Video Reviews 

Inside the VIP Program, you will receive weekly personal & private video reviews of your riding. Yep, you can record your rides during the week, send them on and I can help you make strategic changes in your very next ride.  


A rider who can clearly communicate, using their position and aids, about what they want has a far greater chance of being understood by their horse...

And a rider who has successfully placed the basics onto autopilot has the space to begin to focus on the horses way of going

The Returning to Riding Program will ensure that you not only understand your aids and how they work but that you can then use them to have better conversations with your horse

"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..."

Reaching a point in your riding journey where you no longer have to think about the basics opens the door to so much more...

Starting with a shift towards training your horse and improving both of your way of going...

Hey There, Lorna Here...

and my goal is to help riders just like you, make progress in the saddle, while enjoying themselves and having fun along the way. 

I am the host of the Daily Strides Podcast. I blog over at StridesforSuccess.com and I'm a trained riding instructor who loves working with novice & 'lapsed' riders helping them to establish confidence, fitness and enjoyment in the saddle again.  

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

I can help you both get in the saddle consistently and in a way that will help you feel confident and 'at ease' while there

Your Risk Free Guarantee

I believe in this program and how valuable it can be for you - if you commit to doing the work.  The simple fact remains that wishing, hoping and praying will not improve your skills as a rider - action is necessary in order to improve. 

I am offering you a no risk money back guarantee for the first 7 days of the program.  All you have to do is send an email to [email protected] explaining why you want your money back - and we will gladly oblige you. Due to the fact that you can download the material, we have a strict no refund policy in place after 7 days.

However, if you do the work and still feel that you have not moved forward in your riding, we commit to working more closely with you in order to create positive change in your riding.  


Returning to Riding gives you the tools, training and support you need to begin really understanding the conversation - and your role in it.
