The Balanced Rider

The Cornerstone of Dianne's Balanced Riding Instruction follows the Classical Dressage principals of softness, lightness and harmony between horse and rider. It is a structured balance system for the rider to develop awareness of how the horse is moving underneath her/him, allowing the development of “feeling” and becoming one with the horse.
The aim is to create a Safe, Healthy and Confident Partnership between horse and rider ensuring pleasure for both participants. This Philosophy will assist riders from the timorous beginner to the experienced rider, from trial riders to competition riders, be it for Dressage, One Day Eventing, Showing or Show Jumping.
All horses will benefit from being ridden following the classical principles
