What makes me a Concordia Professional?
My priorities in my teaching are helping the horse and owner/rider open up lines of communication, build confidence and trust in one another and in their own abilities. I focus on helping the owner/rider understand the horse's feelings and needs so that these can be taken into account in order to avoid pain, fear, stress, conflict and frustration for either party. I emphasise the importance of comfortable tack, good rider position and technique and a correct, sustainable way of going to enable the horse to succeed. Essentially, I want the horse and rider to be able to enjoy their work together and progress.
