“Another fabulous Lightness Clinic. Leanne is a patient and knowledgeable instructor and works very closely with you to help deepen the relationship with your horse and to instill the principles of Classical Dressage to ensure consistency in all aspects of working with your horse. I particularly enjoy the in-hand work and seeing the changes in the posture of both yourself and the horse. Highly Recommend”

“A gorgeous weekend for the quarterly Lightness Clinic held at Avoca Park. It’s nice to be amongst like minded people and the vibe and energy was awesome.

Thrilled to the back teeth with my lovely Matisse. He is getting stronger every week and lighter and lighter in front. The 3 lessons over 2 days focussing on posture are exponentially beneficial. Amazing transformations for all participants.

Started shoulder in with Matty today and we were using that to improve his balance in canter ( which is still a WIP). I am exhausted but still really buzzed and excited about what the future holds for us.”

I attended the latest Lightness Clinic last weekend. Once again, a great two days starting off with a morning session of in hand – lengthening and shortening the steps, stretching and trying some higher frame short steps – very exciting! Then in hand/mounted in the afternoon session. Yesterday all participants had a private lesson to work on and solidify everything practiced from the first day. All horses and riders reached and passed milestones and there were many, many smiling faces.. I’ve had the comment on one of my dressage tests “horse in self carriage” – the methodology works if you commit

“I attended the lightness clinic last weekend. It was my first clinic with my young horse who is having some training with Leanne. This was also the first time I’ve ridden my horse since he’s been at Avoca Park, the work Leanne has done with him has been amazing, the difference I felt in him was fantastic! Thank you, guys”

Alma Robinson

“Another quarterly Lightness Clinic done and dusted. So enjoy being around these like minded riders and always grateful to Leanne for keeping me on track with both Joey and Matisse, especially at the moment when things aren’t going so well.”
