The Dynamic Rider System is a unique Pilates-based program of integrated flexibility, strength and postural position exercises to help female equestrians get the most from the time they spend with their horses. DRS has been developed by Midkiff in collaboration with certified Pilates Method instructor and lifetime horsewoman Maggie Parker. Read Press Release with more information

Subscribers to the new The Dynamic Rider System (DRS) will receive a series of easy-to-use installments detailing body part specific exercises and related riding techniques.

"This is a unique program fully integrating the nationally acclaimed Pilates Method with effective riding specifically for women," Midkiff says. "This is a total exercise and biomechanical solution that will enable female equestrians to achieve better form, function and comfort with their horses."

Over the course of progressive learning installments, it will teach the female rider, both in and out of the saddle, body movement patterns and awareness, body alignment, breathing with exercise, development of core strength, stability and flexibility of the pelvis and shoulder girdle, spinal rotation, flexion and extension and much more. A unique aspect of this system is that it can improve the rider's physical integration both in riding and in everyday life.

The first installment, "Finding Your Foundation: Insert 1", is now available. The initial package includes an introduction to the DRS and the Pilates Method, a full-color, fold out instructional exercise pamphlet, and cover art for a reference binder to store the installments. You may provide your own System Binder or purchase one from Women & Horses (see below for details).
