Demelza is an Advanced Dressage Rider who regularly competes Advanced Dressage with both her homebred gelding and mare, Demelza's BD dressage record speaks for itself as to her ability and experience. Based in Thame, Oxfordshire Demelza is happy to impart her knowledge including Yoga for Riders at our Clinics at Amersham Dressage.

Yoga means "union". So it makes perfect sense to twin the activity of Dressage with this incredibly ancient traditional practice where one gains understanding and awareness of their own body and mind.

This unique clinic brings the basics of a good yoga practice where we will explore your awareness and range of movement within your own body. This will dramatically improve the efficiency and accuracy of your aids so reducing misunderstandings with your horse. Your posture on your horse will be discussed and correctly aligned and balanced.

Following lunch which will be provided, I will then coach you through any position issues and equip you with exercises to supple, strengthen and gymnsasticise your horse. Be your horse, a jumper, show or dressage horse, young or old, or in rehab, my extensive knowledge will enhance your horses movement and physical & mental health. So if you ride for leisure or competition, all bases are covered!

The word Dressage means "training", so this all encompassing clinic will train you - the rider & trainer - first, and then your horse.

So "union" between the two of you will be a certainty, and if it already exists then it will be greatly enhanced.
