"The way you interact with your students is wonderful. You really celebrate the smallest success, and your feedback is positive and empathic. It's like you haven't forgotten what it's like to be a beginner (or a "returner"), you remember what it FEELS like, and that kind of sensitivity is -- unfortunately -- not too common in the horse world. It goes a long way toward increasing your student's motivation to succeed!"

"I am so thankful to have access to you, even from California! I found you on Youtube where I was looking for an online trainer who could help me think through various dressage movements as I ride. Your insights helped us to become the Reserve Champion AA 1st level in our Regional Championships! You are also the only trainer who shares videos of real riders and their horses. Even better, you have shared their training progress weekly with us so we can see what you are doing and the results. Thanks to social media, you also are accessible and approachable on a daily basis to answer questions. Not only that but you are affordable and super duper nice with a lovely voice! You remind me of Mary Poppins! You are awesome!"

Are You a Horse Professional? Would You Like to Be Re Inspired as You Update Your Coaching or Horse Training Skills?

"Randi is known as a “trainer’s trainer.” She has been coaching professional riding instructors, coaches and trainers in the horse industry for over 20 years and will take you to your next level of success. Her Horse and Rider Awareness technique has been shared with instructors and trainers from around the world who are coaching dressage, hunter/jumpers, and specialty breeds. Contact her today to update your teaching and training skills. (Online or with personal coaching at your facility)

I have found that with riding and training that there are methods that work for beginners and those that work with intermediate or advanced riders but very rarely with all three, until now. What fascinates me the most about Horse and Rider Awareness® training is how well it works on riders, and horses, of all levels. Having a process helps and understanding how to work through the issues that come up make such a big difference in training of the horse and rider. Now I have a more effective way to teach both my hunter and dressage students and take them to the next level"
