The ANKY® Free Rider offers a wonderful exercise which stimulates the cardiovascular system and the body as a whole. The unique combination of movements of both horse and rider, requires much effort and coordination, which stimulate the balance within your whole body.
When a horse moves, the rider continuously tries to maintain his/her balance on the horse’s back as he/she is constantly thrown off‐balance. In a effort to re‐balance, this exercise causes the riders’ deep muscles to contract and relax. These muscles are not accessible for training in traditional physical therapy.
The three-‐dimensional rhythmical movements of the ANKY® Free Rider work on the deep postural muscles of the trunk, pelvis, hips and the adductor muscles of the thighs. Other muscles, such as the quadriceps and hamstring, are also worked on, depending on the speed of the horse. The ANKY® Free Rider helps you to find a better balance, core-‐stability and will at the same time help you loose weight by slimming your waist and hips.
Consult a doctor before using the ANKY® Free Rider if you are: Pregnant . Recovering and/or suffering from an injury. Under treatment of a doctor/therapist.
