About the Author

Perry Wood has spent a considerable number of years developing his unique approach to training horses and riders, blending the best of many sources, both traditional and cutting-edge. His philosophy is one of empathy and understanding towards the horse, lightness and communication, self-awareness in body and mind, classical principles, real results - and Real Riding. He has lived in Exmoor for the last twelve years, where he has bred and started young horses, run adult riding vacations and courses, and trained horses naturally and classically. He now teaches Real Riding at clinics in various locations, trains horses and riders, and coaches corporate executives in their leadership through intra-and inter-personal skills using horses to effect high-speed change.


If I could prop it between my horse's ears to refer to whilst riding this would be a bonus.
