Claire Lilley’s Stop, Go, Turn Training Programme

 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.

The Problem-Free Horse by Claire Lilley

The Problem-Free Horse by Claire Lilley

Problems when handling your horse can happen to any owner at any time and can be a result of thoughtlessness, fear or simply just not knowing the right thing to do at the right time. A badly behaved horse is a danger to himself, you and anyone else who handles him. Through good management, you can re-educate your horse, or, preferably, avoid dangerous habits developing in the first place; it is much easier to prevent a likely problem than to spend weeks or months on remedial training.

The author has a lifetime’s experience of working with many different horses, all individuals with their own temperaments. Each horse has its own quirks and fears, but common to every horse is the need to be handled confidently and sensibly and this book is packed with advice on how this can be achieved.

Immensely practical and accessible, the book covers topics such as stable manners, control, leading, grooming, farriery, tacking up, clipping, loading, behaviour in the field; and because working with your horse from the ground is invaluable to building a rapport and encouraging good responsive behaviour, there are chapters on lungeing, long-reining and loose schooling.

Tackling both prevention and cure, The Problem-Free Horse is a common-sense guide on how to cope with all the little difficulties that can turn the euphoric dream of becoming a horse owner into an uncontrollable nightmare.

Stop, Go, Turn Book by Claire Lilley


Whatever level you ride at, and whichever discipline you enjoy, it is so important to make sure your basic riding technique is correct in order to get the very best from your horse.

This book will give you a greater insight as to how three aspects of riding, Stop, Go and Turn, are used both separately and inter-linked to enable you to establish a correct training regime, whether you are starting a young horse, or re-training an older individual.

Each section includes a chapter on common mistakes, and ridden exercises to try.

Improving the Basics is all about perfecting your technique over time- there is no ‘quick fix’; it takes months or even years to develop together with your horse as a team, whether you are a novice rider just starting out, or an advanced rider wanting to improve.

The outcome of being able to Stop, Go and Turn with ease is a horse that is well balanced, attentive to the rider’s aids and able to work ‘through his back’ this can only be achieved under a rider with a correct position and clear aids; clear aids create a confident horse- and a happy rider!
