Remote Riding Lessons
Wherever you live in the world, you can get support for your riding!
As an Inspired Rider, you will be encouraged to tune in with your intuition, your horse, and as you get instructions from me, it will become the most joyful co-creative lesson, with all three beings in alignment.
I don't micro-manage your movements (unless requested). I will offer moments for you to really listen to your horse and your body. I am classically trained and have been blessed with incredible trainers who taught me the basics of dressage and jumping, in a way that the horse enjoys. Never forced, only invited to dance.
I love Dressage most of all, but can also assist beginning jumping and pleasure riding in English & Western.
If you are working on other disciplines not listed above, I can give you a general sense from a Dressage perspective, but I may not know all of the technical aspects of your chosen sport!
I have been teaching consistently since 2000 and riding since 1986. I did become certified with the CHA in 2005, for Level 3 in both English and Western. Recently became certified as a Level 1 Equestrian Tai Chi Instructor as well.
For those interested in getting remote Equestrian Tai Chi lessons, I will be happy to include that at your request.

The lessons are $150 US for 45 minutes.
With Zoom meetings, you can set up your phone on a tripod (or have a friend be your camera person) and get a riding lesson in real time!
It's just like having your riding instructor on the side of the fence!
The Noxgear Bluetooth Speaker for two way communication is highly recommended.
You can also invest in a Pivo Pod and I can take control from around the world, to move the phone and zoom in!
The above tech can be found on the Resource Page here.
May the horse be with you. Always.

My horse and I have been enjoying our weekly remote lessons with Beth so much that my husband and his horse asked to join in!
We live in a fairly remote location and there aren’t many coaches around who like to work with horses in the way that we do. It’s great to be able to have such a fabulous, horse-centred coach as Beth right there in the middle of our own arena at the touch of a button.
At first, I wasn’t sure that remote coaching would work for me but once the session starts, it’s easy to forget that Beth is actually on the other side of the world.
Beth’s friendly and intuitive style of coaching keeps us all relaxed and learning. The sessions always evolve at just the right pace for the horse and human combination we are on the day.
It’s great to have a recording of the session to watch back later so that we can see what went well, where we could improve and what we want to work on again.
Thank you, Beth for helping us all to make progress, with a lot of laughs along the way.

I can’t say enough about the power sessions with Beth.
Beth is so inspiring and made me feel that I wasn’t alone with my fears with riding, she helped me to see things differently and taught me ways to come back to a centered more focused and relaxed place and it had made all the difference!
I take my time and do things at my own pace and the relationship with my horse is flourishing now. If you asked me a few years ago if I would be doing the things I do now with my horse I would have thought no way!
Beth really has helped me to become an inspired rider!

Beth has a unique way of teaching.
She empowers her students and supports them to make the best decision for themselves and their ponies. I love that through the wonders of technology, I can have real-time lessons with her even though I’m on the opposite side of the world.

Confidence is an ongoing issue for me, especially after having kids.
It is hard to find the time to get in the saddle, so I had to get creative about how to get the most from my horse time.
The idea of a remote coach seemed a bit odd but when Beth explained how I could ride wherever I needed and have her in my ear to support me, I thought it sounded ideal.
Interestingly, I still found myself very nervous, but Beth was very kind and understanding and I felt completely confident that she had my and my horse’s best interests at heart.
It was amazing to feel the changes over the lesson and the video that she sent back to me was great to reflect on what we did.
Her feedback in the moment to subtle changes in our posture or motion was great and having her in my ear (I was using ear buds) really helped me to settle and engage with my horse.
I highly recommend giving it a try if you are looking for direction and support with your riding.

I was hesitant to try remote riding lessons at first, but I am so glad I did!
Thanks to the technology available, I was able to receive top-notch instruction from a skilled and experienced riding instructor from the comfort of my own home.
The lessons are just as effective as in-person lessons and have allowed me to improve my riding skills while avoiding the hassle and expense of travel.
I would highly recommend remote riding lessons to anyone looking to improve their riding abilities.

Remote riding lessons with Beth have been the answer to my prayer!
I was looking for a very specific type of riding instructor who would be kind and patient and help me work through my panic post injury.
Being able to take lessons remotely is huge! It saves us on traveling time and the added the luxury of getting to ride with an instructor who gets you.
Beth really listens and helped me bridge the gaps in my connection with my horse. We are both much more confident than ever as partners.
