CORE Rider is an acronym for Centered, Organized, Responsive, Effective riding. Through this method, riders learn how to use aids in a clearer, more organized and effective manner, thus developing a responsive, balanced horse. The method assists in learning a clearer sense of awareness of one’s own movements and use of self. In the process, the method promotes ease of movement, coordination and flexibility. At the heart of the CORE Rider method is teaching oneself a greater awareness of his/her own movement.

The clinic consists of unmounted group sessions and mounted small group lessons (3 riders max). With AM and PM groups, you’re only have to commit a half day to get the most out of this clinic. Plus a FREE lunch will be provided for participants between the AM and PM sessions.

Lesson horses are available on a limited basis. Contact Kathleen directly for more information.
