About The Event

❓Do you want to ride with contact but not sure how to teach your horse?

❓Have a horse that has ‘baggage’ about the bit?

❓Have a young horse that is new to the bit?

❓Want to ride with a contact and stay bitless?

❓Do you have dressage lessons but wish you understood a bit more about why your instructor is asking you to do certain things?

❓Been advised your horse needs to carry himself better by a physical therapist but no idea what to do?

Some horses really struggle with contact, some horses love it - why? This can be down to the horses character, their physical capabilities, and how they are/have been trained.

This series of clinics is designed to answer these questions and more and give you and your horse an understanding of the basics of contact and movement from a training and behaviour perspective.

This is a two day clinic using a combination of presentations, discussion, simulations and teaching time to explore how to teach your horse to develop and maintain healthy posture and movement happily.

What you will learn...

- Healthy posture... identifying good and poor posture in your horse and the factors that can influence it and how you can improve it

- Developing your ground skills to help your horse explore and improve healthy self carriage

- How to transfer what you have learnt on the ground into the saddle

Testimonial from previous clinics:-

"My sister and I both attended Lyla's Healthy movement and self carriage fundamentals workshop with our horses, and found it to be transformational! Both our horses behaviour/confidence has improved during the last couple of years, so we were ready to ask a bit more from them, to help them (and us) move our bodies more effectively ... Lyla very clearly explained how to identify good/not so good posture in horses (and riders) She demonstrated a combination of ground/ridden exercises with our horses, and was able to convey how we sympathetically go about achieving an improvement. Lyla then taught us the same ground/ridden techniques (including advise on the most helpful

kit to use on both our horses.) We are already seeing positive changes in both horses, and are totally committed to continuing to train our horses in this way." Claire
