''I just can’t tell you how much difference The Horse Rider Mechanics Course has made to my riding. After many years of lessons, I knew that there was something just not right about my riding and your information and guidance has changed everything. I could never keep my legs in position and my rising trot seemed to produce short choppy strides in my horses. Since I’ve worked with your programme this has all changed. I can’t thank you enough.''

"I have to tell you that the article you wrote on The Independent Seat is truly amazing! Maybe it is because I am wanting that material and have been searching online and haven't come across anything that comes within cooee of your article...and maybe it is just brilliant in its own right?! Thanks - I am working on it and appreciate your writing from such an understanding angle."

Is there such a thing as a natural (horse) rider?

May 02, 2021

"As an equine behaviourist and trainer, I help horse owners with behavioural issues, and I also provide training sessions for groundwork, ridden work, handling, etc. Horses that have behavioural issues under saddle often struggle due to the rider being unbalanced or having slight issues with their position or seat. I studied HRM as a form of CPD to further my knowledge on this topic so that I was able to provide clients with a more holistic solution alongside the behaviour modification, training & complementary therapies.

I have found this course to be very helpful in providing me with further knowledge of rider biomechanics and whenever I am now teaching behaviour-based riding lessons or working with behavioural issues under saddle, I use the knowledge I learned from the HRM course to analyse the rider's position and seat and ensure that there are no issues there. I find that this really complements the behaviour modification and training really well.''

''The Horse Rider's Mechanic System has made a huge difference to my relationship with my horse Milly. I have ridden all my life but Jane showed me how to fix some problems that were blocking our progression.''

Bibi Liati (AUS)

''Jane has revolutionised my riding, plus many others that have attended clinics at my property 'The B B Ranch'. She just has such a great way of explaining to riders, both inexperienced and advanced alike. I call her my horsey hero and I cannot praise her enough.''

Kitty Jones (USA)

''What I love most about The Horse Rider's Mechanic System of riding (and teaching) is that it breaks what can be complex issues down into bite sized pieces and teaches you step by step what you really need to know.''
