Who We Are

Pioneer Equestrian Coaching is an accredited Ride With Your Mind® horse riding school based in the Cotswolds. We offer 1-2-1 riding lessons for all age groups and levels of experience using biomechanics-based techniques.

We are a value-for-money & friendly school where EVERYONE is welcome. We encourage our clients to try something different or new in a friendly & welcoming environment.

We teach in a calm, safe, supportive & appropriately challenging environment, with no raised voices and no impossible demands.

What We Do

We use Mary Wanless' Ride With Your Mind® approach, using innovative & streamlined techniques to help riders improve concentration, body awareness & core muscle strength. This creates incredible improvements in both the rider's seat and in the horse's response to their body.

Utilising elements of NLP, and the Alexander & Feldenkrais bodywork systems, it is a highly interactive method, with rider & coach acting as equals, combining perceptions to unravel the puzzle of how the rider affects the horse and the horse affects the rider.
