In addition to his expertise, Dave is well known for his energetic, positive, articulate, and thought provoking yet simple teaching style. "It doesn't have to be difficult."
Auditors are encouraged to attend and ask questions as they watch the process of improved performance using Dave’s system. Dave also teaches a variety of lectures and unmounted Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement ® ( DTM body awareness exercises). Group unmounted classes are now done online, normally 1-2 weeks before the riding clinic.
Choose the Format That Works Best For Your Group
From Training through International Grand Prix, Dave focuses on good basics while always taking an individual approach for each horse-rider team. Dave strictly adheres to the principles of the German classical training scale and short-cuts are not taken for the sake of short-lived success. Dave has the gift to impart knowledge to riders of all levels.
Unique DTM classes to improve riding without riding!. Even more unique, done online, so very inexpensive!
These workshops are given via video conference online (FaceTime, Zoom etc).
The technology is really easy to set up and can be an inexpensive way for a meaningful mini-clinic / gathering for your group!
The workshops can be as short as 1.5 hours and the fee is very nominal. Students have the opportunity to purchase further classes (recordings) and this has worked wonders for riders' seats, pain relief, confidence levels etc!
Add ons or options: Equipe and Passier Saddle fitting, Sprenger bit fitting, public appearances and presentations, DTM work with horses and in hand-work. Please note that Dave will not provide opinions on a horse or saddle that you intend to purchase during clinics - this is a separate service.
