Enlightened Equitation at Willow's Leap CANCELLED

Willows Leap Equestrian


Willow's Leap is delighted to welcome Enlightened Equitation coach, Diana Waters, for a weekend of fabulous learning! If you are keen to learn how to improve the efficacy of your seat, and your aids, and to reach a greater understanding of your horse, then this is the clinic for you!

Diana Waters lives on the Central Coast of NSW. She trained and qualified as a riding instructor in the UK, where she has worked at over 15 riding schools.

"She has always been passionate about ridng and teaching, but was unhappy with the normal way of riding, both in training and at competitions, where she felt too much force was being used and the natural beauty and spirit of the horse was being dimished as a result.

In 2004, Diana met international teacher and founder of Enlightened Equitaiton, Heather Moffett. Diana was inspired by Heather's beautiful riding and ethical training, and enrolled on an Enlightened Equitation Teacher Training Course. She attained her Level 1 EET with a glowing report from Heather, and is the only person ever, to have been awarded a distinction. She is currenlty one of only 3 EE teachers in Australia.

Diana works skilfully and sympathetically with the horse and rider. She teaches the rider to synchronise exactly with the horse's movement, using clear and simple explanations. She teaches precise and correct application of the aids, in conjunction with exercises that develop the horse's confidence and balance, without force. This results in a horse and rider that move in lightness, balance and elegance, ready to excel in their chosen discipline."

In this clinic, Diana will work with clients using an equisimulator; teaching you to move more effectively with the horse, in walk, trot and canter. Each rider will participate in one group session, and two individual equisimulator sessions. This knowledge will then be put into practice on your own horse, with 2 private lessons, focussing on the timing and applicaiton of the aids, and learning exercises to increase harmony between the horse and rider.

This is a 2 day clinic, set at Willow's Leap, in the lower Hunter Valley. Just one hour from Hornsby, the Central Coast, and Cessnock, Willow's Leap is easily accessed from many areas. We offer 2 grass arena, and a sand arena, in addition to a cross ocuntry course and show jumping paddock. For those wishing to stay overnight, camping options and permanent yards are available for hire. We do not have space for you to erect your own yards. The cost of the clinic itself is $280. Lunch is NOT included- so please make sure you bring your own.
