Essential training for every rider and their horse. Don't be fooled by the title! It may sound simple, but there is a lot more to the fundamentals of riding than you may first think.
Claire's focus is very much on the technique of the rider, and their ability to analyse their riding in fine detail to bring the best out in their horse.
As a classical dressage trainer, for many years, my philosophy is to fix things before taking them into the saddle. I work with riders to help with body function and mental process, unblocking negative thought patterns, which can help so much with being stuck.
A partnership with a horse is very special. Taking time to really notice what is going on for you in relation to the horse develops self-awareness and helps you to understand how you function.
Developing your relationship with your horse influences how you cope under pressure at competitions, hacking out, and knowing that your horse understands you and your aids is crucial to developing trust between you and for quick reactions when needed.
Individual lessons and clinics available on a freelance basis. Lessons start from £45 plus travel. Please contact me for details.
On-line option are also available if you are too far away to travel to.
Horses are fascinating and perceptive creatures. Developing a thorough understanding of how a horse interprets the world around them and deliberately being self-aware as a rider, are the essential skills to a successful and fulfilling partnership. This webinar follows the information in my latest book,The Psychology of Horsemanship. In ‘the old days’ I would have held an evening demonstration, but as that is not an option for the near future, I thought we could meet online.
If you missed out on the live sessions, downloadable versions are available. Simply pay below, and you will receive an email with the download information.
I aim to share my passion and knowledge about horses and riders developed from over forty years’ experience in the equestrian world, and more recently several years in the mental health profession. Divided into three separate events, each lasting one hour, the webinar covers:
Part 1: Equine Psychology (Understanding the horse)
The horse’s senses, primary responses and emotion
Saturday 16th May 2020 2-3pm
Part 2: Training Psychology (Understanding yourself)
The rider’s communication, training and learning from past experiences
Saturday 23rd May 2020 2-3pm
Part 3 Relational Psychology (Understanding the partnership
The goals, the development and the challenges faced in successful horsemanship
Saturday 30th May 2020 2-3pm
The sessions will be live with me and other participants. We will use Zoom, and you will receive an email with a link to join the session in advance. I can send you the information you will need. It is fairly straightforwards, but extra time will be given ahead of the meeting to log on.
The webinar will be recorded and available afterwards for you to watch again. There will be a chance to chat and discuss any related issues you may wish to share. You can register below.
There will be no refund of tickets available on cancellation, but they can be transferred to another seminar.
I am thrilled to have such lovely reviews this month from both Equestrian Trade News and Therapy Today. It is so exciting that this book appeals to both the horse world and the mental health profession! I learned so much more writing it: a real learning curve which has given me a greater understanding of my horses, and myself as a human being, horse owner and rider.
