Riding Club Rallies & Clinics
Private or shared lessons and groups up to 4 riders.

For riders wanting to find harmony and lightness with their horses through classical schooling techniques without the use of force or artificial training aids.
For both nervous and experienced riders in all disciplines.

Students are encouraged to follow a classical philosophy
to schooling with utmost respect for the horse.
Lightness and obedience is developed by establishing
relaxation of the horseís mind and body through
logical and progressive training methods.

The horse gains trust and confidence in the riderís
clear and consistent application of the aids.
The rider gains trust and confidence by having an
effective systematic and compassionate approach
to bring out the best in their horse.
