Lessons

The standard lesson is always a favorite for getting started on a new training path. Whether you're interested in one day a week or five, she works with you to analyze your goals, identify, and remove barriers, and create a step-by-step action plan that helps you reach them. Adult Amateurs and Professionals alike seek out Abi for one-on-one training because she approaches every rider and horse holistically.

Abi’s lessons are designed around a foundation of correct rider biomechanics while teaching through the Dressage Training Scale. She works with her students to help them develop a relaxed and supple horse that is connected from the leg to the hand, that responds to the rider’s cues, and has a willingness to move forward. One of Abigail’s favorite quotes: “Only a balanced horse can relax, and only a relaxed horse can develop Impulsion and Collection.” (Nuno Oliveira, 1988)

School Horses

Clients who are interested in either a lesson or training program, and do not have a horse available to them may contact to see about the availability of lesson horses. 

Full and Partial Training

Abi offers full and partial training for both the horse and rider. Consider a full training option for a beginning intensive for your horse to get on track with the program and then take on an increasing number of rides/lessons as you develop the skills to maintain training with your horse. There are certainly common denominators when training any horse but also many differences in training approaches and expectations that need to be tailored to the individual horse and its background.

 

With a focus on teaching her horses a supple contact, throughness and symmetry in the body, and a willing self-going horse, Abi produces good competition partners that are enjoyable to ride and be around. She trains in a logical and systematic way that is clear for the horse to understand. This method of consistency in training promotes harmony and happiness between horse and rider.
