The online course 30-Day Core Fitness for Horses provides a step-by-step guide to tune up your horse’s overall fitness, postural muscles, and balance.
Jec Ballou, a renowned horse trainer and top-selling author, has announced the launch of a new online training program. Her first course, 30-Day Core Fitness for Horses, provides a step-by-step guide to tune up your horse’s overall fitness, postural muscles, and balance.
“I am eager to bring my training to students all over the world with my new online course,” says Ballou. “My clinics and one-on-one training sessions can only help a limited number of people, and I want everybody to benefit from my teachings and techniques. With this new online course, I am inviting people everywhere to make your horse more comfortable, athletic, and fun to ride using the exercises you’ll learn in 30-Day Core Fitness for Horses.”
Through this course, students will learn how to optimize periods of lesser activity due to poor weather, limited schedules, or post-injury. Each week includes a “walk workout” routine to perform three to five times during the week in addition to three calisthenic exercises that target a horse’s deep, stabilizing muscles. All exercises can easily be modified for solely groundwork, which is beneficial for horses that are recovering from injury and can’t be ridden, but that still need to move. All exercises can be performed in a paddock or large yard, and a full arena is not required.
“The benefit of an online course is that you can make it work with your schedule,” says Ballou. “The course is self-paced and there are no preset beginning or end dates. You can start the course whenever is convenient for you, and it’s no problem if you need to take a break partway through. Just pickup where you left off! You’ll even be able to access the course after you complete the program, so you can refer back to it anytime. The lessons are short and simple, but highly effective when practiced with consistency. This course will keep you accountable to your horse’s fitness, give you small manageable tasks, and help you develop long-standing routines for the future. I can’t wait to hear how you and your horse benefit from this training!”
30-Day Core Fitness for Horses is available now for an enrollment fee of $90.00. For more information, visit https://jecballou.thinkific.com/ .
