Many recreational riders are self-taught, or have had lessons "here and there".  Sadly, this leaves riders with gaps in their foundation skills.  Gaps that can turn normal riding and handling issues into dangerous situations. The Empowered Riding method walks you through a series of proven exercises to build solid foundation skills that can be applied to any discipline of recreational riding.

Consultations available in VA, WV, NC, SC, MD, and GA. Travel fee applies. Or, you may trailer in to my facility.
