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

There’s nothing else to do other than:
✔️Read it. ✔️Understand it. ✔️Act on it.

Secondary drowning in dogs

Beware of throwing a ball for dogs to catch in the water- I know we have all done it!

"Quite simply put, inhaling water while swimming causes excess fluid to build up in the lungs, making breathing hard. This can “drown” your dog hours or even days after swimming. ... Difficulty breathing, irregular heartbeat, skin and gums may change colour, drooling and coughing are the other things to keep an eye out for"
