This is Module 1 of the our course 'A Good Seat Moves'.
Check out what students have been saying after module 1:
"Hello Dave, I feel so fortunate to have signed up for your online seat training course. I love the body awareness and movement re-training exercises. I went through all of week one exercises twice, and am feeling less back and hip pain, and yesterday I did most of my trot work in sitting trot--following my horse much more instead of against him! My trainer is very impressed with what is happening to my body! Not only can I follow my horse better, I'm straighter! I have a history of collapsing to the right and this has almost magically disappeared, my trainer confirmed it. My horse of course feels lighter, more engaged from behind, I can ride him more forward but maintain balance and I'm finding self carriage. I just went through the first lesson for the second week, and feel amazing. So much taller, aligned, self-aware. I can't wait until my riding lesson tomorrow.... I have to say that I normally get off from riding feeling a bit sore in the hips, but not these last rides. In fact, I feel great, almost felt like dancing after jumping off! Even taking a stroll in the grocery store after riding, I realized how comfortable I actually am. I've never considered myself someone with good proprioception. But, not only do I now feel my body better while riding (even while listening to the demands of my trainer from my earpiece), I find myself noticing how things in daily life. For example, how I shift weight etc. while lifting my arm to brush my teeth. I've lived in this body for 64-years and never before have I truly inhabited it like I am doing now. It's unbelievable how much change is occurring, I'm not exactly sure the science behind it, but I don't care:-)I have ridden most of my life, and now I have a 9 year old Hanoverian gelding that I bought and imported in June 2017. He is by Londontime, and his dam is by your White Star! He is an amazing mover, and a very sweet boy. With the help of my trainer, we are making good progress, we actually went to our first show last summer and got over 61% in my first time showing in over 6 years (even going off course too--oops!). We did First Level, One. My goal is to eventually get my bronze medal, so mastering sitting his trot is very high on my list! I have been riding dressage for approximately 12 years. I very much look look forward to continue my learning with the help of your online course. Thank you so much for making your lessons available to us. You are an incredible instructor.

MORE QUOTES BASED FULLY ON WEEK 1 SITTING TROT COURSE :
A DEEP, SECURE SEAT:
"Dave, Thanks for doing this class, I’m greatly enjoying the experience. Today was an exciting day. I mean, wind blowing, rain and cold. My horse had a low startle threshold. Had a nice ride. Complimenting myself on how well I rode then asking myself why? OMG!! It’s Dave's course! Only week one and already improved." Barbara Noble, WA, USA
"Really felt a difference in the fluidity in my pelvis afterwards. Thanks!" Wendy Waegell, MA, USA
"The lessons do seem to be helping! I didn't realize just how tight my lower back and pelvic area has gotten. Also my sciatic was starting to flare up, which usually gets pretty unbearable and lasts a week or two, but this time it didn't progress as usual, and went away on its own with no muscle relaxers or steroids, which I can only assume is because of the lesson, so I'm pretty excited about that!"Jen Wilson, MA, USA (severe injury after a horse fell on her in an Advanced event, breaking her pelvis among other things).
POST SURGERY RETURN TO RIDING:
"This is so useful, both for the body and the riding. I like especially like that there is a clear focus on how this helps our feeling of sitting in the saddle. I also like the scanning of the body - very awareness raising :-) I had to be careful this first time - my body is stiff like a crowbar :-) But I feel this training can make me smoother in and out of the saddle :-)
And your voice is so calming :-) Thank you!" Astrid Lien, NORWAY
