My name is Susie Butler and I am a Heart Centred Riding Coach. I am BHSAI qualified and have also recently released my first book.

As well as offering tuition through short courses, books and podcasts, I also provide private coaching sessions to horse owners.

To deliver this coaching, I am currently able to travel to horse riders within the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire & Essex areas.

I teach in both flatwork and jumping, with an emphasis on how the horse and rider are communicating with each other.

I help riders understand why their horses aren’t necessarily giving them the correct answer and how they can put simple steps in place to improve their horse’s willingness, cooperation and technique.

These simple steps may include making some subtle changes through the rider’s position, which will have a noticeable impact on how your horse hears you.

I may also include helping with the rider’s mindset, to help bring the rider’s thoughts more in line with what they want to achieve. Again, this creates clearer communication between horse and rider.

Heart Centred Riding really is about helping your horse to hear you and bringing the mind and body into alignment. If this is something you are interested in learning more about, or if you would like to book a lesson, please use the contact details below and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Prices start from (dependent on post-code):

  • £25 – 30 minutes
  • £30 – 45 minutes
  • £40 – 1 hour

I am also able to offer horse owners the option to travel to me for lessons. Please ask for more information if this is something you would like to do.

“Recently Susie joined a yard where I was working at with her amazing horse Magic. After a couple of days of settling in, it was clear to see the amazing bond that Susie has with her horse; from how she rides him, to understanding his behaviour. This was brilliant as it opened my eyes to a whole new world of horses and their ability to communicate with us. 

From a young age I have always been around horses and animals, and shared too. When I first started to ride, to possibly a year ago. I was always taught that if the horse was naughty or difficult it was generally down to a couple of factors; “Needs a stronger bit”, “You’re not a good enough rider” or “ It’s just a bit green, hasn’t been ridden in ages!”

However after meeting Susie and having lessons with her, she made me understand more about horses and what they were trying to tell me, without Susie I don’t think I would have been able to build such fantastic relationships with the horses that I ride now.”
