Listenology - Shoulder In & Out Training for better balance, bend & topline development with your horse (with 36 months access)

Improving your horse's physical health with lateral work and collection - without gadgets or fear - even if you have NO IDEA how to begin!

Is your horse heavy on the forehand? Wish your horse was more collected?

Why not improve your horse's strength, flexibility, balance, suppleness, self-carriage & softness without your trainer being present! All done using old school classical dressage principals and training to improve your horse's long term health.

We all want the best for our horses. I believe that every horse should be treated kindly, and trained and ridden in a way that protects their long-term health.

But 'collection' and 'lateral work' are terms that are very misunderstood, and have been difficult to figure out for many horse owners.

And as a result, a lot of us tend to ride at home, or join friends for trail riding..... and our horses spend a lot of their time on the forehand.

And many problems begin, like your horse being heavy or pushy, or looking oddly like a giraffe with a his head up in the air and a hollow back.


And I get it. You can feel stuck and frustrated. It's not a nice place to be in. However our horses need us to step up to the plate.

Riding with a lot of weight on the forehand can damage your horse's long term physical health. It makes it more difficult for horses to carry the rider, and can even cause things like kissing spines, back issues, early retirement, joint problems and feet issues.

  • But what if there was a way to teach your horse - with kindness and consideration - how to begin lateral work... without needing a dressage riders 'death-grip'?
  • What if there was an easy to to start both lateral work on the ground AND in the saddle, without pulling, or gadgets or force?
  • A way that you will scratch your head and say.... 'Elaine, If I knew it was that straight-forward, I would have done this years ago!'

I've been in your position and I've figured out the #1 thing you need to do - and it's not hugely difficult - to begin developing lateral work and collection with your horse.

  • Even if you have an older horse who isn't ridden any more
  • Even if you are an older rider
  • Even if you have a young horse who hasn't even started riding yet!
  • Even if you want to fix these issues in an experienced riding horse
  • Even if you have a busy job, gorgeous but time-consuming kids and only have 10-15 mins per week with your horse!


Created by the award-winning film-maker, Irish horsewoman, and director of the 'Listening to the Horse' documentary, Elaine Heney.
