Welcome to Chiltern Rider Pilates…

Dr Tracy Crook – Physiotherapist, Pilates & Equipilates™ Trainer

Pilates for riders has gained in popularity amongst the riding community in recent years with many elite competition riders regarding Pilates as an essential part of their riding routine. They recognise that not only does it enhance their own performance but the athletic performance of their horse.

As a Chartered & Veterinary Physiotherapist, Tracy fully understands the anatomy and biomechanics of the horse and rider, and therefore is ideally suited to help you achieve your riding goals.  So if you care about your horses’ wellbeing and want to improve your horses’ way of going – why not have a Ridden Pilates Assessment, join a Pilates for Rider class or have a One to One session?

Group Pilates Classes are currently run at Wendover Heights Veterinary Centre (Wendover), Widmer Equestrian Centre (Lacey Green), Woodrow Sports Centre (Amersham).

One to One Pilates sessions are provided in the Holmer Green Clinic (near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire).

See the Pilates page for full details.

Tracy also provides “Rider Analysis & Rider Pilates Clinics” with Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics and “Rider and Pilates Clinics” with Rob Waine Dressage.

“In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, in 30 you will have a whole new body”. Joseph Pilates

Yes this does happen- albeit rare but I personally know of 3 casesYesterday after a day filled with fun, fetch and swimming in Lake Windermere, Myself, Lucy & Tiggy had to say goodbye to our best friend Max.

He collapsed and was rushed to the nearest vets where he was diagnosed immediately with Water Intoxication and put on drips of sodium, potassium and mannitol to increase his electrolytes and relieve pressure on his brain.

After 7 hours of determination from the vets and nurses, Max was unable to pull through.

“Water Intoxication is a relatively rare but frequently fatal condition in dogs. At highest risk are dogs that enjoy playing in the water for long stretches.”

We are so unbelievably devastated that a simple game of fetch in the water, something we had done a hundred times before, resulted in such a perfect day turning into our worst nightmare.

Water Intoxication was something we knew nothing about. At this time of year, so much awareness is spread about not leaving dogs in hot cars but no one ever mentions the hazardous effects of your dog ingesting too much water whilst playing.

We have had to learn the hard way and all we can do now is spread awareness of this terrible condition in the hope that other dog owners are informed.

Please share this post to spread awareness of Water Intoxication and save lives

We Love You Maxy xxx
