Having spent the past thirty five years helping people ride better, it's easy to say that is what I enjoy doing most. I have worked with literally hundreds of riders, juniors, amateurs and professionals, and in doing so have developed my own philosophy.
"I CAN NOT TEACH YOU TO RIDE. NO ONE CAN TEACH YOU TO RIDE. YOU CAN LEARN TO RIDE AND I CAN HELP YOU IN THAT ENDEAVOR, BUT I DON'T THINK RIDING CAN BE "TAUGHT"".
Riding well is all about communication. If your horse is a willing partner and understands what you want, he will do it. It is that simple. It is when communication between horse and rider breaks down that trouble starts. You can learn to communicate with your horse. I can help you learn.
Riding in a clinic is a great way to gather new ideas to use to solve problems in your riding. It is not a substitute for regular training. But I find it interesting how often a problem can be resolved by a slightly different explanation.
I have limited openings for clinics and generally work on a Two-day format:
DAY ONE: Flatwork and gymnastics
DAY TWO: Course work
Class size is limited to five riders.
