Split Squats is an excellent exercise for equestrian athletes to develop and maintain excellent hip mobility.  Here's how to do it:

  • Stand up straight with your hands on your hips and shoulders pushed down.
  • Step forward with one leg, taking a slightly larger than normal step (See Position 1).  
  • Lower your body until the front thigh is parallel to the ground (See Position 2). Only go half way if you find this too hard.
  • The back knee should be bent and lowered to the ground but donít let it touch.
  • Keep your upper body upright position at all times by contracting your glutes and abs.
  • Repeat this 10 times, then change legs.
