Chronic pain changes people. If you’ve never suffered from it, imagine a heavy shackle dragging you down, sucking away your optimism and making pain management the centre of your world.

We’re not talking about the addiction to tack collecting or the empty bank accounts – we’re talking about physical issues, like the chronic low- back pain that affects 88% of riders.
So when hunter-jumper rider Kathlyn Hossack finally received treatment for her own low-back pain through athletic therapy and an understanding of rider biomechanics, she saw the opportunity to fill a serious need in the industry. She began offering performance-based training and therapy to fellow riders and created RideWell Performance.
We’re currently focusing on the small group of riders in Canada who want to get free from pain, invest in their long-term health and compete at an elite level. But our vision is much bigger. It’s our goal to train RideWell practitioners across Canada and the U.S and change the rider culture to one that is just as healthy and fit as it is tough.
