   The horse does not belong to us. The only thing we have is the duty to take care of it properly. [Indian proverb]   

Physical preparation for horse riding

If you believe that a physical preparation is useless for riding, it is without doubt that you have never put your behind on a saddle!
Indeed riding is a real sport that requires a good physical condition.

You need to work your abdominal and lumbar adductors while not forgetting that your quadriceps, your hamstrings (the muscles in the back of the thighs) and your glutes will have to support the work of the adductors.

A vast preparation work that Laurent, your sports coach at Body-Up, can then plan with you sessions according to your available time, your physical abilities as well as the objectives you want to set for both your simple walks and to face your opponents in equestrian competitions.

This is a modal.

Reveal makes these very easy to summon and dismiss. The close button is simply an anchor with a unicode character icon and a class of close-reveal-modal. Clicking anywhere outside the modal will also dismiss it.

Finally, if your modal summons another Reveal modal, the plugin will handle that for you gracefully.
