I had the opportunity to have lessons with Ashleigh for 9 months and I had learnt so much in that short time. Ashleigh is a fantastic teacher who is very patient and encouraging. She is an effective communicator and has an incredible eye at picking up and correcting both the rider’s position and the horse’s way of going. She is able to come up with exercises that help the rider and horse to improve and explain/demonstrate them in simple terms that are easy to understand. She always knows how hard to push both the rider and horse in a quiet and gentle way so that every lesson is rewarding and a great experience. Ashleigh engages the riders mind teaching body awareness as well as tries to teach the feel of how things should feel like so that they develop the right muscle memory and are better prepared to handle similar situations on their own.
