Ali says: “When we train our horses we often give lots of attention to the horse itself. The horse however is only 50% of the equation.
“Riders are often the reason the training of the horse is not as straight forward as we would like.
“I often see riders who are not fit enough, not supple enough, not straight enough and not aware enough of their own bodies, to be able to give clear, concise and consistent aids to the horse. This is my main motivation behind The Dancing Horse Rider solutions.”
Ali is an Equipilates™ Affiliated instructor.
