What is the essence of the membership programme?
My passion is to make good horsemanship and high-quality classical training available to anyone, regardless of their background or level of experience. Anyone can become their horse’s best teacher.
We all want a good relationship with our horse. Most of us also want to know how to ‘school’ him to be in balance, and to stay sound and comfortable in his work. And safety is also a key feature: how can I stay safe and how can my horse stay safe, but without using punishment, force and fear?
It can feel really overwhelming when you look at where you are now and where you would like to get to. However, with a logical, systematic approach to understanding your individual horse it can be a fun journey of curiosity, learning and exploration.
What this membership provides is a step-by-step way of assessing what your horse needs, with practical guidance and support. This is blended with the development of good feel, and a deep dive into how horses’ feel and think. We also take care of humans; what do we need to be the best human for our horses and importantly, ourselves.
Whether you want to ride to high school, do working equitation, hack to the pub with your friends, travel your horse happily – the principles are the same; ethical training with respect for the horse at it’s heart. When you understand these principles, you can make informed decisions about what to do from day to day with your horse. AND, you can access a community of like-minded people and advice from experts in their field.
Practical, easy to understand, fun, good humoured – a place for all horses and humans
Membership Programme - What do I get?
A curriculum combining French Classical training and high quality horsemanship
The different teaching methods used for the group are excellent, including both group sessions and individual plans. This way of teaching is brilliant because you can always return to it and go over it as many times as you like. When you have a lesson in person , very often you can forget some of the information, but with this you can just go back over it again at your leisure.You will be really supported and encouraged by the rest of the group….even when you feel a bit daft or lacking in knowledge you are never knocked for it or criticized. It’s the best training experience for all.
It’s a warm and friendly place, with kind, supportive and wise members. Kate works hard to ensure everyone gets the tailored help they need and we can work through her excellent instructional videos and presentations at our own pace, receiving encouragement and constructive feedback where it is needed. More than anything, with Kate at the helm, you know you’re in a very safe pair of hands.
