Welcome to In Harmony Dressage

What We Can Do For You!!
Instruction is always simplified for maximum results taylored to each student specifically (and or your horse). Dressage is a complex combination of slight changes in the riders weight, leg, seat, hand and body placement and/or pressure. Don't be over whelmed by this description. My Classical Instruction starts at the fundamentals and moves forward based on the students ability to comprehend and process what is taught. I nstruction is given in a calm and supportive way allowing students to learn at their own pace and within their abiity to absorb and process information. Never feel forced to do something that you do not understand the purpose of again. The intricate details and nuances of dressage are thoroughly explained. We do not assume that you know how to accomplish a task, we explain thoroughly every building block that is the "training pyramid". Teaching styles will vary depending on your lability to absorb, understand, process information and apply instructions. With this we also take into consideration every stuents learning style as well as any other obstructions or impairements to the learning process (examples: Learning styles: visual or hands on, or a combination of both; dylexia, fear and/or the ability/rate of absorbing/processing of information). First and foremost we teach each student how to be safe. In 41 years of instructing not one student has fallen from a horse under my instruction. Then the next core element is learning correct position. From there the world of dressage will fall at your feet without "drilling" of learned concepts. We do not hold students back from moving forward with their learning. The speed at which you learn is based entirely on you as a student not on your instructor. Here, you will learn how to ride in harmony with your horse with through correct balance and use of minimal aids.
