TAKE YOUR RIDING TO THE NEXT LEVEL
P4E experts teach workouts specifically designed for equestrians
Improve stability over fences
Strengthening the glutes and hamstrings will improve stability when jumping and when things don't go as planned in the saddle. Matt's workouts include exercises targeting these key muscles and other deep stabilizers.

Understand the pelvic floor
The pelvic floor is key to deep core strength. But, before you can engage it, you must release it. A tutorial and workouts led by Deb will help you make the connection and effectively engage your pelvic floor.

Lengthen and strengthen muscles
Long, lean muscles not only look pretty, they are more resilient to injury and allow the rider to move with grace and agility. Kelly's workouts will help the rider find length in every dimension.

Reduce stiffness and rigidity
A tense rider creates a tense horse. By improving flexibility and suppleness, the rider will sit more quietly and ride more fluidly. Basil will lead you through yoga sequences designed to do just this.

P4E POSITION PRINCIPLES
The P4E position principles were designed to improve your position with workouts targeting correct posture and biomechanics in 5 key regions of the body. Consistently performing the exercises will result in muscle memory, so the rider will achieve a stronger position without conscious effort or striving.
PILATES FOR EQUESTRIANS. BY EQUESTRIANS.
Hours in the saddle means that you may not have the flexibility of a ballerina or gymnast.
Every P4E workout has been tested by an actual equestrian, so you know it’s doable.

Megan Smith, Founder
Before becoming a Pilates instructor and rider, Megan was a Division I runner at Lafayette College, where she still holds the 5k Cross Country Record.
While competing in NYC after graduation, Megan tried Pilates for the first time and saw tremendous benefit. Pilates helped Megan surpass her plateau—and also helped prevent overuse injuries that had sidelined her in the past.
After years of consistent Pilates training, Megan won The Fitness Magazine 4-miler in Central Park, passing thousands of runners to take first place. She knew she had Pilates to thank for that win.
Megan created P4E to bring the benefits of Pilates to equestrians. The singular goal of P4E is to help riders gain a competitive edge, ride better, and win.
