ABOUT DRESSAGE TRAINING TV

Dressage Training TV is an online training website for people interested in improving their relationship with their horse, by learning about rider biomechanics, and groundwork.

The information in our Certification Programmes is delivered step-by-step, in bite-sized chunks of information. The programmes are designed to ensure that all the 'building blocks' are in place to give clear understanding of kind and effective aids. The video courses supplement the learning and demonstrate good, and not-so-good ways of riding, to help consolidate the development of these skills.

For the past few decades, Mary Wanless BHSI, BSc and creator of Ride With Your Mind, has studied the physics involved when a human rides a horse. She has come up with some enlightened ways of explaining to riders (of all abilities) how to change their bodies to enable the horse to carry them in a way that has the lowest impact on both horse and rider's bodies, that allows the horse to move correctly 'on the bit' (a term she eschews in preference of the expression 'the seeking reflexes'): the horse lifts it's back, using it's abdominal muscles, and seeks a consistent contact. There is no holding the head in place, jiggling the reins, or use of gadgets.

Your coaches for this package, Peter Dove and Ali Wakelin BHSAI, are Ride With Your Mind coaches, they work closely with Mary to create content for Dressage Training TV which is true to her Ride With Your Mind methodology.

There is NOT a quick fix for improving, but following our Programmes is certain to improve your relationship with your horse, to help you communicate more clearly, and result in a well-mannered pony or horse, who understands what you ask of them.
