Riding technique courses for women – A practical field report
Do women need special courses in riding technique? – My response is: yes, but…, this is because my experience leads me to a differentiated view of the subject. Courses for women make sense in many respects: women and men differ in terms of anatomy, biomechanics, the learning and correction of movement. In some aspects, the genders can even learn from each other. What requires closer attention in riding technique courses for women are the fine adjusting screws in group dynamics and psychology.
