While riding is a great way to enjoy an active lifestyle, on its own, it’s not enough to condition and tone the body to the degree we need, and then your horse must make up the fitness gap in our physical partnership.


If our reflexes are slow, if our bodies fatigue, if our position collapses, if tension patterns appear, then the horse suffers repetitive asymmetrical strain or develops compensatory movement habits.

In Fit to Ride in 9 Weeks, certified personal trainer and riding coach Heather Sansom gives you a 9-week plan to achieve the straightness, suppleness, strength, and stamina you need to ride your best.

With hundreds of one-of-a-kind illustrations depicting accurate musculature on the rider’s body, and dozens of proven exercises organized in a progressive fitness program with easy-to-use schedule charts, Sansom’s book is the key to enjoying the ride, being fair to your horse, and getting into fabulous shape—in just a couple of months.
