  • You really love your trainer and want to get more out of your lessons.
  • The logistics of getting to a trainer are almost impossible because of time or finances. 


  • You truly believe in your horse and know you both can learn and enjoy dressage.
  • You desire a real partnership with your horse while you go up the levels.
  • You want your training time to be enjoyable.


  • You wish to develop your skill as a rider.
  • You want the work to build your horse’s body up, not break it down.
  • You long for your horse to love to work WITH you.


  • You don’t have hours to spend watching videos or reading books.
  • You need a simplified, systematic approach with time-proven methods that actually work.
  • You want to be connected to like-minded riders who want to learn and improve for their horses.
