"Dave Thind is a trainer who really gave me some good tools for my riding. On my first lesson he gave me a much better awareness of how I was using my body than any trainer had done before him. Mr. Thind is an expert of seeing those little things that make a big difference, things that I had never thought about or never had been told to change before I rode for him. In many ways, it felt like a revelation, because he made things that I found difficult before, suddenly appear as easy to me. He also gave me back my confidence as a rider as he always stays positive and made me see new ways to go instead of focusing on my old mistakes.
Riding for Dave Thind is a pleasant experience, because you ride the horse in a way that makes sense to a horse. You learn how to ride the horse over the back and into the contact using your seat and legs. There is no rein-pulling or use of force, and the horse becomes self-carrying, willing to work for its rider and is able to build a correctly muscled top-line.
Dave Thind is a thorough trainer, he makes sure both rider and horse get all the right things in place before he moves on to another level. He tells you what to do, but also why you are supposed to do so. If I do not understand, he always has another way to explain it to me. He is an expert of seeing what the individual horse and rider need to improve.
I would recommend every rider to try out a lesson for Dave Thind, no matter the discipline of choice."
