By Janice Dulak. While they use different terms, both Pilates and dressage share an emphasis on the torso, or "Powerhouse" in Pilates-speak, and achieving core strength, good posture and muscle flexibility. The goals of a Pilates program are often identical to what riders try to achieved in the saddle in the sport of dressage.
As did the book, this DVD helps dressage riders develop the core strength, good posture and muscle flexibility integral to success in the saddle using pilates exercises. Basic and advanced exercises are included, as well as pilates exercises in the saddle.
