Comparing Horse and Rider Anatomy

As humans, we look different than our horses. Obviously. We walk on two feet, they stand on four hooves. They have long necks and big heads, we have short necks, and well, still rather big heads.

But if you look at our most basic anatomy, our skeletons, we are surprisingly similar to our horses.

Besides understanding how we need to move to be stable and balanced, When we recognize how similar our anatomy is to our horse, we see that our riding position directly impacts the position of the horse. If our back is hollow, our horse is hollow. If we inadvertently lean left, our horse will likely drift left.

If we tighten somewhere, the horse will often tighten in a corresponding part of their body.

In this video, I highlight a few areas of corresponding anatomy between horse and person – they may surprise you!
