A rider's postural strength and cohesion comes from developing strength and tone in the core muscles. These muscles stabilize the pelvis, spine and ribcage, and control the position of the rider's pelvis and pelvic alignment; the pelvis being the main interface with the movement of the horse's back.

A specific exercise plan designed by EquiCanine™ that is focused on rider position and aims to increase muscle tone, strength, flexibility and coordination of the lower core muscles (abdominopelvic) and upper core muscles (thoracic and back) will help to address strength deficits.

The CoreX Equine Level Belt and App, available from EquiCanine™, will prompt rider awareness and provide riders with real time feedback regarding their riding posture and pelvic position. This aids riders in engaging their core muscles to bring their body, and therefore their riding position, into better alignment and greater balance.

The core muscles that stabilise the lower torso (pelvis and hips) are comprised of the abdominal wall muscles (rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and the obliques), psoas, Iliacus, gluteus muscles and quadratus lumborum. The core muscles that stabilize the upper body and head include the erector spinae, latissimus dorsi along with chest and shoulder muscles.
