Following Desiree’s clear instructions and imagery, I was amazed at how things changed immediately for me and my horses. Sometimes the “correction” could be as small as loosening a left ankle, but each time the change was there. And the confirmation came from my horses who all showed their approval of the changes I was able to make by their snorts and the relaxation and thoroughness in their strides.
Desiree´s work starts where the vertebrae of two mammal connect. At first it is almost ridiculously easy, with unusual exercises like the “wiggly-waggly”, cycling backwards and singing in all gaits. This already makes every rider who is too much in his head, and every scared rider stumble upon the first aha moment.
I have been riding since I was really little, starting with normal English style riding but I very quickly changed over to Western riding.. That, however, didn’t stop me from being interested in other ideas, which then led me to Desiree. Desiree accepts every rider and horse combination, regardless of the riding discipline or level of training. Riding with Desiree…is fun, a lot of fun! I have always considered myself a fine rider, but from Desiree you learn in an unquestionably delightful way to become even more refined, you acquire a whole new body awareness where the movement of horse and rider get to flow together in an increasingly harmonious way. Riding with Desiree is like dancing with a horse!… Read more “A lot of fun!”
It is unbelievable what we (Picobello and I) have achieved through your lessons: This ease of process – warm up in 10 minutes and off you go – this looseness in both of us – this load capacity, bending of the hand and momentum – this almost slow-motion galloping – a real pleasure!
Desiree’s approach is relaxed, creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere. One of the most standout aspects she has taught me over the years is to be more body aware, as every little change and movement in our body has an effect on the horse. To help you achieve this, Desiree paints the most beautiful pictures, which you can refer back to, weeks after the lessons.
We are now fans. Regardless of whether you are a recreational or tournament rider, or your riding style, Desiree picks up everyone individually, encourages and challenges in a very friendly, but also efficient manner.
I can truely confess thanks to Desiree’s input, riding actually makes me feel better and more relaxed.
I am even trimming my own Horses feet, without any physical issues, and my horses love it! We are even doing more than basic dessage moves, without any protests!
We found Desiree in the last couple of years where everything just seems to just fit.
