Reviews on her newest book

The New Anatomy of Rider Connection: Structural Balance for Rider and Horse
Paperback
 – September 26, 2017

:

“The book you hold in your hand unravels the mystery of becoming one with your horse. Mary's many years of experience working with and watching every kind of rider from the beginner to the Olympian is distilled into this beautiful, practical, and comprehensive book for the rider who wants to inhabit that connection, that love, between human and animal…It is a personal pleasure to see the Anatomy Trains scheme extended so beautifully, practically, and accurately beyond where I ever imagined it could go.” —Thomas W. Myers, Creator and Author of Anatomy Trains


Modern rider biomechanics begins by explaining fascia–the “Cinderella” of body tissues. Until recently, fascia was ignored by science, consigned to its apparent role as the body's “packing material.” However, research now shows that, in reality, this biological fabric is what links muscles into functional chains. In this eye-opening book, rider bio-mechanics pioneer Mary Wanless explores the characteristics of the body's fascia and why understanding how it works not only improves a rider's balance and coordination, but also enhances “feel,” since fascia contains many more sensory nerves than muscles. These register the forces that pull on an area, and thus a “fascial net” under tension creates a wellspring of strength and sensation. By learning to access and rebalance your own fascial net, your stability, skill, and feel will be significantly improved, helping you become a quieter, more effective rider while simultaneously addressing the same imbalances in your horse.
