Without the proper activation, we compensate with other, more strong muscles. Our glutes are build of smaller muscles surrounding the hips, low-back and so on.
Take it from me, with first hand experience with under developed glutei muscles. The hip pain I had was constant, it also effected how I sat in the saddle in a negative way. Go through these easy, effective exercises to get your glutes firing and ready to work!
Go through this anytime you’re having a leg day or are going to go ride and barrel race! Our bodies and our horses will thank us!
