I am a certified riding instructor with 20 yr. experience. I can help riders to understand how their emotional state can effect the horse. The horse reflects the riders emotions. I can help the rider process these emotions and the horse will shift. This is a powerful process to help horse and rider develop and understand how horses process emotions. Personal awareness is the key to success with horses. Horses are talking all the time. I can teach students how to hear what they are saying. My mindful riding program will work with any riding discipline. Horse lovers will thrive in New Path Mindful Riding Program. I am located in Manchester, MD. I will travel to your barn or mine.
I enjoy working with horses and riders, developing a true parternership. People love horses for their emotional connection, beauty, and power. I was born with a love for horses and I have surrounded myself with them all my life. If you are a horse lover, I would love to pass on my years of knowledge and experience to awaken your spirit to the love of the horse.
Leslie has helped me to take my understanding and communication with my horse to a new level. I have been riding and owned horses for many many years. Working with Leslie has opened up another level of communication between me and my horse. It has been an amazing experience working with Leslie and I highly recommend her. If you are looking to improve your relationship with your horse Leslie can help you.
I had a great experience with Leslie. She really listened to both me and my horse. Taking time to hear my concerns while also reading my horse, we were better able to communicate and improve our relationship. Thanks Leslie... he’s a keeper 💙
Learning how are thoughts and energy affect our horse and they are brought to us to teach us about ourselves which produce change and growth in us.
I am a very nervous person in general so riding was sometimes a challenge. But Leslie has worked with me, showing me how to ground myself before riding and saying the right things to ease my mind. And while riding she keeps my head in the right place and when my horse is doing something or I’m doing something wrong it’s just a simple “okay try to do such & such...etc”. She’s so great to work with and I’ve had nothing but success with her help!!
I will need to find out what the student is looking for in a lesson. I will evaluate the students knowledge of horses and match the correct horse. I will ask about their goals and move them in that direction. Keeping all horse safety rules as a priority in every lesson.
