What Others Say…..
“On numerous recommendations I booked myself in for an intensive week of lessons with Karin. I can’t believe how she transformed my riding and my attitude to being on horseback. We realised early on that I would benefi t from a few sessions of Feldenkrais and the change was extraordinary – I went from feeling that I couldn’t separate my seat bones to feeling like I was actually moulded to the horse by my deep seat and fluid movement. Her clear explanations, patience, attention to detail and humane gentle teaching coupled with her knowledge of the biomechanics of the human and horse saw me leave with a total change in my riding, hugely increased confidence and renewed vigour for something that I had been finding increasingly difficult and frustrating.” Elena
“First time I have been pain free for over 18 years! Absolutely amazing.” Shirley
“Riding has become a very interesting game of learning after I started working with Karin. I have read Mary’s books for ages. After Karin’s hands on help I was ready to really start a profound change in my riding. Between my visits to Overdale equestrian Centre I find the webinars from Dressage Training TV a great inspiration. I am a rather nervous rider, but with my new skills I am now able to get over my fears and ride safely.” Kirsi
