Focused Riding specializes in dressage, cross-country and show jumping and is the equestrian "home" of Jane Braddock. Jane provides lessons, clinics and coaching to riders in the Rochester - Red Wing - River Falls - Minneapolis areas of MN and western WI. Horse "crazy" since birth, Jane has been eventing over 23 years and helping riders achieve their goals for over 15 years - helping riders to:
- achieve clear skills improvements,
- create harmonious performance with their horses, and
- quench their thirst for better results in their equine passion.
Clear Skills Improvements: Using "rider centered" learning principles tailored to your learning style, your coaching and lessons are highly interactive. Each session confirms and re-enforces clear understanding of the new skills practiced. Each session concludes with review of "aha" concepts, and homework suggestions.
Harmonious Performance with Your Horse: Your communication with your "dance partner" begins with how to listen to your horse, how your horse's bio-mechanics impacts yours, and how to positively manage both your mental states throughout your rides. You'll work on skills improvement with harmony to advance your performance in the "art of horsemanship".
Better Results in your Equine Passion, Better Results in Life: Our horses are a passion that help us as riders to meet each day with renewed energy, whether we're "in the tack" or not. When you set clear "SMART" goals, work steadily towards achieving them and find that sense of joy and accomplishment, you tackle your other life roles with the confidence gained through those experiences. Your training sessions with Focused Riding help you progressively create these results in your riding, so you can carry your confidence to the rest of your life.
