If you are already a fabulous rider, with a happy, willing horse then this information is not for you...

If you never lose your stirrups or get 'left behind' the movement... If you can sit to the trot on the bounciest of horses... If you have lower legs that never 'misbehave'...

Honestly, if you can do all of these things you are doing really great...

If you are already a fabulous rider, with a happy, willing horse then this information is not for you...

If you never lose your stirrups or get 'left behind' the movement... If you can sit to the trot on the bounciest of horses... If you have lower legs that never 'misbehave'...

Honestly, if you can do all of these things you are doing really great...

...but for most riders, this is sadly not the case.

Here's a question for you:

Have you ever wondered what the biggest difference is between people who ride well and have a happy, willing horse...

 

...and people who struggle to ride well. Riders who seem to create lots of frustration for themselves and their horse?

Horse Riders Mechanic riding too hard

It's not riding for hours on end...

Horse Riders Mechanic expensive lessons

...or having loads of lessons...

Horse Riders Mechanic having the perfect body

...or having the 'perfect' body...

Horse Riders Mechanic having the perfect horse

...or having the 'perfect' horse...

In fact, riding more and having more lessons can do more harm than good. Because unless you are practicing 'doing it right' you are simply practicing (and getting better) at 'doing it wrong'...

...so as well as getting better at 'doing it wrong' you are wasting your money and wearing yourself out. Not to mention pissing your horse off. And you don't want to do that!

 

Does this sound like your situation?

  • You are fed up of spending money and getting nowhere...
  • The harder you try, the worse your riding seems to become...
  • The more you keep trying to correct things the more you upset your horse...
  • Some of your riding friends seem to be forging ahead while you seem to be getting nowhere fast...
  • You sometimes feel like giving up because you and your horse don't seem to be having much fun anymore...
  • You feel pain and discomfort when you are riding...
  • You remember how riding used to be so much easier when you were younger...
  • Things are not going to plan and you are feeling frustrated, disappointed and exhausted...

Isn't it time you stopped...

Wasting money on lessons that do not help you.

Making excuses because you no longer want to ride...

'Beating yourself up' because you don't seem to be able to improve...

Feeling so discouraged because what was once an enjoyable passion is now just too difficult...

Getting frustrated with your horse when you know it is not their fault...

Living in fear of what damage you are doing to your horse because you know you are not riding well...

I am ready to be shown how to change....

You may have spent hours watching free videos and trying to improve your riding...

...but it is safe to say there is a lot of bad advice out there...

 
 

But, at last, here's a blueprint for your success.

The Horse Rider's Mechanic course is for you if...

You are fed up with spending money on lessons and feeling like you are getting nowhere...

This is a very common problem. Most instructors are not trained to teach position and balance and tend to concentrate on the horse rather than the rider. When you sort out your body issues you will be able to carry on with your regular instructor and make much better progress.

You already have a good instructor but there are certain position and balance issues that they and you are struggling with...

This course will complement the teachings of a good instructor rather than replace them.

You used to ride well as a child but you are now finding it much more difficult as an adult...

Again, a common problem. There are many reasons why as an adult you may find it difficult to ride as well as you did when younger. Particularly if you have a long break from riding. Once you understand the reasons and solutions you can start to improve! 

You are just starting out and you are feeling overwhelmed with the conflicting information that is out there...

There is so much conflicting information out there (on the internet in particular). Some good, some bad. If you are new to riding, you may be being told all the wrong information, make sure this is not you!

You have previous injuries/body issues that are causing you problems when you ride...

Past injuries and actual disabilities can hold you back. Usually because you haven't been shown how to work with them. No one has a 'perfect body'. It is all about learning how to maximise what you have!

You teach others and you need solutions to their position and balance problems...

A large number of my clients are instructors/coaches. As already mentioned, these subjects are not usually taught as part of regular riding coach education. Give yourself a leg up and get ahead of the game!

Petra Wilds - UK ''I got back to riding after a long break (to have a family) and was very disappointed with how much harder it seemed to be now that my body has changed somewhat. Jane has helped me to understand what is happening and how to work with those changes rather than against them. Such a revelation!''

Susan Reynolds - AUS ''Finding Jane was a turning point for me, before that I literally struggled for years, tying myself in knots, trying to do what I thought was the right thing. Jane's instruction certainly put me on the right track and fast.''

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."

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."

Linda Galpin (UK) ''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 fundamental problems that were blocking our progression.

About The Horse Riders Mechanic...

I have ridden and owned horses for many years now, starting out quite young, I was obsessed with horses. But I was also obsessed with how to ride as well as possible (as well as how to take care of them properly). I was also an avid reader and gatherer of information. This approach paid off, I LOVED learning and was/am happy to glean information from various sources.

