Riderology™ is a systematic approach to rider development that will help any rider, in any discipline, to improve. The goal of this rider training system is to produce a horse and rider team that is graceful, fluid, and balanced, all the while performing tasks in harmony and lightness.
Many riders struggle with the same elusive goals year after year, only to experience the same difficulties. Riderology™ presents a series of foundational building blocks that focus on creating a balanced rider that is capable of riding any horse in any style of riding.
A comprehensive system of functional riding, Riderology™ is a unique approach to training horse and rider that is rooted in the classical principles of riding and fully consistent with equine and human anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
Integrating the best horsemanship ethics and teaching principles, it places specific emphasis on what riders need in order to become an effective and efficient partner, thereby, directly improving the horse every stride.
It is a human-friendly approach to riding; with clear communication, the rider is guided through a step-by-step process of learning how to ride in an active learning environment. Each lesson is tailored to meet the specific needs of each horse and rider pair as they develop the main ingredients of a functional riding form with balance, timing and feel in motion.
It is a horse-logical approach to training; the horse remains sound and builds on his strength by being trained according to the system’s principles. The horse’s longevity is extended, and the risk of injuries tremendously reduced. The horse enjoys his training sessions; confidently growing physically and mentally as he is encouraged to develop in a positive way.
Whether learning, improving, or refining your riding technique, Riderology™ shows the way.
"The ability to influence the horse every stride, in a horse-logical manner, is where honest leadership and a true partnership begins." ~ Kasey Reeder, Coach
Riding is a complex equation! It brings together two creatures, who couldn't be more different, with the objective to create a harmonious partnership between them. Riders fall into a number of traps trying to accomplish this task. However, when you add knowledge of the classical principles of riding and a basic understanding of biomechanics to your training, it can produce incredible results within a short amount of time and simplifies riding in harmony.
Riderology™ brings theory/knowledge to life and integrates these timeless principles from the old masters with the modern science of biomechanics to produce the elusive ‘how to’ of riding.
