In an article in the latest number of the magazine “Tidningen Ridsport” (Swedish) Ingrid Andersson writes: It is important for all types of riders to have a good balance. It is important as well for the durability of the horses. Within the veterinary medicine, they talk about rider related problems as a cause of strain injuries with the horses. There has been an increased consciousness of the riders balance in recent years. There are many ongoing projects on riding-schools and by trainers to increase the interest for a better seat and good balance. Many riders have started to do workout at gyms or use a ball for balancing exercises in front of the TV. Now there is a possibility to take one step further! To combine balance and vibration training with the Vibrosphere® - a vibration plate with a rounded bottom.
- This is the second generation vibration training and we have just finished a concept for riders, explains Jeanette Andersson, Managing Director at ProMedVi, who promotes the product. You can sit on a saddle and train as you were riding.
Footnote: The “saddle” is an accessory to the Vibrosphere® and will be on the market in the beginning of 2008.
