The Rider Success Training Scale

Everyone has heard of the German Training Scale to train and produce dressage horses. But not many people focus on the rider and what the rider needs to focus on to grow and progress through the dressage levels. Enter the Rider Success Training Scale - 6 pillars the rider needs to focus on and master to be the rider they need to be to train their dressage horse through the levels and achieve their dressage goals.

Overcoming Riding Fear

Most riders feel fear at some point in their riding. It may be nerves, anxiety, scared to canter or be in large groups, or it may be fear to even get on because of a previous fall. No matter why the fear is there, you need to learn how to master your fear, so you control it and not let it control you. So many riders are missing out on the fun, joy and love of riding because they are letting their fears get in the way. This session will teach you a powerful Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Technique to help you move past your fears and enjoy your riding again.
