John Saint Ryan is available to come to your facility to teach and help develop your skills.

John is unlike many established Clinicians who are happy to work at the level they have achieved. John continues to strive for a better way of communicating with both the horse and rider and as such spends a great deal of time himself in the study of advanced horsemanship. He currently attends seminars and takes private lessons with Rodrigo da Costa Matos, Senior Rider with the Escola Portuguesade Arte Equestre and Resident Director of Morgado Lusitano in Portugal.



Hosting a John Saint Ryan clinic is a wonderful way to introduce others to Johnsí skills & experience as a teacher/trainer & rider.

His ability to help other riders & their horses has been honed over several decades.

His teachings include work from his studies with Tom Dorrance & Classical Masters, together with his academic studies through the International Society for Equitation Science.

Johnsí clinics are open to horses & riders from all breeds & disciplines.

...Being able to read the emotions of both (horse and rider) and encouraging them to proceed at a pace not so slow as to be boring, but not so quick as to scare both parties concerned is a delicate process. To let someone guide you there takes faith. I have complete faith in John Saint Ryan and his love for people and for horses." - Laurie
