About the Author

Liza Randall combines her two loves as an equestrian writer and Pilates coach from her case in the Cotswolds. Author of Pilates for Equestrians and former editor of British Eventing Life magazine, she has a passion for eventing, whether watching or competing. Liza is an advocate of classes being available to riders of all abilities, and worked with British Eventing when the BE80 Training series was launched. As an equestrian Pilates coach, Liza trains amateur and professional riders alike, teaching the recruitment of core muscles to develop balance, strength and coordination.


A guide to how Pilates can help you develop a more effective riding position and achieve better competition results.
Pilates for Equestrians shows how Pilates can benefit all horse riders - whether you're a leisure rider or a professional equestrian.
It's good to see a book on this subject directly aimed at the equestrian, although all would benefit from its simple wisdom. With clear photos and explanations of the individual exercises this book could be a great help in improving the suppleness of the nation's riders!...It would be eminently suitable for all those who have made a resolution to improve suppleness and core stability.
