Jumping for precision not height

 

 


"Thank you.  It is obvious you have a passion for passing on knowledge and allowing people both young and old to enjoy the sport in world class surroundings. We are privileged to have you on our doorstep. Thank you

Diana and Tilly."

There is lots of constructive and positive feedback

"Hi Cheski,

Thank you for your instruction and support.  It’s quite a challenge to go up in height on an experienced horse let alone a young one so I was thrilled to have achieved what we did. I do appreciate the facility you are providing, especially as it provides such a great environment for a young horse to learn with out any pressure.

Thanks Anja"

Cheski understands what it's like to take a horse that's being difficult out to a competition.  She takes a particular interest in helping people understand how to use the mental tools that allow them ride through a tense situation.  She specialises in changing the focus away from an issue that's causing a tenseness by helping riders ride positively in situations that are not tense before and then after they tackle the "issue". 
 
There will be separate sessions working towards preparing for jumping and dressage and showing outings.

Her approach to training is to coach you through how to use you and your horse's attributes to your best advantage.  She will work on simple exercises that are controlled by you and not the horse.  She will work on your mastering  a proper preparation routine.  From this your confidence and therefore timing, rhythm and accuracy almost automatically fall into place
