International Centre of Excellence for Rider Biomechanics

Lessons

Lessons at Overdale are mostly private and taught by Karin Major who is a BHSAI and an accredited Ride With Your Mind Coach, or one of her assistants working along the same lines.

The focus of attention is on the rider, as an individual. Many pupils who have tried and failed to make progress elsewhere are amazed by the results in such a short space of time at Overdale.

Lessons can be on your own horse, or one of our school horses or ponies.

  • Build riding skills and confidence
  • Increase security on a horse
  • Understand how you can, or do, influence the horse

We encourage our riders (whatever their age) to also learn about the care of their horses, leading, grooming, tacking up, un-tacking and more as desired.

Our Riders

Riders who have lessons at Overdale represent the full spectrum of ages and abilities.

  • Age: 4 upwards, including those wishing to start or return to riding in their later years
  • Ability: Total beginners, through to International competitors of all disciplines
  • Riders with confidence concerns can be assured of our care, developing their skills at a pace to suit

“I had no idea what to really expect and was slightly nervous.

My nerves quickly evaporated as Karin put me at ease with her quiet, confident and calming manner.

Karin took time to ask me about my back, my lifestyle and stresses and listened intently to my answers.

This increased my confidence further as I saw that Karin was making my session ‘tailor made’.”Liz
