Ride With Your Mind Coaches Network

Some of the listed coaches work outside their counties on a regular basis, or run clinics that you can travel to with your horse.

UNITED KINGDOM

* Indicates a non-riding coach (through either injury or age). Obviously these coaches have less experience (or less recent memory) of processing good feelings within their physiology, but they still understand the principles of biomechanics and good coaching.

The second table is in the process of construction, is not complete, and needs to be verified. It recognises that the coaches bring with them different qualifications and levels of experience, and have areas of special interest. Some are undertaking further training within other organisations as well as Mary’s. All teach leisure riders and nervous riders, and some specialise more in competitive riders and various disciplines.

From Mary Wanless: Below is a list of American Trainers who have some significant amounts of work with me. However, as they have not gone through my accreditation process I cannot vouch that you will receive a lesson that is  truly based on the principles of my work. I know that I have been a profound influence on their thinking, riding and teaching, but cannot say more than that. In the US in particular, I have difficulty convincing teachers not to throw out their old knowledge when they discover something new, so there is the chance that you will be taught the most recent thing they have discovered, regardless of whether it is relevant to you, and regardless of whether your starting point allows you to utilize this information. I am a big fan of a structured approach that acknowledges each person’s current skill level, and that builds skills in stages. This can be less exciting for the teacher, but far more relevant and useful for the student.
