Stable Core Method™,
Pilates for Equestrians

Are YOU ready for the 2024 season?

Now's the time to take your riding to the next level

Would you benefit from the Stable Core Method™?

  • Do you find that your saddle slips to one side every time you ride?
  • Does your horse have problems with right or left lead canter departures?
  • Do you have a hard time keeping your horse in a consistent gait?
  • Does your horse drop itʼs shoulder on the circle?
  • Do you find your horse is better when it circles one direction more than another? 
  • Is your horse heavy on the forehand?
  • Does he lean on your leg?
  • Do you find looking “effortless” takes too much effort?

 

All of these problems and many more can be solved with the Stable Core Method™!

Body mechanics and alignment are paramount to horsemanship yet often are lost in our work. While the idea of body mechanics is not new, the Stable Core™ approach is.

Through the Stable Core Method™ you will learn to identify your mechanical patterns, how they affect the horse and how to fix your problem areas.

Learn stretches to release tension areas before and after riding and how to use your breath more effectively while working with your horse. The Stable Core Method™ is a Pilates based Method for riders that will increase your feel, timing and balance.

Create more ease for your body and your horse, with Stable Core Method™!

Stable Core™ Students say

Pam has improved my scores and brought my competition to a whole new level. I have found connections I never knew I was missing. On top of that she is a fantastic person and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Brenna DeGeer

Pam brings her clients back into their bodies and guides them to creating awareness around their movement and energetic patterns. By helping people to recognize and find their own body dynamics she helps create the shifts needed to create a more balanced rider physically and energetically and spiritually. She strives to guide people to their own body knowledge rather than dictating it to them.

Marti Dietrich - Level 3 Dressage Instructor

Pam these are just a few things that have changed from working with you: I am stronger. I can move a few bales of hay when I need to. I have less sciatic pain, low back pain, less pain in shoulders. I have more range of movement. I have more stamina and am able to work and ride better. I ride better …. use my core muscles. Now that I know what my core muscles are. I have more body awareness, Thank you for all you have done.
