Maeve Sheridan – Activate Your Seat

Activate Your Seat is an exercise programme designed specifically for horse riders. This bunji along with Maeve’s directed exercise videos are just an amazing bit of kit – and I speak from experience!

This exercise programme, working into the resistance of the bungi, targets the seat muscles leading to a more secure, supple and stronger seat and ultimately helping to achieve a more independent seat. The bungi attaches into any door frame and can be used at home, at the yard and at competitions to pre-activate the right muscles before you ride, improving your performance in the saddle.

It’s just fantastic and can help improve any rider and I found it eased my stiff back muscles too. Just brilliant.
