Specialized instructor training clinics offer an opportunity for professionals to learn more about how to teach the rider. Subjects such as balance, the seat, moving with the horse, straightening a crooked rider etc are often overlooked in horse focused lessons.
Instructor Training Clinics are structured to meet the needs of the group. From one day master class format to 4 day intensive hands on training.
Soon participants realise the horse is guided by what the rider does rightly or wrongly. Improving the Riders Technique can only improve the way the horse moves. Instructors learn where to start. They learn to diagnose and address problems. They learn how to communicate the feel to a rider to fascilitate learning.
Instructor Training clinics are to produce better instructors. Instructors who recognise the roll of the rider and can improve the riders effectiveness to correctly influence the horse.
Any qualified instructor who is keen to work from a broader base.
Instructor training clinics range from one day Masterclass format for large numbers to 4 day Hands on Intensive training for groups of around 8 -10.
