More information on First Steps & Testimonials:

The course is structured over the two days.  You will be taken through the world of NLP - Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Alexander Technique.  We will also address any equine issues and help you develop some ridden skills with some fun exercises.. 

"I was amazed at how much I learnt about myself and my relationship with my horse.  I also realised this new self-awareness and self-confidence will expand to many other areas of my life.  It's difficult to believe one weekend could change my confidence to such a level - I would highly recommend this to my most cynical of friends."  Elaine B  14th November 2010

"Our first thoughts of doing an un-mounted clinic were sceptical, but we found the weekend extremely beneficial and motivating.  Our confidence levels have rocketed, we found things out about ourselves that we never realised.  Thank you Lisa and Andy for an enlightening and rewarding weekend.  We both look forward to doing a ridden clinic with you in the near future."  Jo D and Anna P 14th November 2010

"Attending the course has helped me to understand that I was teaching myself to fear the worst, but has shown me ways to turn that around.  I am going away from the course with the knowledge of how to build my confidence enough to ride my horse and enjoy every minute of it .. life changing ... thank you"  KL January 2011

"The weekend has made me think very hard about why I consider the negative parts of my partnership with my horse rather than the positive and achievements"  CV January 2011


Please note - these confidence clinics are horseless allowing you to really understand the nature of your fear or lack of confidence in a comfortable, safe environment.  There are options to join ridden clinics with your equine friend at a suitable time in the future.
