Elaine Meredith Steele

Schedule one lesson, or three; schedule four or more and save with our new "Mini Clinic" pricing. Have fun learning as you discover new things about your horse. As you develop awareness of your personal riding habits find out how they influence your horse's habits.

Then join us for a "Sunday Funday Playtime" finale. Come to do something more than ride around in circles in the arena; put those new skills to work playing games or learning drill team formations such as double lines, pinwheels and tight turns (a skill that helps one when negotiating those narrow mountain trails). As one participant commented: "It's a hoot, you feel so accomplished afterwards!" 

Centered Riding is a body centered approach that will deepen your understanding and enjoyment of the horse and rider partnership. And there is no better place for this Centered Riding workshop than the beautiful surroundings of Rhodes River Ranch. The sessions will take place in the ranch's spacious, heated indoor arena. 

Elaine began her Instructor training in 1992, and since then has taught Centered Riding across the country and around the world. She helps students of all disciplines to integrate awareness into their riding. By stabilizing the rider and clarifying body communication, Elaine shows students how to help the horse develop natural sound movement. The better the horse goes the more enjoyable for both horse and rider.

Enjoyment, fun... These are the words that Elaine uses most when she speaks of her approach to teaching. This is not a dry presentation; it is interactive, with teacher... well, people trainer as Elaine likes to call herself, rider and horse discovering each other.
