Improve Your Horse’s Performance
Instructor Carol O’Donnell Wilson uses her 30 years of experience to improve performance by teaching riders how to develop a more balanced, centered riding position; how to communicate clearly with their horses; and to better understand how horses think and behave. The result is enhanced performance and a harmonious partnership of horse and rider. Participate with your horse or an audit option is available.
Carol says: People often find the Centered Riding is really helpful for the "how to" part of dressage for riders! (and other disciplines too) We often see amazing changes in the HORSES when we work with the riders. I tell my Dressage clients that Centered Riding can be the "secret" to improved dressage scores in competition!! And TTEAM is just the best way to support the work with the horses – we often also see great improvements in horse's performance after some TTEAM work as well!!

What People are Saying about Carol’s Clinics & Lessons:
Carol - what a beautiful weekend! Thank you for helping my daughter discover the joy of riding once again. She has made REMARKABLE progress with her horse and her ability to maintain her core position… What a difference! - and after 1 lesson!
You're a lifesaver!!!
Thank you so much for working with me and my mare. The TTEAM bodywork you did on the ground was amazing -- I couldn't believe how much my mare changed. Within just a few minutes of beginning your work, her breathing slowed, her eyes softened and her jaw relaxed. ....The pre-riding work blended perfectly with the mounted Centered Riding exercises that followed.....those few days with you were definitely "light bulb moments" that helped start us on the right path.
I have been using the things we learned at the Centered Riding & TTEAM Clinic, and it has helped alot! My leg is alot steadier when I think about grounding, and the images you gave me. Soft eyes have saved me a few times, too! Also, breathing in the transitions... wow!
…Thanks again for your fabulous insights and instruction.
