Learnwell: What can you expect from a lesson with Julie?
Good humour, empathy and clear explanations. You will be assessed for the effectiveness and stability of your position and aids, and your horse will be assessed for the responsiveness to the aids. Your lesson may focus on improving responsiveness for your horse or it may focus on improving your stability and effectiveness. Many lessons will combine both approaches. Whether its working on the basic way of going or performing figures and exercises, the underlying reactivity of the horse will be refined and the position and stability of the rider improved. Julie will work with you to progress your riding goals be they competition or pleasure riding orientated.
