Clinic Booking Form: Ann Montgomery

Please complete the application below to request a participant clinic place with Ann Montgomery, “The Mindful Rider”. As a participant, you and your horse will receive one-on-one tuition from Ann at one of her clinics, divided over four training sessions over two days.


Ann's approach is to have the horse's emotional and physical welfare paramount in the training and will help riders understand the horse's emotional and physical capabilities or restrictions.


Ann will also go into the finer details of the rider's seat, aides, and mental attitude to build more confidence and harmony between the horse and rider. This may include adjusting the rider physically to allow the rider to feel the new position.


The clinics have a theory component and video feedback of parts of the morning lessons. These sessions are powerful and an important part of the clinics as they allow the riders to see the changes made to both horse and rider from a third perspective.
