Lynn is running regular monthly Dressage/ Rider Alignment clinics at a private yard in Knodishall, Saxmundham, IP17 1TJ.

Sessions are either private or shared between two people; £45 for 45 min private session or £35 each for 2 sharing an hours session, there is no arena hire charge. All levels of riders and types of horses and ponies welcome.

Rider Alignment

The sessions will be aimed at improving your seat, balance and alignment in all three paces. The contact to the horse’s mouth will also be assessed and corrections made to ensure the contact is elastic and soft. During the session you will notice a significant improvement in your horse’s straightness and balance as you improve. You will be amazed at how subtle changes to yourself and learning how to ride in balance and harmony with your horse will achieve better lightness and suppleness in your horse’s way of going, proving you don’t need to ride with strength/force or gadgets.


Concentrating more on your horse’s training but if necessary your alignment will still be corrected because if you are out of balance or misaligned it will make it very difficult for your horse to go in a correct balanced way. I like to work with all riders as well as types and breeds of horses from thoroughbreds, native ponies to warmbloods.  Nothing is ever forced and gadgets are not used, rather a little more time is spent educating the horse to accept a correct, light contact on the rein. The aim is to produce horses which are working in self carriage whilst being engaged and supple. The horses remain relaxed throughout their training and exercises are gradually developed depending on the needs and ability of each horse and rider.
