Hylofit Training Club Week 7: It's Okay to Take a Step Back

We’ve made it to the final week of the Hylofit Training Club. Congratulations! No matter what your starting goal was, dedicating the time to completing a 7-week plan like this requires a lot of commitment.

That being said, we know that many of you may not be riding or able to see your horse a lot right now. It's hard to think of the goals that are put on hold right now, but the most important priority is your health and safety. 

We wanted to finish out Week 7 of the Hylofit Training Club — but if you've been forced to abandon your routine for the time being, we promise we'll be right here waiting for you. 

So while we're including the ride plan for Week 7, we encourage you to take a step back, stay off your phone, and just be with your horse. That connection with a horse is what brought us to riding in the first place. 

When the time is right, we'll be ready to start back up with you again and help you get #BackInTheSaddle.

Stay safe, and stay healthy. ❤️

Exercise of the Week:

We want to be conscious of the fact that some riders may not be able to ride or even go to the barn much right now. With that in mind, for this week’s exercise we have some in-home shoulder strength and mobility from Coach Sando:
