I do not teach as many of these as I used to - but I still love to teach these weekends, which show us so much more about the body-mind and learning, enhancing our ability to make the most of our limited time in the saddle. The many exercises we do also help riders to pin-poin the co-ordinations that work in riding, as well as the mind-set that helps us learn them.

In an ideal world, we would all leave school being good at learning, but sadly, very few of us do! I often wish that the brain came with a user's manual, and many of us suffer because it doesn't. Some of us even manage to invent the 'looser's manual'. This weekend can right that wrong!

I love to teach mental rehearsal, and to show people how much the thoughts within our heads influence our bodies. There are many Martial Arts exercises which show this well, and which are so profound that they can, quite literally, be life changing! Input from Neuro Linguistic Programming shows us even more about the power of thought, imagery, stance, and breathing. This is knowledge that does not just help with riding, it helps with life!

It's powerful stuff, and it's great fun!
