Rider Biomechanical Static Assessment

1. Before:
Summary - Asymmetry
- Dropped right shoulder
- Shorter through right side
- Fixed left side
2. After Some Correction:
A little improvement after
15 mins of work, but some
way to go yet
3. In this picture the hip
is forward
 
Dynamic Assessment
Static issues, once moving, carry over
into dynamic posture. Right shoulder
remains rotated forward compared
to left shoulder. Right hip is forward
altering the balance of rider, which in
turn will affect the horse's centre of
gravity and
balance.
Looking at the resulting right arm -
significant mobility of right side.
Left side remains fixed.
See how the horse's head carriage is

is affected - tilted/rotated at the poll.
