Lisa Avery EET (Level One)

Taking riding lessons from the age of seven, I was lucky enough to have my own horse from when I was 13, worked at a couple of yards and shared and rode various other horses until I had finished my PhD and was working. But it was when I took a problem horse on loan that I realised my seat was inadequate and set out on the quest to improve it!

A simulator course at Heatherís followed by lessons from two Enlightened Equitation teachers (and from my rather opinionated new mare!) not only transformed my riding but my entire equestrian outlook and I rediscovered my riding ambition Ė to become the best I can for my horse. Having completed level one of the Enlightened Equitation Teacher Training and continuing to train with Heather whenever possible, Iím keen to share that knowledge and am happy to help anyone who is interested in taking the time to learn how best to work with their horse. Iím particularly sympathetic to those who have lost confidence or are frustrated with not being able to progress, having been there myself!

Iím based in Aberdeenshire but will travel to surrounding counties and other parts of Scotland wherever possible. I donít have schoolmasters at the moment, but hope this may change in the future! Iím also a Fhoenix saddle agent and can be contacted via the forum Ė username LisaNW or by email or by ringing 07981 700933.

I have owned horses for 20 years and have ridden for 27 years. Originally I worked at my local riding school for free rides, then worked there for a year full time on leaving school. I drifted away from horses for a while then bought my first horse, a 15hh standardbred pacer who didnít know how to trot on diagonals. We had many an entertaining time and I finally found a freelance instructor who improved us both. I was taught feel, sympathy and lightness.

I had a severe accident in August 2000 which resulted in me being on crutches for 6 months and not riding for a year. On returning to riding I found I could not get on strange horses, only my old faithful standardbred. I took lessons at a local school to overcome this, and at this point decided there had to be something more out there.

On finding EE and having a simulator course with Heather, I decided I had found what I was searching for. The EET course originally was just a journey for me but as it progressed I realised how much it can help others too. I have over come physical problems along the way, tight hips being the worst issue. The crowning event for me was riding Heathers beautiful horses including her extra wide Irish Draught Danny who I now proudly own.

I now own 4 horses, and am actively involved in breeding Irish Draughts. I have competed at Riding Club level, in endurance riding up to 40 miles and now show in-hand at County level.
