Diane about Connected Riding

"I appreciate that Connected Riding asks us to take responsibility for ourselves and our horses. It also positively supports 'wishes becoming reality' through sensible, realistic handling of our students and horses. Connected Riding and groundwork provides the balance that allows people and horses to continually grow, improve and enjoy the wonder of the horse and human connection."
