Day 16: Stay Loose

Sometimes we forget that we are athletes just like our horses, but when I’m on the road vacationing or teaching a clinic, my body definitely starts to remind me that my muscles can get tight and I need to stretch out after hours on a plane or standing teaching. The main areas I feel tension are in my back and hips, especially after multiple days out of the saddle. My secret is the tennis ball I bring in my luggage. This small tool is great to put between your back and the wall to work out those knots. You can also roll it along your hips if they start to bother you.
