Training

Horses need to be supple throughout their body in order to carry a rider comfortably. If they are tense, confused, or in pain they will begin to compensate for the way they carry themselves under the weight of a rider. This leads to improper muscle development keeping the horse from functioning correctly as well as physically incapable of the demands of a certain movement. Integrity's problem solving approach helps to find the other underlying cause of resistance, behavior issues, and loss of athletic performance. Dressage movements were meant to provide therapeutic benefits to all types of horses. Using classical principles of in-hand techniques and training strategies, horses improve movement, beauty, and most importantly happiness.

Coaching

Training for the purpose of gymnasticizing, will not only provide harmony, it instills confidence in knowing you can present yourself and your horse with a positive energy. Integrity coaching not only helps the riders position but also the effects of quiet aids to communicate with their horse.
