Developing the Seat as the Primary Aid

The Art of Riding. With an authentic passion to consider fairness to the horse – isn’t it time we start to strip away the secondary aids and create the opportunity for horse and rider to achieve it together?

Exploring The Art of Liberty

Through increased awareness of the framework of the aides, we will explore stretching and collection using your body alone. We are only limited by our imagination.
