Tarporley, Cheshire. 
Every horse owner works so hard to keep their horse in tip top condition but sometimes forgets about themselves. Recent research has showed that riders in pain can effect the horses movement but people often don't seek treatment for themselves. Falling off, repetitive stable duties, work related conditions can all cause both short and long term pain and problems. 
Pegasus specialises in rider physiotherapy with assessment of the riders injury or pain in addition to their posture and movement. We are very excited to be working at the state of the art Racewood training facility  where we can assess you on either the eventing or dressage horse.
 
The data we get from the equestrian simulators provides information on your weight in the saddle (both left to right and front to back), rein pressure, position and pressure of leg aids. This information is available at a stand still, walk, trot and canter. The eventing simulator is the only one in the North West and provides additional information about your position when show jumping or doing cross country. 
The session will include an assessment of your postural strengths and weakness, looking for areas of asymmetry and stiffness to then be able to tailor treatment and exercises to improving your riding position and strength.  Once you are accustomed to the different paces on the horse there will be a short test where the software will then collaborate the date to provide a graph which can be then used as a starter point for your session.
 
During the session there may be manual therapy treatment or exercises off the horse in addition to exercises on the horse to work on your riding. The session will be tailored bespoke to what you want to work out and you will have a home exercise program prescribed and advice for when in the saddle. The focus can be on alignment, movement, post operative or post injury return to riding, specific riding issues or general posture.
 
An initial assessment (1 hour) is £125 for the hour with follow ups for £100.
 
Joint sessions (1 hour) are available once you have both had an initial assessment if you would like to do it with a friend and will be £60 each.
This is a special offer for those travelling to Cheshire for sessions- 6 sessions in 2-3 days for £550.
 
Please wear clean boots and fitted clothes for the assessment
 
Max weight of simulator is 16 stone

The mechanical horse sessions are at the Racewood Training Centre, Tarporley (CW6 9AR) and can be on the eventer or dressage horse
