On Saturday, February 18 Tannoch Stables in Palacerigg hosted a Biomechanics Day with BHS Scotland and Centaur Biomechanics.
Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics is the UK’s leading expert in the field of biomechanics – the scientific analysis of a rider’s movement while in the saddle, which helps riders work in harmony with their horse’s body. The study also tyook into account various other factors such as farriery, tack, external environment and surfaces.
The event went down very well with those who attended, with a lot of feedback praising Russel’s presentation and people saying they learned a lot and felt inspired.
The day started off with a presentation and question and answer session, with the afternoon focusing on rider analysis using video techniques and Visualise jackets.
The demonstration riders were Kirsty Logue, Gillian Sleight, Michelle Canney and Samantha Binnie and Tannoch Stables Riding Club provided lunch and refreshments.
