About Helen Harvey


Centered Riding® was developed by Sally Swift. It uses body awareness, centering, and imagery to expand your communication with your horse and understand how your riding position affects your horse. It teaches a language that allows clearer communication between you and your horse.

Centered Riding is based on a knowledge of human and horse anatomy, balance, movement, and on understanding how the mind affects the body and how both affect the horse. Through increasing body awareness, and replacing old patterns with a more balanced, free, and coordinated self use, both you and your horse can move more freely and comfortably, and develop improved performance.
