Equi-Motion was founded by Emma Mathlin & Kristin Dean, experienced and passionate practitioners with qualifications in human & equine physiotherapy, exercise physiology & biomechanics.

Riders themselves, they have many years of experience working with both horses and riders from beginners to Olympic athletes. Combining this experience with their in-depth knowledge of both human and horse anatomy & movement, they bring a new dimension to teaching and training the biomechanics of horse and rider. 

Rather than just identify postural and alignment faults in your riding or your horse's movement, we actually establish the cause of the problem and provide you with practical solutions to manage any identified issues, be it posture correctional cues, manual therapy or a tailored exercise program.

Biomechanics is the science of movement of a living body,

including how muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments work together to produce movement. At Equi-Motion we place a very strong emphasis on the science of what we do, focusing heavily on research and evidence based practice in our work.

Rehab & Training Products

We are proud to be the Australian distributor of the Equiband™ System, an innovative design that can help improve core stability in the horse

The Equiband™ system has been designed following extensive research into core stability training in the horse by Equicore Concepts. Unlike traditional training systems, many of which have attachments onto the bridle and encourage the horse's head to come down with pressure, the Equiband™ system stimulates activation of the abdominal and hindquarter muscles, encouraging the horse to lift and round through through the back and work from "back to front". A recent study in the use of the Equiband™ system suggests that it has a positive effect on dynamic stabilisation of the spine.
