Increase strength, lessen the severity of injury.

Seth Shifrin.  MD, Sports Medicine.  Quote. "I don"t have to tell you that being an Equestrian Athlete carries its own unique risks.  Besides the obvious concern of a bad fall or accident on the horse, riders are subjected to significant forces on muscles, bones and tendons, that if left unchecked can lead to chronic, nagging injuries throughout the body.  It is of no surprise to me that as a Sport Medicine Physician that I see so many riders of all styles and abilities with shoulder pain."

"Being a riding athlete is a perfect set-up for the chronic rotator cuff and shoulder blade tracking problems that we see in other sports.  Fortunately in other sports such as baseball and swimming, they (sports medicine professionals) have instituted stabilizing exercises to prevent shoulder problems.  It is time for riders to be made aware of these exercise techniques." End Quote.
