As a life-long rider, coach, certified instructor of 20 years, and Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), I understand the sport and the skills needed to optimize rider performance. I also understand the equestrian lifestyle, as many of us do more in the barn, besides riding.
Do you have anything physically stopping you
from achieving your best while riding?
Let’s fix what’s preventing you from achieving
the goals you dream about!
Riders tend to be so busy taking care of their horses, they often fail to take care of themselves. Riders at every level, need to develop the mentality of an athlete. As such, we should fine tune our bodies, just as a musician fine tunes her instrument. How your body is functioning is a direct reflection on how your horse will perform.

It's time to check your musculoskeletal system and be sure your body is in balance and working at optimum level.
As a professional rider and LMT, I have the knowledge and understanding of movement patterns associated with riding that can get your body balanced and moving well in the saddle. I can identify, address, and relieve conditions that may affect you while riding.
Here are the top ten reasons to see the Rider’s Mechanic:
1. Relieve or completely eliminate aches and pains experienced through your horse’s movement.
2. Increase range of motion in joints
3. Aid muscles that fire late or do not fire at all
4. Improve flexibility and strength in muscles
5. Enhance respiration and circulation
6. Boost athletic stamina and performance
7. Advance muscle recovery for repetitively used muscles
8. Therapeutically relieve stress and improve focus
9. Improve musculoskeletal balance
10. Stretch tight muscles
Sports Massage and Bodywork is essential for the professional and non-professional rider. Not only does it increase body awareness, which refines the rider’s connection with the horse, it also aids in the holistic development of the rider.
