Each day is a series of private time slots so that each lesson can be uniquely tailored to the needs of both horse and rider.

For the Rider:
Improve feel, timing and balance on a horse by understanding and experiencing the dynamic relationship between your body and the horse’s movement. An excellent riding position is the result of managing forces.

For the Horse:
Improve the mental/emotional state of your horse while learning how their bodies really work. Understanding basic but essential facts about how the horse’s body functions allows you to navigate training techniques in a new light.
The application of this information is unique to each horse but does allow all horses to improve how they move, how their bodies develop and the level of comfort in their work of carrying a rider. The ideas have been successfully applied to horses with behavioral problems, horses with chronic lameness issues and in the development of performance horses. The benefit is learning how to develop a sound, healthy and happy horse for any type of riding.

Quote Of The Day

By the time we reach adult life, if not before, most of us will have developed tension habits that are harmful. The habits at first may show themselves only as trifling inconsistencies of behavior, or perhaps as occasional muscular pain or clumsiness. Frequently, however, they appear as infuriating blockages that prevent us from giving our best just when we most need to, whether it be in the everyday business of personal relations or in more exacting situations
