Shanti had been in private ownership, with the same owner since before she was backed.

She had done a variety of hacking and riding club activities.

She came to OEC in May 2015.

Shanti is generally forward going and also very responsive to each riders’ organisation, being particularly sensitive to contact through the rein, hollowing if she feels she is held in, so the rider needs to learn to control the tempo through their body.

“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
