These include 1. A loss or lack of confidence. 2. An inability to move with your horse correctly and 3. Pain/discomfort when riding - usually from previous injuries, sometimes simply from incorrect position, balance, gear or even previous instruction. Developing 'independent seat' addresses these problems and is therefore vital. The Horse Rider's Mechanic shows you how to develop yours!
The first building block to being a better rider. You need to be able to arrange the various parts your body in such a way that you are in alignment and you are as easy as possible for your horse to carry. Good position is not just about 'sitting pretty' though, it is about - among other things - utilising gravity to help you to stay put! This is the start of developing an independent seat!
The second building block to being a better rider. Your balance can only improve when your body is in the correct alignment. Then you are in a position to be able to carry out specific exercises that are designed to rapidly improve your balance. This is done in a step wise manner. Your horse, in turn, feels your better balance and goes better - an always increasing upwards spiral!

"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."
"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."
"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."
My teaching system has developed over many years. I have always been interested in how to improve the rider so that they can help their horse. I have had many, many influences over the years and I have taught riders of various levels - from complete beginners to very experienced competition riders.
I particularly enjoy teaching people who have lost confidence, people who are returning to riding after a long break and people who have physical issues that need to be worked around.
I believe that all learning should be enjoyable and fun. As much as is possible, learning to ride - or improving your riding - should not be complicated. My aim is to always explain what I mean in the simplest way possible.
Please take the time to read the testimonials on this page – these are just a sample of what I have received over the years.
I hope you let me help you in your quest to ride as well as you can.Find out more about me here...
