By making the decision to come along to a FREE introductory session you will enjoy the benefits of meeting like minded people, and enjoying some simulations for riding or some confidence building NLP exercises.  This will give you an idea as to how the evenings will unfold over time and how you can progress from feeling nervous to riding with full confidence.

"I was amazed at how much I learnt about myself and my relationship with my horse.  I also realised this new self-awareness and self-confidence will expand to many other areas of my life.  It's difficult to believe one weekend could change my confidence to such a level - I would highly recommend this to my most cynical of friends."  Elaine B  14th November 2010

"Our first thoughts of doing an un-mounted clinic were sceptical, but we found the weekend extremely beneficial and motivating.  Our confidence levels have rocketed, we found things out about ourselves that we never realised.  Thank you Lisa and Andy for an enlightening and rewarding weekend.  We both look forward to doing a ridden clinic with you in the near future."  Jo D and Anna P 14th November 2010
