“The Judge's comments now include FLOWING, FORWARD and ROUND!”
“Before I worked with Heather I struggled with imbalances and tension, not sitting evenly, holding my breath and unsteady contact. None of the instructors or courses I took helped me. I felt overwhelmed because I was on a vicious cycle of tension with my horse.
Shortly after Heather’s program began, I was able to makes the changes I want in my riding, and that has resulted in me being a more consistent rider. I also received my highest marks yet winning a first and fourth place.
Now, I’m enjoying my riding again, my lessons are happier and more productive for my horse, and judge’s comment now include “flowing, forward and round!” Thank you, Heather, riding is fun again.”

What IS riding exactly?
"I Was So Surprised With How Quickly My Riding Changed!"
"Before I started Heather’s program I was dealing with injuries and fear issues around cantering.
I saw Heather's program, and was very hesitate to enroll at first, thinking this couldn't possibly help me. But I just felt it was the right thing for me to do, so I signed up, and am I happy I did!
Shortly after starting with Heather changes in my riding happened quickly. Right away I began to ride without tension, being centered in my saddle and my hands got more quiet.
Now, I'm cantering happily, and I just did an obstacle competition and it was so great to just stop at each place and know exactly how my weight was balanced in my seat, where my legs were, my feet in the stirrups and where my hands were. We got great scores! And I never felt rushed. I plan to ride a lot this spring and summer and will be listening to my mounted sessions as I go along in my riding. Thank you, Heather!"
