Do you sit on one seat bone more than the other?
Are you sitting off in one direction?
Does your saddle slide over to one side?
Introducting the Equiwedge to sit straight!
The Equiwedge helps riders to sit straight by helping to re-distribute the riders’ weight equally on both seat bones, resulting in more equal weight distribution in the stirrups. Try sitting in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Place a book under one seat bone and feel how that has made that side of your body shorter. The same theory is behind the Equiwedge. For example, if when you ride your left shoulder drops and your left heel comes up, you will want the Equiwedge under your right flap; this effectively shortens your right side and lengthens the left side of your body to re-establish even balance.
When changing rein, the left side effectiveness will be the same as the right.
The Equiwedge will help to enhance your seatbone awareness.
The Equiwedge subtlety changes the riders position until it changes the riders muscle memory to put them in the right place.
Form good habits with utilizing the Equiwedge as a temporary aid. Muscle memory places us in the same position every ride.
Once your rider position changes take the Equiwedge out. Fall back to old habits? Put the Equiwedge back in!
Love this. Have used with several students whose horses drift over jumps, right or left instead of staying in middle of jump. I placed on side that horse drifted toward and they all have jumped straight. Amazing!
I tested out prototypes of this in Aiken when I first returned to saddle after my ankle surgery. It made a noticeable difference for me being able to step into that stirrup then, so I am sure the finished product is even better.
This Equiwedge has made a huge difference for my crooked body allowing my muscles to be retrained! Well worth it! Check it out and Give it a try!
I felt a great difference in my riding. My legs told me so as well.
