Re: [RC] Help! - Exercise advise - Vicki Austin
Yoga for equestrians is a good book on the subject of riders. Stretches
that runners do before and after a run is REALLY good. those are what I
do, they help the old arthritic body (like mine). Glucosamine
Hydrocloride for humans helps (if I am out of it I just used 1/10th of my
horses formular) Getting off every now and then also helps during a ride.
I am sure others have other ideas. Hope this helps. Vicki Austin
