In this program Sally Swift demonstrates, with the help of several of her students, her Centered Riding techniques. She shows how, by being aware of your body, you can make riding more comfortable and freeing for both you and your horse. Sally Swift is widely acclaimed for her innovative teaching philosophy, which stresses body awareness, the value of "soft eyes", proper breathing, centering and balance. Her methods enable horse and rider to achieve harmony - working together naturally - without pain. Unlike traditional teachers, Sally Swift does not believe in forced training techniques that cause stiff bodies and tense riding. Instead, through the use of vivid, unusual and highly creative images, plus a thorough knowledge of human and equine anatomy, this wise and inspiring teacher enables the conscientious equestrian to reassess habitual responses in order to ride in natural positions, break through frustrating plateaus, and achieve ever-rising goals with comfort, vitality and precision.

What is Centered Riding? Centered Riding is simply a new way of expressing the classical principles of riding. It answers the question of "how", when the riding instructor tells you "what" to do to communicate with your horse. It applies equally to all english and western riding disciplines.

How does it work? Many people are caught in the trap of unconcious habitual habit. Their bodies know only the old habitual way of movement. Centered Riding, with simplicity and logic, allows you to discover an inner balance, serenity and control that in turn gives you greater freedom of movement, suppleness and coordination. These new qualities are reflected in your horse as increased balance, poise and forward motion. You and your horse become as one, in harmony.

In these two programs Sally Swift demonstrates, with the help of several of her students, her Centered Riding Techniques. She shows how, by being aware of your body, you can make riding more comfortable and freeing for both you and your horse.
