Flatwork & Dressage

Is there more to it than just sitting on a horses back?

Absolutely there is, horses certainly keep you humble and it’s a wonderful journey, although we do need to watch we don’t over complicate things.

I remember back when I had received my certificate as a qualified instructor at 18, crumbs that was 1992!

I thought I knew such a lot, but of course now I know I was such a beginner back then!  It is such a journey with your equine friend, yes it has its ups and downs but the rewards are unexplainable.
