Riding horses is hard work!
So much to learn, so much to remember...
& every now and then your partner decides to take matters into their own hooves!
OR PERHAPS IT IS THE PLANNING PART THAT GETS YOU EVERY RIDE
Many riders never become as effective & independent in the saddle as they want to because they simply become bogged down with all the diffferent, yet all as important, bits of the puzzle that make a good rider.
Don't allow your riding to become another chore, being pushed down the priorities of your seemingly never ending to-do list.
You know how important your seat aids are,
you know how vital it is to communicate your leg aids effectively.
In fact I would wager a guess that you even know how important your frame of mind is before you even hop into the saddle...
It's just the putting it all together that can seem difficult...
& that's where Daily Strides Premium can help you
Here at Strides for Success we know that learning to ride can have it's moments - I bet you can think of a couple of times right now where your horse had a giggle at your expense...!
We also know that often as adults, we become so weighed down in the details of the movement, that actually riding it becomes a monumental task - When really it does not have to be.
All it takes is someone to explain the WHYS and HOWS in easy to understand terms that you can relate to and, well, do!
And this is the big reason we created Daily Strides, a place you can get the explainations you are looking for, in a language you understand...

How confident are you as a rider? Confidence is one of those vitally important things that we don’t realise we need, until we lose it…
This collection of lessons is all about building your confidence in the saddle. Taking things at a speed that helps expand your comfort zone and allows you to feel safe and secure while riding.
Your seat is perhaps the most important aid you have at your disposal while riding. This group of lessons is all about learning how to feel what is happening underneath you and then influence your horse with your seat and core at the correct time for the best outcome. Be prepared to get to know your tummy, back, pelvic and bum areas really well!
Your legs communicate with your horse all the time you are in the saddle.
Whether it be to rebalance, create impulsion or ask you r ohrse to move over, knowing how to use your legs effectively to convey what you wan tto your horse wiht your leg aids is a big part of becoming a considerate rider.
Establishing a soft, consistent and following contact with your horse’s mouth is essential for becoming a better rider. However for many riders, the line between being soft and throwing the contact away is a fine line that is all too often crossed. In this group of lessons we work on creating suppleness through your shoulders and elbows, as well as becoming more independent of your reins for balance, so you can use the contact and work with your horse.
Canter… Maybe the most enjoyable gait to ride while in the saddle.
However, before we experience the true rolling of this gait, we first have to learn to follow our horse in it. The lessons in this collection are focused on the canter and how you can improve the different aspects of yours.
So much of your success as a rider, whether that be personally or in the competition arena, depends on your mindset. This group of lessons will help you begin to overcome some ‘mindset’ challenges, change your perspective a little and just change things up to help you become the rider you want to be.
The word lateral literally means sideways, however when we apply this to horse riding, we always couple it with words “forwards and sideways”. This group of lessons looks at the different lateral movements, how to ride them and how using them in your schooling will help increase the overall performance of your horse.
Jumping... Most riders either love it or hate it, however in this group of leessons we are looking at how using simple grid layouts will improve your horses way of going, whether you plan on actually jumping or not.
So... Way back in 2013 when we first began Strides for Success, we also created children's lessons - Strides for Children.
In this collection we have packaged them up so the younger rider in your life can enjoy them and learn from them.
And that's just the beginning...
Collections are constantly being updated & added to, & new collections are being created
So having all the lessons at your disposal is one thing... Implementation is quite another :) & so a little external 'motivation' is often necessary for you to begin seeing the results you are after...
We want you to succeed & so we have created systems within Daily Strides Premium to help keep the overwhelm to a minumin and also, to get you over any 'sticking points'.
Hey There! I'm Lorna, founder of Strides for Success, and I'm out to prove that becoming a better, more effective rider doesn't have to boring, ineffective, and, well... one big continous never-ending circle!
Strides for Success was created after I realized two important things:-
The first; it is pretty much impossible to be in two places at once... Yes, really :) However that is a story for another day.
The second; there are lots of adult riders who are feeling overwhelmed and under pressure to be better in the saddle; so much so that the fun, enjoyment and pure inspiration they originally felt when in the saddle is lost.
I AM ON A MISSION TO HELP RIDERS BECOME MORE COORDINATED, CONFIDENT AND EFFECTIVE IN THE SADDLE, WHILE KEEPING SIGHT OF WHY THEY LOVE RIDING TO BEGIN WITH.
