DRIVING 101: From Zero to Ground Driving
Driving is a delightful way to spend time with your horse, share your horse time with friends and family, and enjoy the countryside in comfort. What's more, ground driving is excellent cross-training for horses and riders of any discipline. Driving training is a great way to improve your horse's response to your aids, the quality of their posture and movement, and their confidence and poise in any environment.
From Zero to Ground Driving is an online, self-paced course geared towards horse owners and riders who want to start their horses into driving. The course will introduce you to the basics of driving, and walk you step-by-step through how to teach your horse.
ONLINE LESSONS VIA ZOOM/SKYPE
No matter where you are in the world, we can work together virtually! Online lessons offer the same individualized support and guidance as working with a coach in person, while overcoming the logistical challenges of bringing your coach of choice to your farm. Just like in person, I offer online lessons in driving, groundwork & lunging, and liberty training, customized to meet your own unique needs and goals.
I offer two different options for online lessons, to best suit your needs and resources, and to accommodate time zones and weather factors. With both options, I encourage you to record your lessons to re-watch later for your own learning.
OPTION 1: LIVE LESSON
All you need is an internet connection, a computer/tablet/mobile phone with a camera and the Zoom or Skype platform installed, and a wireless headset with enough range for your schooling area. Position your device at one end of your arena, with as much of your working area in the frame as possible, and we can work together in real time.
OPTION 2: PRE-RECORDED LESSON
Alternatively, you can video your schooling on your own time and send me up to 15 minutes' worth of video a couple days prior to the lesson. We will then meet on Zoom/Skype to watch and discuss your video together, and give you homework to practice.
Whichever option you prefer, online lessons are 45 minutes long at a rate of $75 CAD. Email me to book.
