Petros’ Equestrian Coaching Ethos.

by petros on October 16, 2018

Genuine interest for the horse and rider we are working with.

Empathy and understanding for their unique lived experience of their performance.

Sincere kind regard for the combination, no matter how tricky their situation.

These are some of the fundamental principles of our coaching ethos.

It matters; every horse, every rider, every time!

We have had an exciting couple of months coaching horses and riders in showjumping, cross country riding and dressage.

Our philosophy is simple:

  • Training has to be fun to be effective
  • Changes are best achieved in small increments
  • Take your time by being reasonable in expectation while striving to gently push the boundaries of ability.

Horses and riders in any equestrian discipline, like any athlete, need a balance of positive reinforcement of good habits and constructive critique of areas of weakness, safe in the knowledge of the coaches’ genuine interest, empathy and positive regard.

July 19, 2018

Another of our lateral work routines. Can be used with leg yield or half-pass exercises and can be further elaborated upon. 🐴 Notice the ‘staggering’ effect, encouraging us to execute small amount at a time, switching from directly forward movement to sideways and back again. 🏇🏽 We often like to circle away into a canter […]

July 8, 2018