I was also very competitive when young. So I competed in a very large number of disciplines, from showjumping to dressage to endurance to carriage driving and more!

I (Jane) AKA The Horse Riders Mechanic (HRM), have been teaching riders of all levels for many years. Over the years I have increasingly concentrated on the subjects of rider POSITION and BALANCE as I came to realise that these fundamental subjects are usually overlooked when riders are first being taught to ride. This results in a rider having problems later on because they have missed out on certain very important 'building blocks' in their development as a rider.

This realisation early on in my riding/teaching career resulted in me seeking out, following and learning from the teachings of numerous amazing riding coaches from around the world, also from the fields of pilates and yoga (and how it can be applied to horse riding) and of human anatomy and physiology. In addition, of course, I have learned from my numerous students by constantly listening to and acting on their feedback.

As a consequence, I have now studied and taught the subject of rider biomechanics for 30 plus years. This system has now been developed into two books and an online course.

The system I have developed (of teaching riders) was once described by one of my students as 'Brilliantly Simple, Simply Brilliant!'.

So why do I concentrate on POSITION and BALANCE specifically?

Many common horse riding problems, including pain and discomfort when riding, can be attributed to poor rider POSITION. Often riders are not even aware of what is happening to various parts of their body when they are riding. Improving your position is the KEY to improving your riding. It is of key importance because without addressing the fundamental issues, you cannot obtain an ‘independent seat’ (if you have not done so already, make sure you watch the video/read my article The Elusive 'Independent Seat').

Without good BALANCE, you cannot ride to the best of your ability. After improving your POSITION improving your BALANCE will lead to you becoming a more secure and therefore confident rider. Improving your BALANCE is the key to further improving your riding. Most riders need help with this area of their riding life, yet, as I have already mentioned, it is not a commonly taught subject.

When you have good POSITION and BALANCE you can continue to improve your riding but at an accelerated pace.

So the HRM system looks at each part of your body in great detail, starting with your feet and working upwards through your ankles, knees, and hips. It then looks at your torso, arms, hands, and head. By looking at all areas of your body in such detail you can work through any problems, large or small, and fix them.

Then the HRM system takes the rider through a series of balance lessons which result in the rider learning to move with their horse but also have complete security in the saddle.

The benefits are huge. For the horse and for the rider. The results speak for themselves.

So what do people say about what I do?

Alex Le Grand EBQ PPGBI - Equine Behaviourist & Trainer:

"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.''

Jill Farmers (Braidwood - Australia):

''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.''

Fiona Bowles (Canada):

"What a simple way to improve balance, I now teach this method to all of my students, from beginners to advanced."

Howard (UK):

"So much of what is written about riding overcomplicates the subject - your information is refreshing to say the least!"

Jill Warren (Aus):

"Jane - you have a knack of making things make sense, and getting that across to your students - I wish more people could teach as you do."

Jan Coombs (UK):

"These books are VERY easy to follow and have saved me money. My own instructor is great but she does not cover these fundamental basics. Thank you Jane for making it so easy to improve my riding!"

Linda Galpin (UK):

"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."

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."

Bibi Liati (AUS):

"Jane has revolutionised my riding, plus many others that have attended clinics at my property 'The Bibi 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."

Julie Spencer (USA):

"The Equiculture approach to everything horsey - from how you manage your horses to how you ride - has been a revelation for me. My horses have benefited so much. My partner also loves this approach and is now more involved in our improved horse 'lifestyle'."

Louise Smithy (USA):

"I have to tell you - I nearly did not buy these books (and the video series that came out later) what a mistake that would have been! I thought they were going to be 'same old - same old' but how wrong I was. Thank you Jane for giving me my (riding) life back!"

Tracey (Aus):

"What an amazing wonderful woman, to have so much knowledge and be able to impart it to the rider in such a small amount of time. To see a rider ask about trot extensions (the way we were generally taught was to sit down hard and push with your seat) with her help the rider accomplished the extended trot within a few minutes, happy well rounded horse and a beaming rider."

Jane Butler (Aus):

"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."

Sharon Wright - New England (USA):

"I love The Horse Rider's Mechanic approach to improving your riding - I now use this method in my own teaching - thank you Jane!"

Jennie Stevens - Norfolk - UK:

"Horse Rider' Mechanic - 'Brilliantly Simple - Simply Brilliant' that is so true, so glad I found you."

Petra Wilds - UK:

''I got back to riding after a long break (to have a family) and was very disappointed with how much harder it seemed to be now that my body has changed somewhat. Jane has helped me to understand what is happening and how to work with those changes rather than against them. Such a revelation!''
