BIOMECHANICS CLINIC

2nd April 2017

Nikki Burlong BHSII and RWYM Biomechanics Coach

 

Would you like to learn with a coach who can tell you exactly how to sit and to influence the horse? Would you like more “feel”? Would you like to know what talented riders actually do and why they cannot convey that knowledge in words?

The way you sit has a profound influence on your horse, and for each little change that you make, he changes too.  Learn how this works and your riding becomes extremely ethical, and your horse miraculously “gets it”.

With over 20 years teaching experience, I coach riders in a clear, concise and easy to understand” way.

Groups of 3 Riders per session

£20 for members and £25 for Non-members.
