The Horse Rider's Mechanic

'Brilliantly Simple - Simply Brilliant'!

A toolkit to rapidly improve your riding skills, improve your confidence and make your horse happier!

Here's a question for you:

Have you ever wondered what the biggest difference is between people who ride well and people who don't?

It's not riding for endless hours...

...or having loads of lessons...'s not having the 'perfect' body...

...or having the 'perfect' horse

In fact, riding more and having more lessons can do more harm than good - because unless you are practising 'doing it right' you are just getting better at 'doing it wrong'!

Plus you can have the 'best physique' and the 'best horse' in the world but if you are riding incorrectly this will not help you - plus you will, sooner or later, harm your horse! 

Does this sound familiar?

The harder you try the more you upset your horse...

The more you try the worse your riding seems to become...

Some of your riding friends seem to be forging ahead while you seem to be getting nowhere...

You sometimes feel like giving up because you and your horse don't seem to be having much fun!

Things are not going to plan and you are feeling frustrated, disappointed and exhausted...

Isn't it time you stopped...

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 now just feels 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...

Start getting the results you deserve for all your effort, hard work and expense!

I have the exact tools you need to move from frustrated to happy...
The Horse Rider's Mechanic helps you to rapidly improve your position and your balance - the fundamental building blocks of being a good rider. As a consequence your security and your confidence increase - your riding improves - your horse goes better!

Common rider problems...

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!

Your Position

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!

Your Balance

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!

Horse Rider's Mechanic Testimonials

"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."

Kitty Jones (USA)

"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."

Bibi Liati (AUS)

"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 Rider's Mechanic

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.
