About Equestrian Pilates

My name is Sue Gould-Wright and I set up Equestrian Pilates in 2007

I had been teaching ‘normal’ Pilates for several years when we relocated to the beautiful county of Northumberland where, after having had a very long break from riding, I got back in the saddle.  I soon realised that everything I had learnt doing and teaching Pilates had improved my riding ten-fold: I was able to sit better, ‘feel’ more, isolate muscles and my overall body awareness was infinitely more developed than years ago.

Knowing how it could help riders I starting developing and promoting my ‘rider specific’ Pilates and have subsequently worked with riders of all ages, abilities and disciplines both here in the North East of England and around the UK.  And that is the reason behind this site:  I now have clients far and wide and just cannot physically be everywhere!

The aim of the Members Area is to allow you to access mat-based exercise videos which you can then do in your own time, when and where is convenient for you.  The exercises will progress month on month (well, technically, 4-weeks on 4-weeks!) to allow you to work at a sensible pace and build a library of reference material to refer back to.  Unlike your weekly class, you can access the videos time and time again – one of the biggest ‘complaints’ I have from current class clients is they leave the class and cannot remember the exercises in between times! No more excuses guys and gals……

My book was released in April 2015; a very practical workbook as all the exercises are based on the yard using everything from bales of shavings to tail bandages!

If you would like to work with me ‘in the flesh’ then do keep an eye on the Diary page – or drop me an email to arrange a visit to your yard; I am happy to travel as I love meeting and working with new clients.
