Evaluation The most important information needed for the KIEPBalance program is gathered through the evaluation process. Our first priority is to gather data provided by the horse owner regarding any training concerns and/or injuries. After the completion of the owner’s interview an overall physiological analysis is conducted. This includes a complete anatomical body evaluation, followed by observing the horse’s biomechanics in daily functions, i.e. work in hand, round pen work or lunging, and most importantly while being ridden.
Restorative Component Once the evaluation is completed, the time has come to begin restoring or reestablishing kinetic and biomechanical balance. Restoration is attained by a combination of bodywork including rebalancing muscle structures and correcting posture for both horse and rider. The rider is directed in correctly using their body’s biomechanics to influence the horse regardless of their particular riding discipline. It is through appropriate use of the rider’s core muscles that rebalancing occurs, thus balance between rider and horse can be achieved.
C.A.R.E. Continued Active Rehabilitative Exercise The unique aspect of the KIEPBalance program that no other program offers is the perpetual involvement of the horse owner in the progress of the horse’s physical development and rehabilitation. This is accomplished through a regimen of specific exercises (as needed for both horse and rider) along with nutritional balancing and KIEPBalance rechecks as needed. It is through a synergy of correct biomechanics paired with neuromuscular rehabilitation that equine athletes and their riders can reach their full potential while maintaining a positive attitude and healthy body.
