Having groundwork lessons with Patty is helping me build a much better relationship with my Fell gelding. She is always calm and patient with him even when he is challenging and this has inspired confidence in me. Patty is the best instructor I’ve ever worked with, thank you. –Anne + Briar

I have been training with Patty for about 6 months now. I am thoroughly enjoying the new experience, i.e. less is more. It is not a quick fix, but it will enhance your relationship with your horse, and start the horse working in the correct way. I am dressage orientated and was taught the usual way, 'get after your horse, kick it, pull it in', in effect it was forcing the horse to work. The Centered Riding® way is so much easier, the horses are more relaxed and want to work for you, their movement is also much better as they are working the right muscles as they are happier and not tight. I fully recommend Patty's teaching, but be warned it is like learning to ride all over again, but it is worth it! –Beverly + Marco

I have been working with Patty for a year now and the impact she has had on Rufus and I has been massive! I started working with Patty due to my horse Rufus having over developed muscles on his right quarter and underdeveloped muscles on his left quarter. Patty has done lots of body work with me so I am now much more aware of my body and the effects it has on Rufus. I am right handed thus stronger on my right side which has affected Rufus being stronger on his right side too!! With all the ground work and riding lessons Rufus has totally changed shape and is now equally muscled all over and looks fantastic. I have also changed and use my body much more equally. Patty’s always been on hand to offer me advice with mine and Rufus' training and Rufus is going the best he ever has. This is all down to Patty's Centered Riding® which has such an impact on me and Rufus, I have learnt so much from her and look forward to learning much more!–Becky and Rufus
