Enlightened Equitation is a unique and logic approach to the teaching of riding and humane training of horses. During this 1-2 days course we will be focusing on how to get a correct, elegant seat that works with the horse instead of against it. How to apply the aids so that they are clear to the horse but not obvious to the onlooker and how to apply them in a way that works with the biomechanics of the horse. We will also be focusing on how to synchronise our movements with the horse, how to get the right timing and feeling so that we reach the goal a relaxed, willing happy horse. The course days consists of both theory and practical ridden exercises and suits riders of all levels.
