The classical principles of the Old Masters have been handed down for centuries, encouraging empathy with our friend the horse and 'Harmony In Horsemanship'. Many equestrians realise that there is 'a kinder way to ride', but do not know where to look for such help and guidance.
Therefore, CRC has compiled a Directory of some who are able to proffer such instruction and tuition. All Trainers listed have reaffirmed their commitment to the CRC Charter, which embodies the very ethos of the classical ideals. Whilst the majority of those listed within the Directory are from the UK, there are some Overseas entries.
As well as the all important contact details, additional information such as experience, taught by, influenced by, schoolmasters, base & facility, clinics/freelance, insurance details and 'interpretation of classical' enable the reader to make an informed decision with regards to which Trainer to approach.
As with all Club publications, it should be noted that the CRC Trainers Directory remains purely an informational tool. Indeed, there are many kind and understanding trainers (many of whom may not even call themselves ‘classical’!) who can help and guide you along this worthwhile path of achievement... if you find any of these gems, please be sure to introduce them to CRC!
ADDITIONS TO THE DIRECTORY
If you would you like to be added to the Trainers' Directory, there is a one-off fee of £12.50. To be added click here: http://www.classicalriding.co.uk/product/trainers-directory/
Whilst this list is maintained in all good faith by the club for the benefit of the visitors to the website, CRC are unable to vet or approve individuals or their entries. Anyone taking advantage of these details, should therefore be prepared to make their own checks and judgements prior to any consultation.

Interpretation of Classical : To me, classical means educating the horse physically and mentally so that he can be relaxed and happy in his work. This means teaching riders to train with knowledge of correct biomechanics and kind and positive methods.Read more...
Miss Eva Marunova
Number of Years Experience: 6 years (since 2011)
Interpretation of Classical : A logical approach to training of horses and riders with horse welfare as the top priority. A system of training which takes into account biomechanics of the horse’s movement and teaches riders how to move with the horse in balance and with softness. Correct training, with no shortcuts or gadgets, takes time for both horses and riders hence patience and commitment to continuous self-improvement is required from both classical riders and trainers.Read more...
