After a few months training
"When I first met Debbie I couldn't ride. Sure, I THOUGHT I could ride... After all I'd been having
lessons for over 30 years! I could walk, trot, canter... Even gallop and pop a few poles. But I had
no clue HOW to ride in an outline (for want of a better expression), or how to teach a horse how to
engage his whole body, or how to organise my own body to make it so much easier for the horse. After
training with Debbie for just the last 3-4 months the shutters are beginning to open, and after each
lesson I come away beaming having glimpsed yet another way forward to my goal of riding in harmony
and LIGHTNESS with my horse.
Debbie is encouraging, inspiring, extremely perceptive, is always kind to the horse. She has a very
good eye for correcting the rider's seat aids and reins and always has a solution to the difficulties
that my riding throws up. She has boosted my confidence hugely, enabling me to ride more safely and
effectively. I can't wait for my next lesson!"
