Pia Wallberg

Pia has been working at/ in MV for the last 6 years with yoga groups and seattraining. She has also trained our olympic rider Joao Torrao al the way to the Olympics in Tokyo.

She has a long experience from working with riders and her system, ECS, is a psychophysical coaching system aimed at making you a better horse rider and lead you towards your full potential. The system is based on different parts such as, physical, mental and goal setting.

More information about Pia:

Seat training on the horse:

A good seat is essential for a horse rider. Most of us know the seat is important but despite this knowledge we might not know what we need to do to make the necessary changes and how much a bad seat effects your and your horse ability to perform at your best.

The seat training Pia provide will identify and make you aware of the weak links in your seat, but also give you tools your need to help your resolve the problems.

Yoga for riders off the horse:

Pia has been working with yoga for over 20 years. And she has created a yoga system specialized for riders, SattvaRidersYoga. Yoga has the wonderful power to challenge and strengthen a persons physical and mental weaknesses in so doing reaching balance. Sattva means balance or balanced energy, and when we are balanced as we need to be in riding, we will have the best possible prerequisite for success.

No previous knowledge is needed, only the desire to become a better horse rider!


My Name is Joao Torrao, I am an international dressage rider at Grand Prix level. Pia and I started working together 2015. She really is a great addition to our team. Basically Pia helps me to be a more balanced person for both my professional and my personal life. In the physical aspects, she helped me to get more even in the saddle, stronger in my core and to have more knowledge about my body. Now I know better how to influence my horse by using my seat. Pia has been teaching me some breathing exercises to help me get focused and calm down when I am a bit more stressed or cheer me up when I am a bit more down. She also helped me to set my goals and how to build the road to achieve them. In the past years Pia has become my advisor and above all a very good friend of mine.
