Lessons, training and coaching with Julie Blackburn. Julie teaches all riders "balance seat" which is an all purpose seat that encourages riding by balance rather than strength or force. Based on a modified dressage seat, balance seat encompasses riding on the flat as well as jumping and cross country riding.
Balance seat lessons can help you become a more effective rider by teaching you to control your breathing, vision, posture and mental imaging. This allows you to ride in a relaxed and balanced manner in any style saddle, using any rein handling technique.
Balance seat riders learn how to establish a harmonious physical interaction with their horse, rather than just achieving a prescribed show ring seat. Lessons include both mounted and unmounted exercises.
Julie is available for dressage, stadium jumping and cross country lessons.
