Background: With effective postural positioning a rider
strives to be harmonious with the horse for optimum performance and communication. It is thought that asymmetry within a rider’s posture has consequences on rider-horse harmony. However, limited empirical studies report on typical postural characteristics of riders and the potential effects of asymmetric postures. Furthermore studies are yet to report on corrective methods such as taping in order to positively adjust asymmetric postures. A study of female riders postures whilst riding sitting trot initiated in the hope of understanding postural characteristics and taping as a method of correction, is reported here.
Aim: To investigate the effects of athletic taping on asymmetric postures of female equestrian riders during sitting
