This is an intensive learning experience, designed to be challenging, supportive and fun! Bring your own horse or ride one of ours. Each day you will receive a one hour flatwork lesson shared between two people, taught by Mary Wanless and possibly an assistant, or a 45 min private lesson with a seniour RWYM coach. On w/e courses your second (group) lesson is either groundwork (‘Equine Learning Theory’) or ‘supervised flatwork’, but on four day courses you also have the choice of jumping or pole-work. Each afternoon there is a dismounted workshop, which includes time for question and answer, and off-horse exercises that illustrate the biomechanics of correct riding. On four day courses we add video feedback.To complete the package add the group camaraderie, and excellent local pubs! The maximum group size is 14 people on a weekend course, 12 on a four day course. You can have an extra lesson if you wish on the afternoon when you arrive. The longer course gives you more time to become familiar with the changes in your riding, and to start ingraining them; to make more changes, and to increase your understanding of how those changes influence your horse.
