Balancing the Head and Neck with Wendy Murdoch


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 3

Your head is a rather heavy object sitting at the top of your spinal cord.

Finding proper alignment reduces muscle tension and strain. In this case, riders may also breathe easier in their improved position. These exercises can be practiced anytime, on or off the horse.
