Given to Karin in 2008 as an unbacked 3 year old, Karin has brought Jed on from there. He went on his first fun ride and to his first dressage competition as a 4yo, coming 2nd in his first ever Intro test.

As a 5yo he went out clear round jumping and local riding club dressage and combined training events, bringing rosettes home on each occasion. He hacks out alone and in company, but can be easily spooked.

He has been trained using Equine Learning Theory principles, alongside the work of Phillipe Karl School of Légèreté.

Jed is very bright and loves to please, but can also be shy and wary of new things. Karin continues to ride and train him regularly.

He is used mostly on courses and for those wishing to improve their canter work.

“Karin, thank you so much for teaching me how to ride. Having spent 30 years and thousands of pounds on lessons, being confused and never feeling in control, i.e. always anxious and not really enjoying riding.

I found you and after only a handful of lessons, where you’ve explained everything so clearly and identified several reasons why I haven’t been in control.

Today’s lesson was great and I feel for the first time in my life that I’m riding, more in control and loving it… if only I’d found you all those years ago.

Now back to my breathing and my riding hat!”Louise
