task trials, particularly the position of the trunk and pelvis. During a DVJ, the body’s COM is relatively confined in the frontal plane considering the large base of support during a double-leg landing task. This is in contrast to a small, single-limb base of support during an SLL task, which would

peak torque was used for data analysis. Figure 1 —Participants performed testing on an isokinetic dynamometer with hips flexed to 85° and knees flexed to 90.° Straps were used to secure the chest and pelvis, and a padded ankle strap was placed 5 cm proximal to the distal aspect of the lateral malleolus

-selected speed. Four markers, located at the anterior and posterior superior iliac spines, accounted for pelvis kinematics. For both lower limbs, 3 markers, placed at femur greater trochanter, femur lateral epicondyle, and fibula lateral malleolus, described the flexion–extension angle of the knee. For the

The movement practice of a rider on horseback is associated with greater improvements in muscle strength 8 and activation, 9 and also perceived mental and emotional status. 10 However, the effects of horseback riding exercise are

Potentially, this requires adequate hip girdle strength to maintain stability of the pelvis and trunk throughout the test. Although relationships have been reported between

the knees, hips, and pelvis bring the lumbar spine into a flatter alignment in which it is more vulnerable to morphological stress damage. 18 , 19 On the other hand, dressage riders use long stirrups that allow the rider to assume an upright position. In this way, lumbar lordosis remains in a natural
