About Back in the Saddle

A small-group intensive online course with the goal of building better communication and partnership with our horses and returning to riding. You’ll start where you and your horse are at now and go at your own speed, individual for each horse and rider, but with the support of the whole group.

Appropriate for

·        Riders coming back after a fall.

·        Horses coming back from an injury or a break.

·        Riders starting back who have been away from horses

·        Anyone looking to build confidence

We’ll support each other in a slow groundwork and re-mount process with thoughtful demo videos giving a visual explanation of riding exercises, weekly online meetings, and 4 half-hour private lessons with Anna. Riding (or not) will be up to the participant. Naturally, we'll listen to Calming Signals from both you and your horse. I’ll ask that you journal about your experience and consider affirmative training and self-talk. There will be a Facebook page for sharing within the group.

It’s my goal that the private lessons be as close to a live coaching session as possible. A unique part of this course will be the inclusion of help from a ground person of your choice who will provide safety and support for the rider, as well as facilitating a live-chat on a cell phone or tablet, allowing me direct communication while the participant is working with her horse. (If there is no wifi/cell in your riding area, then videotape your session and we’ll have a live conversation while watching your video online.)

This course is limited to 6-8 people per session. In order to allow each person to go at their own speed but also have an end in sight, the course group will be available for 10 weeks, with follow-up options.

General public: $225.

Members of The Barn: $175.
