"Having had a long break from riding I decided to get back into it so started taking lessons from Annyka. I have found her approach just what I needed on both a personal level and as a riding coach . I had suffered from depression and was generally struggling with life. So to get back on a horse and go competing was a huge challenge both mentally and physically . Annyka’s method of teaching helped me look at my own personal issues that have been holding me back for many years. I honestly don’t think I would have overcome the barriers I was putting up in front of me if I had not chosen Annyka as a coach. I look forward to continue on this journey with further lessons in the future."
Annyka has coached the Australian Team in Jumping competitions internationally with both PCA and Equestrian Australia and is a qualified mindset and Neuro Linguistic Programming Coach who has a life long passion for bringing out the best in both horse and human through compassion, understanding and inspiration.

Thank you so much for a fabulous workshop yesterday.
I definitely discovered muscles to use riding that I have never used before.
The workshop gave great foundations that helped change ingrained behaviors that have not worked and by being more aware of my core and other muscles as well as overall position I was able to change my riding technique and see a direct correlation to my jumping ability. My horse( Arrow ) ) is now able to give me direct feedback when I do not apply my new skills. A pig root after a jump is a clear indication when I have not applied my new skills approaching and departing a jump. This direct feedback has made me want to change my previous jump position to get a free jumping horse that will work will me for difficult obstacles and indirect lines.
The workshop principles can be applied to all manner of horses. I was able to watch Jess’s hot horse and see how the ideas learnt In The workshop can apply to different temperaments in different horses. The workshop gave us tools to use on different horses and made us more aware of natural favoritism of our horses and of us as riders.
Thank you for my lesson with Roany a completely different horse but the principles still apply and now I am more aware of these ideas I can be a calmer rider.
The workshop gave lots of individual attention to each rider but those principles could be applied to different horses if you had the same issue with another horse.
Thanks for a great day riding
