Elaine Meredith Steele delivered another successful Centered Riding Clinic at the Riding Centre. During this popular fundraising event, participants reaped the benefits of Elaine's deep knowledge and insights. Thank you again to Elaine and all those who participated!
Centered Riding® is a method of riding and riding instruction that is based on the idea of having the rider seated in the most effective position. It combines elements of martial arts, yoga, and T'ai chi ch'uan with knowledge of horsemanship to create a system where the rider is centered and balanced in the saddle. Originally developed by Sally Swift, since her death, Centered Riding has been trademarked by a non-profit educational organization that promotes awareness and teaches the principles of Centered Riding internationally. The widespread acceptance of the method marked a significant shift in horsemanship from rote, military-style instruction to a more psychological approach.
