Need Help with Your Riding...

 But your schedule, your location, or your lifestyle are blocking you from getting to work in person with a trainer?

Get virtual, private, and in real-time, training & coaching for you and your horse



you will make more progress together, get more rides in, have more fun, and strengthen your partnership


You get the information you need AND you get to implement it when you need it most - while riding your horse! 

Remember, it is just as easy...

to get into the saddle and spend 30+ minutes 'wandering'

As it is to greet your horse with a specific intention and dedicate 30 minutes to developing 'Your Team'

So, it makes the following a pretty easy decision...
when weighed against dozens of wasted hours in the saddle...

Hey There, Lorna Here...

And since 2013, I have been working with riders from all across the globe, helping them to get unstuck in their riding and training.

I am the host of the Daily Strides Podcast and the founder of and I truly love helping riders who don't have a regular coach or trainer continue to develop their riding skills and train their horses. 

I am a riding instructor for over 20 years now and I have a knack for taking often misunderstood principles in horse riding and transforming them into simple, step-by-step processes that any rider can follow. 

"I believe that every interaction with your horse should add to the conversation; both on the ground and in the saddle... "

I also firmly believe that horse riding should be fun for everyone involved; horse and rider and all of my lessons and training work towards blending this together to help riders continue to move forward on their riding journey.

What I've Discovered...

Over the years, I've had the opportunity to help and get to know thousands of riders, most of them working alone without instructors, trainers, or coaches.  

Thanks to this, I've noticed a few patterns and subtle differences that make a BIG difference between the riders who remain excited to ride every day and those who, eventually, give up or stop riding. 

There are 2 Types of Riders Who Are Working Alone With Their Horses...

Placeholder Image

The 'Show Up and See What Happens' Rider

They work on whatever the mood of that particular day feels like working on with their horse! 

There's no planning, no tracking, and no realistic goals. 

Initially, things are great and they might even see some progress.

However, over time, they tend to ride less and less. Horse riding falls lower and lower on their list of priorities...  Many even stop riding after a while. 

Placeholder Image

The 'Have a Goal and Have a Plan' Rider

They know what they are working towards and have chosen specific exercises to work on with their horse. 

They commit to tracking the outcome of most rides and creating feedback.

There's a variety of different focus points and exercises to help keep riding interesting for themselves & their horse.

There's progress in their own training and in their horse's development as well. 

My Point Is...

with the right system and training, you too can begin to make progress in your riding and training - even without a trainer or coach. 

And this is what I help riders to do inside of Connection Private Coaching

Knowing what to do and how to do it is all well and good - but it is only through 'doing' that you will truly begin improving as a rider, and helping your horse develop. 

Connection is a combination of private training, coaching, audio horse riding lessons, accountability, and learning how to begin creating your own feedback in your riding.

Real-time private lessons in your own arena (wherever you are in the world) with me coaching you through video and voice.

And then training you can listen to using your favorite podcast app on your way to the barn - or, as intended, from your own saddle as you practice & ride. 

"Always gets me thinking and trying new approaches - 
Lorna provides wonderful insights that always seem to provide a new way of thinking about a problem I am struggling with..."


Success Has a Rhythm...

Connection helps you to develop yours in your riding by creating a consistent cycle through the essential elements required for better riding & training. 

Placeholder Image


It is proven, when you clean up your thoughts & beliefs about your riding, you begin taking different actions and it is the action that leads to the change you want. 

Placeholder Image


Not just before and after each ride, but a focus on actual groundwork, lunging and long lining in order to improve the conversation in the saddle between you & your horse

Placeholder Image


For most riders, the basics are where bad habits take root. Revising & polishing what you put on autopilot will allow you to focus your attention on developing your skills.

Truly stepping into your role as team leader and trainer. Begin making the transition from 'Passenger' in the saddle, to 'Influencer' by developing you & your horses training

How Do The Lessons Work?

Modern technology is a marvelous thing! By using suitable movement or auto-tracking technology, we can easily connect and train together. 

You will be riding in your arena and I will be training you, in real time, from my office. 

I can see you on my computer screen as your 'camera' (usually your smart phone) 'tracks' or follows you around the arena. You can both hear and speak to me throughout the lesson. 

And it is all in 100% real time... 

"Lorna makes me feel more confident in my daily riding I'm so grateful for the podcasts..."


Get the Support You Want Along The Way...

Many riders fall into the trap of learning - but failing to consistently implement - when it comes to their riding

Developing your skills as a rider requires you to ride, and Connection is created to help keep you get the support you need WHEN you need it, remain motivated, and inspired, and continue to take action from the saddle.

"I am finding the episodes in this subject extremely helpful. I’m based in NZ so it’s universal too, which is great. The content is motivational without being fake or airy fairy, and they are full to the brim with knowledge. Thanks Lorna!"
