WHO WE ARE
RideSmart is a new way of getting the most out of you and your horse. It considers the traditional methods of training horses but looks outside of the box and introduces a new, better way to form a partnership with your horse.
Developed by human performance expert Jon Pitts, it takes into account new scientific research into what makes an elite rider, and delivers this information in an innovative, clear and easy to understand way. Those who have tried RideSmart, have discovered a better, safer and more confident way to enjoy life with their horses.
Through our work with riders at the top of the game, and use of technology within the Olympic disciplines and racing, we have been able to understand what makes an elite rider and how they interact with their horses to perform better.
Advances in neuroscience provide great insight into how the brain works, how we learn and how we physically and mentally respond to the challenges of riding. Using this knowledge, and our research, we train the rider’s body and mind to be at one with their horse.
Coaching skills have advanced notably in sport. We like to instill a strong skill set in our riders using RideSmart’s unique three-way learning framework. We believe this forges a deeper connection with your horse, and creates a long lasting, more rewarding experience.
