Video Review

Symmetry in Motion is a video by Doris Halstead who wrote the book, Release the Potential. (Read about Doris in the October In Stride.) This is a great video about realignment of horse and rider using myofascial release. The beginning of the tape is a little slow with just lecturing, but as it progresses it shows exercises for both horse and rider.
