Whakatu Group R DA Tantragee Rd, The Brook Phone: 03 546 6366 firstname.lastname@example.org Enquiries and donations to: 5078921AH The horse plays the role of a 'muscle reader'. In one walk stride there are 8 different phases, therefore the rider must rebalance 8 times within one stride. On its own accord it seeks movement harmony with the rider, it tries to adjust its movement, balance him and align both their centres of gravity. 'The ultimate thrill of riding is to feel that every part of the horse's body is an extension of your own: your legs are part of his hind legs, your hips are part of his hips and back, your arms part of his forehand. Horse influences passed on to the rider are many: Anterior, Posterior tilt, Rotation of rider's spine to left and right, Elevation of pelvis and hip. Riding Therapy Alternative Positions on the horse are used to facilitate particular responses/effects in the rider. There are general safety considerations as well as the need for training to understand how each position affects the rider as a whole. Some of these Benefits are: Relaxation -- decreased general tone, Improved balance and posture, Postural drainage, Symmetry, Body awareness, Increased Coordination and Confidence, Orientation to midline, Hip abduction, Sensory integration, Trunk Mobilisation, Reciprocal patterning- mobilisation of trunk, Vestibular and Proprioceptive input, Central motor patterning and improved gait. The rider and horse are matched according to the rider's needs and the horse's movement. There are 56 R DA Groups throughout the country delivering riding therapy to hundreds of riders on a weekly basis.

All Shook Up, which features the songs of Elvis Presley, opens on Monday, April 29, at the Theatre Royal. Director Tami Mansfield said the storyline involved an Elvis-like motorcycling roustabout showing up in a you-never-heard-of-it' town in America in 1955'' who teaches the squares'' how to swing. Then they all get randy and all shook up over each other. This cau- ses problems because the town's mayor has implemented a rule -- no dancing, no tight pants and no public necking.'' Tami said the formula was similar to Mama Mia in that it was review of popular songs told through a love story. She said the youth thea- tre's production had bold dancing, was modestly sexy, had terrific music and was very funny. Tami said All Shook Up involved a cast of 26 as well as many volunteers working behind the scenes. These included six adults working on the costumes, 13 people building the set, herself and Annabella Gar- wood doing the choreography, musi- cal directors Melanie Carruthers and Matthew Mount, two stage managers, a painter, a photographer, musicians, two hair stylists and nine make-up artists, All Shook Up April 29 until May 5 at the Theatre Royal, 7pm each night plus 2pm matinees on May 4 and 5.
