Thoracic Thursday 

  
A preview of something you may see on a #mobilitymonday but for today let’s call it #thoracicthursday 😏
Riders- do you find your upper back gets stiff and/or sore during or after a ride? Adding some t-spine rotations to your warm up might help. It will also intrigue the heck out of your horse. Do 2-3 sets of 10 rotations on each side.. Making sure  your hips stay still. 

This is great for warming up and mobilizing the thoracic spine, lats, ribs, and getting the body ready to ride in good posture. I find this helps upper back stiffness and soreness during and post-ride. Give it a try and let me know what you notice! 

Tag me in a video or photo of you doing your pre-ride warm-up, and you might win a free online consult!
