    Default Centered Riding Instructor

    I'm a beginner who's looking for a new lesson barn. I want to ride dressage but am willing to go with a trainer in any english discipline who can teach great basics. I met a trainer today who said she teaches centered riding and is one of the instructors for the Sally Swift method. I've heard of the book but I didn't know there were instructors that specialize in it. Does anyone have any experience with it and is it a good option for a relative beginner.

    No idea whether this person will be a good instructor, but a good instructor who sticks with the principles of Centered Riding and basic equitation sounds just right for you based on posts in your other thread.

    Ditto! Centered riding well taught is a wonderful way to get the basics you musthave to go on in ANY discipline. Good luck and let us know how things go for you
    Form follows function, or does function follow form?
