Introducing Positive Riding
dedicated to helping riders understand more about horses and how to build great relationships with them
We are supporting a new RDA group that will focus on people faced with progressive illness or sudden injury who need specialist support to ride and be with horses. Conditions include stroke, sight loss or progressive disorders such as MS, Parkinson’s and dementia.
Our first priority is to support adult riders and other RDA groups with a mobile RDA service. A horse box with a means of mounting and dismounting safely (and an accessible loo). It will take horses to safe places to ride, competitions and other RDA groups.
At our centre near Wantage, people who may not be able to ride, but would still like to connect with horses, will also be welcomed to a safe, calm yard environment where art therapy and related sessions will be organised.
Positive RDA is affiliated to the Riding for the Disabled Association
The site is led by Liz Morrison an experienced rider, coach, judge and well known author. As a qualified BHS instructor (BHS-SM, BHSII), and affiliated competitor, she has sound knowledge about horses and riding. She has developed her coaching approach through advanced NLP, professional coach training and an MSc in action learning.
She wrote the best selling book on NLP for riders, Simple Steps to Riding Success and co-author of Ride with Confidence. By incorporating it into her work with riders and groups she is able to build both practical and mental skills to build confidence and success.
She offers both mounted and unmounted coaching and sessions and Sports Psychology workshops. Liz will build your confidence and improve your performance, no matter what level you are riding at.
Liz Morrison co-authored this best selling handbook with Sue Devereux MRCVS, using her professional communications and design experience to establish its concise style and easy layout.
There have been many changes in veterinary care since the first edition. So now it is being completely re-written by a panel of vets, as an authoritative and free to use UK-led equine veterinary website and social media source for horse owners.
In order to keep it both free to use and without any advertising it is being managed through an educational charity which is in the process of applying for grants and crowd funding. Please support us.
Horses have a special ability to teach you more about yourself.
Somehow they can tune in and help you sort out your thoughts...
