Elevate Your Riding Journey with Consistency
As a rider, you're familiar with the idea of taking lessons. Sometimes it's a few times a week, perhaps once a month, or just when you feel like it. However, we know from years of research and day-to-day coaching that real progress is often hindered by inconsistency and long breaks between lessons.
With nearly two decades of coaching experience, I've discovered that the key to progression lies in forming training habits. That's why I've shifted from random lesson requests to a regular lesson programme.
At the core of this initiative is your journey. It's crafted to nurture those vital training habits, foster commitment, and drive personal progress. By becoming a member, you're proudly embracing ethical, intelligent, and connection driven horsemanship.
This is a community where your passion flourishes, your aspirations come to life, and progress knows no boundaries.
Join us to experience a professional, down-to-earth approach that keeps your riding journey consistently moving forward.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Reach out to Wiola to discuss your goals and aspirations. Together, you'll arrange a convenient date and time for your no-obligation introductory session.
During this session, you'll have the opportunity to experience our coaching firsthand. It's a chance for you to assess whether committing to a journey with us for the next few months aligns with what you're looking for.
Tailoring Your Pathway
Once we've established our compatibility and you are happy to sign up for at least three months of weekly training, it's time to transition from conversation to action.
Together, we'll delve into the finer details. We'll explore your preferred learning style, identify your training priorities (groundwork, behaviour, specific ridden skills etc), and understand whether you thrive within your comfort zone or prefer to push your boundaries a little further.
Our aim is to create a pathway that resonates with your unique personality and preferences. Your journey with us will be crafted to align with your and your horse's individual needs, ensuring that your training experience is both enjoyable and effective.
As your initial 90 days commitment concludes, we invite you to continue your training journey with us on a monthly basis.
We genuinely hope you decide to stay, and if you do, you'll enjoy exclusive access to preferential rates on all AERA educational opportunities.
Taking a break is understandable, and whenever you're ready to return to regular lessons, we'll be here, waiting to welcome you back. Once you're a part of our community, your membership is a lifelong connection. Feel free to come and go as you need, knowing our coaching doors will always be open to assist you whenever you choose to return.
Your journey with us is a personal one, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
