Ride Smart encompasses three main areas of rider improvement: Performance, Safety and Confidence and consequently these innovative and bespoke programs are giving the wider riding public a much clearer understanding of how to improve not only themselves but also the welfare of the horse. The fundamentals of movement, balance and coordination are assessed and riders are encouraged to think, plan and analyse during their training sessions.
Sharon has worked with Jon on his regular trips to Australia, since 2011.
