About Centered Riding®

Centered Riding is a new way of expressing the classical principles of riding, using body awareness, centering, and imagery. Centered Riding encompasses all seats and styles of riding. The Centered Riding process allows clearer communication between horse, rider, and instructor.

Centered Riding is based on a knowledge of human and horse anatomy, balance, movement, and on understanding how the mind affects the body and how both affect the horse. Through increasing body awareness, inhibiting old patterns, and replacing them with a more balanced, free, and coordinated use of self, both horse and rider can move more freely and comfortably, and develop their best performance.

For interest in scheduling or attending a Centered riding clinic with level III or IV Centered Riding Clinician, contact Kiki for hosting information. Scheduling now available for Centered Riding open clinics, private equine facilitated therapy and Western/English lesson plans.
