Activation of the Gluteus Medius is essential before you ride. This muscle is critical in controlling lateral stability ie: to stop your seat dropping to the outside on a circle or corner. Gluteus Medius also provides the connection switch to help activate the other stability muscles located around the pelvis and trunk, without gluteus medius activating these other muscles cannot engage fully.
After developing a system of pelvis asymmetry analysis called Testt™️, Andy Thomas has put together a tool kit of Activation exercises and products in a handy go-to bag.
Try Glut Med activation 15 minutes before riding (with your hat and boots on ready to go!), follow the recommended exercises by using the Trackactive App. Once your order has been processed, you will receive an email link - follow the instructions to access the exercises.

Client feedback :
“Between my very first ridden assessment with Andy, and my follow up three weeks later, my one sided ness had improved out of all recognition. My trainer told me he couldn’t believe how well I was riding and, most importantly of all, the canter pirouettes, half passes and changes had moved up to an 8! Doing the exercises daily and particularly just before you ride dramatically improves performance of both rider and therefore the horse.”
