Each lesson will vary, and depending on your experience, skill and ability, and can rapidly progress to lateral movement and canter with proper balance and skill.

  • ​Improve your Balance, Stability & Flexibility. Whether you ride pleasure, trail, dressage, or jumping, Centered Riding techniques will help you become a better rider.
  • ​You will learn the proper and correct riding aids from the beginning so you will develop good habits that will last a lifetime.
  • ​We always focus on developing an independent seat which is paramount for balance and stability.

Lessons often begin with ground simulations to help you focus on your body movement, posture, and physical presence while giving you a clear, and often surprising, idea of what your body language communicates to the horse. You will mount and ride with a new sense of awareness in your body to support your new learning.

If you are a dressage rider, dressage patterns will be ridden, and you will learn how to properly execute the movements with an emphasis on following the foundation of the dressage training pyramid and old master’s dressage training from the classical dressage trainers.

​Groundwork Lessons

Callie also teaches gymnastic groundwork and the horse’s language for those wanting to learn the deeper level of horse training from the ground:  correct body language, use of energy or martial arts, positioning, balance and respect.
