For as long as I can remember I have been riding and training horses, and now for the last 30 years I have been coaching others to do the same. Being Dyslexic, I know exactly what it's like to be punished for something that you don't understand and can't do, which is exactly what I experienced in primary school all those years ago. It's an experience that does not enhance your learning ability, but purely diminishes it. And it's that understanding that has been deeply entrenched in how I have developed my training method.

The method is not driven through specific technique (although there are many specifics you need to be doing), but rather through the principle of "No-Panic." Always train your horse in a "Panic-Free" environment that builds trust and confidence, 1 lesson at a time before you start blending those lessons.
