Relationship Riding Lessons

Holistic Equitation

Riding Lessons are available with Kailie if you own your own horse. Kailie is available for private lessons and will help you explore kinder, safer ways that will assist you in building strong and lasting foundations in all aspects of groundwork and riding.

Kailie spent 10 years studying classical dressage and was also introduced to the thinking behind natural horsemanship. This led Kailie to investigate the many different approaches to horse training which has since led her to combine classical, natural and mindfulness training methods together to develop a strong foundation in teaching people how to be safe, deal with problem behaviours and build sold foundations for riding.

Kailie has her patented bitless bridle, "The Gydle" a simple, extremely effective tool to help build the relationship with your horse.
